I won!

I'm sure you've seen lots of giveaways and reviews from CSN stores.  CSN is this huge website with over 200 stores all in one place, they have everything from that perfect counter stool to a much needed power tool, rain boots to kitchen gadgets, kids' toys to craft items... basically anything one could want.  Well, a little while back I won a giveaway for a $30 CSN stores gift certificate from Running Lawyer at Running from the Law? (thanks Running Lawyer!) and was so excited!  As soon as I found out I won, I started scouring their websites trying to figure out the best way to spend my money.  Long story short, it's been several weeks and I still haven't decided on anything!

I think I need some help.  Originally I thought I'd use the money towards some awesome wellies, like these
   but then I realized that $30 wouldn't be enough off for me to justify the purchase.  ($123 for rain boots?!  Probably not right now.)  Too bad.  :(  I was thinking that maybe I'd get something for my kids, maybe a Christmas goody, but Dan said I should be selfish with the money.  Okay, doesn't take much to convince me to be selfish.  So now I'm thinking I might get a foam roller because I've heard that all the cool kids are using them to keep their muscles in tip top shape.   What are your thoughts?  Do you foam roll?  Is it helpful to your tight spots?  If I don't get a foam roller, what should I get?!  I can't believe I'm having such a hard time spending money...  What would you spend $30 on?

OMG a foam roller is the bomb! You MUST get one! It'll hurt (bad)at first but it's sooooo worth it!
BTW Sahalie.com has Bogs boots for 25% off...not that I'd know anything about that...

Before you even said foam roller, that's what I was thinking to recommend. ;-) The right price point... and that's what I spent my last CSN $ on!!!

I love to use my roller! Great for the IT band, sadly I know too much about that. I just upgraded to the The Grid by Trigger Point, awesome!
