To continue to track squeeze just update sources to point to squeeze instead of testing then ....apt update && apt dist-upgrade should do it. Doing so will pull in the Mint DE update manager ... after that you can stick with squeeze, switch to testing, incomming etc ... A temporary switch to Squeeze before update & dist-upgrade keeps your options open for future repositories use.
Ed: and sources info is available here

Don't know if it helps/applies to mint, but there's this sources list genereator:

For LMDE it's better to use their own repos. They are Debian Testing but have been tested for stability by the Mint community. This means they are slightly behind the Debian one but there are fewer breakages caused by updates.

I use Mate Desktop so no Gnomes Hell here either and I do prefer the "Latest" repos as the software is more up to date with most of the testing repository risk mitigated. I didn't think the newest LMDE isos could use the stable repositories anyway as they are to far behind now. Which of course won't be a problem for the OP.
Still, I'm probably going to be installing LMDE on another laptop soon so I feel an experiment coming on...

For a fresh stable install see here
Ed: I use the linuxmint-debian-201012-gnome-dvd-amd64.iso for doing Mint installs. The alternative 1 link still works for amd64 version and alternative link 2 works for the i386 version

That's where I read about the newest isos not being compatible with the stable repositories.
