I've been a regular at T.J. Maxx for years now. There are two locations in my town and it's a good idea to hit them often since stock changes so quickly. But just because the bargains fly fast and furious doesn't mean you won't find good stuff on a regular basis. I love finding brand name stuff at almost absurd discounts, it makes me feel frugal even when I'm going overboard…thankfully, T.J. Maxx merchandise runs the gamut from clothing for all ages to home decor, bath and beauty products, luxury jewelry and accessories, kitchenware, toys and books, even gourmet pantry items! Unlike other discount retailers, most of the items are simply overstocked and are on-trend and in-season.
Lucky me! I was given $50 to spend at T.J. Maxx and it wasn't hard to find things I wanted. I saw a Tokidoki laptop case, DKNY and Calvin Klein clothing for the kids, hiking socks for Bob, shoes galore. In the end, I went the selfish route and decided to buy luxury bath products and a pair of classic pumps. I was so thrilled to splurge- fancy body lotions and soap are not usually part of my budget.
Nine West high heels, Nars bath salts and lotion ($75 and $40 on their website!), Korres lotion ($15!) and a gigantic bar of Bliss Spa soap ($18!) for under fifty dollars is pretty darned good. (And, yes, I did buy more that did not get photographed. You know I can't resist a good deal…)
I highly recommend perusing the wares at T.J. Maxx (or their sister store, Marshall's, which apparently has an even more extensive shoe collection. Squee!) often. Are you up for some shopping this Labor Day weekend?
