Marshalls and TJ Maxx have all your back to school needs covered, from clothes, to writing accessories, to shoes.
There were some models showing us the beautiful outfits possible from shopping at these great stores. The two younger boys had on almost identical outfits, except one was half the price of the other and purchased at Marshalls! But, which one?
I am now going off topic to talk about my families favorite stores. You all know the great deals at these stores, and you know they have everything for your back to school needs. Now I will tell you why my family goes to Marshalls and TJ Maxx at least once a month, if not more.
Even though TJ Maxx has a slightly higher proportion of women’s items, my spouse still seems to find the belts and dress shirts he needs for work. And find them he did when we visited both stores on a recent trip to visit my parents. We hit TJ Maxx first, my spouse shopped while my son and I ate next door. As I said, he bought some dress shirts and a belt, then I ran in and bought a Ben 10 action figure from the new collection (yes, they have tons of current merchandise in clothing and toys, and everything in between!).
Next we went to the shopping center a mile away that had the Marshalls store that I grew up with. My spouse continued his quest for even more dress shirts (he must have over a hundred at this point) and my son and I hung out in the toy section again. My son bought a diary from the Wimpy Kid series, and I bought him a pair of gym shorts.
We always find items we need at Marshalls and TJ Maxx. It is our destination for discount quality shopping. That’s why this was an easy blog post to write.
What else do I get at Marshalls? I have been known to pick up Lego sets: automatically half price. You know when one is a shopaholic like me you cannot afford to spend full retail for Legos, any toys, or any items. And you never know when merchandise will come in so you have to check back regularly, because the smart shoppers like me know these hot items will fly off the shelves.
And where did my mother-in-law’s Christmas present come from this past December? TJ Maxx. I bought her a 12 inch large skillet. No, not for her to hit her least favorite son-in-law over the head with! She kept asking me for a hand me down pan (she thinks I have too many), so I got her a new one at TJ Maxx and made her holiday. She still remarks about how much she loves it. (Did I mention she is a fantastic cook?) I prefer my gifts to be useful, I certainly hit the mark this holiday season.
Now you know some of my shopping secrets for saving money and staying fashionable!
