Back to School with TJ Maxx And Marshall’s~ $25 Giveaway

Back-to-school shopping is more than just shopping for crayons, notepads and pencils – it’s also about shopping for the latest trends for your students. And the latest trends, like everything else, can add up in a hurry especially if your kiddos have fashion opinions of there own (which mine does, if you consider PINK a fashion opinion).

Two of my favorite places to shop are TJ Maxx and Marshall’s. Of course, I love the discounted prices, but I also love the thrill of the hunt. At TJ Maxx and Marhsall’s you never know what you are going to find because the inventory changes weekly. Yes, weekly. In fact, each store receives 10,000 new pieces of new merchandise weekly to restock the shelves. That’s a lot of stuff.

TJ Maxx

With so many things to offer, it is a rare trip to TJ Maxx that I leave with empty hands. Of course, our TJ Maxx is also attached to a Home Goods — so it is double trouble for me! (Picked up a shelf and canvas for K’s room today!)

Right now TJ Maxx and Marshall’s are ready for back-to-school shoppers from hot trends in clothes, shoes, accessories, backpacks and more.

Back to School

Here’s something to think about… TJ Maxx and Marshall’s are off-price retailers, rather than discount retailers. This means that while both off-price retailers and a discount retailers might sell backpacks for $19.99, the off-price one was made to sell for $40, whereas the discount retailer’s was made to sell for $19.99. Interesting thought…

While K doesn’t know name brands yet, there comes a day in every girl’s fashion life that they want to wear name brands (boys too). If your student is addicted to name brands, you gotta shop TJ Maxx and Marshall’s to save.
