There are 2 kinds of shopping: the boring, have-to-get-it-done kind and the fun, euphoric, look-at-all-this-great-stuff kind. For me, TJ Maxx and Marshalls are the epitome of the fun kind. I LOVE to shop, but I don't always have the time or the money to do it. When TJ Maxx and Marshalls contacted me to go shopping in their stores, I couldn't have been more excited! I was given a gift card for each store and I couldn't believe how much great stuff I could find at both!
Since I always buy stuff for my kids, I made the decision that I'd use this opportunity to shop for myself. I will admit, I felt a little guilty about it, but we mommies have to take care of ourselves every once in a while, too, right? I needed so many things so I wasn't exactly sure where to start. These stores are great because you can find pretty much anything you're looking for all in one place. I looked at everything from boots to bathroom rugs!
At Marshalls I ended up getting a cute orange wrap sweater for only $19.99 and a 6-pack of some really comfy socks for $6.99. I was really impressed at the variety of Christmas gifts they had to choose from. They had a great selection of toys for the kids and all kinds of unique gifts for adults, from beautiful picture frames to gourmet chocolates.
At TJ Maxx I ended up buying more since I was shopping without kids this time! I got a super cozy pair of Nautica pajamas that retail for $50 for only $19.99! I also got a pretty new bra for the unheard-of price of $7.99 and a silky nightie for $12.99. I found a great set of thick velvety gloves (which I was in desperate need of) for $14.99 as well. I had a great time shopping at TJ Maxx since I could take my time and look at all of the great things they had there. I can't wait to go back again!
If you are still looking to finish up that Christmas shopping or you just need a mommy's day out to find a few things for yourself, I highly recommend checking out a Marshalls or TJ Maxx near you! You won't be disappointed and you won't believe the awesome selection of items available!
