Get Your Family's Spring Wardrobe For Less At T.J. Maxx and Marshalls Review And Giveaway

With the economy in the gutter, consumers are looking for ways to cut back and become savvy shoppers. Finding quality clothing at affordable prices can be difficult, but I want my family to still dress in stylish products.

T.J. Maxx and Marshalls are two places you can shop and learn “Off-Price 101”; quality designer fashions at a fraction of the price. They carry the same merchandise at 60% less than department stores so that customers everywhere can live the designer life without designer prices. Not only do they carry fashionable clothing, but they also have home decor, accessories, toys, and more.

Marshalls sent me a $25 gift card.


I have always been a huge fan of Marshalls and T.J. Maxx. I can find all of the items that I love at a fraction of the cost. Many pieces in our wardrobe have been purchased at these two stores.

I'm sure people looked at me like I was insane, but I snapped a few pictures while we were there. This was just one row of their fantastic selection of shoes.


They had several racks and two walls adorned with dresses for spring. They had several designers include Calvin Klein and they were split up according to size so it was easy to find what you wanted.


I'm a little obsessed with baby/toddler clothing and these shoes were only $5!


Their prices are fantastic to begin with, but they often have several clearance items as well. I happened to be in there at the end of summer one year and bought several blow up pools, slip and slides, and other summer items on clearance for under $5 each! Here is a shot of just a few of the toys that they had this weekend.


I have heard great things about this Rose Petal Cottage and I saw it out of the corner of my eye while we were shopping this weekend. It retails for $200 and it was on clearance at Marshalls for $39. It was too good of a deal to pass up.


If you want quality, designer products at a fraction of the cost, visit your local T.J. Maxx or Marshalls for some amazing deals.

I shopped at Marshall's once when in Chicago and I found a nice carry-on bag to take with me on a flight. Priced pretty reasonably. I have yet to shop at TJ MAXX.

I've shopped at Marshall's & found cool stuff, but there isn't one in this area. Only TJ Maxx, which also ROCKS! I love going there for home decor, clothing, and even props for my photography business. They always have the most unique, amazing stuff there.

TJ Maxx and Marshall's are a couple of my favorite places to shop and usually my default when I'm looking for something specific for myself.

I'll need to head there again soon since I'm about to deliver my 3rd boy and going to seriously need some non-maternity clothing!

I love to shop at Marshalls because I always find great deals on designer shoes and clothes and household items. I've actually never been to T.J. Max, but my boss had this super cute purse and when I complimented on it, she said it was her T.J. Max deal of the week. So, needless to say, I've been wanting to check out T.J. Max
