I’m always surprised by the low prices at T.J. Maxx and Marshalls when I go in. It seems like one of those stores that I keep forgetting about when I’m making my shopping lists for gifts or needed household items. But as soon as I walk in, I am loyal yet again. If you are looking for an inexpensive gift, I recommend checking out one or both of these stores. This is especially true if you are looking for toys. I consistently saw prices on toys for 30-40% cheaper than Amazon.com. One of my favorite deals I saw was for Disney Princess and Disney Fairies purses, backpacks and dresses. The prices ranged from $4.99-$9.99, which is more than 50% cheaper than other places.
Since I’ve already gotten both of my children their Christmas presents, I let my husband use the gift card that T.J. Maxx and Marshalls sent me to get himself a much needed new winter coat. With the weather reaching record lows here in Georgia, his windbreaker and T-shirts weren’t cutting it.
Everywhere else I looked for a deal on this wool coat that he wanted, the prices were $100-$200. Sorry, but this Thrifty Mama would have a conniption paying that amount. At Marshalls, this coat was $69.99. Not as cheap as a thrift store, mind you, but definitely the best deal to be had for those running out in the middle of winter to find a coat. Believe me, I already scoped out the thrift stores, and they didn’t have anything near this nice!
And doesn’t he look handsome in it?
So what is it you are looking for? Whether it’s a coat, toys, home decor or just much needed new clothes, one lucky reader is going to win a $100 gift card to spend at T.J. Maxx and Marshalls!
