At T.J.Maxx and Marshalls, parents can find everything on their shopping lists, including plaid tunics, updated denim, backpacks and even school supply sets
I was provided $50 in gift cards to shop and tell you about my experience. I jumped at the chance to do this, as I already love both stores AND my oldest needs clothes for kindergarten: a new school year plus a growth spurt equaled almost no clothes that fit him hanging in his closet!
We shopped at Marshalls simply because it is closer to us and we found a lot there. This was the first time that I really let my son pick out his own clothes. I thought I’d let him take the lead and see what he came up with!
Though, I have to admit that it was hard not to be distracted by the cute clothes I saw for me or the fun things I saw for around the house. I had to keep reminding myself that we were there for school shopping!
How funny that Daddy’s taste apparently got passed down, since almost all the clothes that my son picked out were Polo or Tommy Hilfiger. Take a look at the great deals we found! Video below: if not appearing, please refresh page.
Polo shirts: $9.99-$12.99
Toy Story and Ecko shirts: $7.99
3 pack character underwear: $4.99
3 pack character socks: $2.99
3 piece Spiderman outfit: clearance-priced $7
How do T.J.Maxx and Marshalls provide shoppers with such incredible savings? With more than 900 stores across the country, there is a great deal of buying power behind both chains that allows a lot of flexibility in negotiating prices. T.J.Maxx and Marshalls buyers also buy merchandise closer to the time it is needed in stores, which opens up opportunities to score great deals on current season styles. They are able to offer amazing fashions from department and mall store brands at excellent value.
I will definitely be doing more shopping at Marshalls! And recommend that you check them out, too!
