Have you checkedo ut Marshalls and TJ Maxx lately?

Buyers for Marshalls and TJ Maxx travel all around the world 40 weeks a year to meet with 12,000 different vendors, allowing them to snag the hottest in-season trends as they happen and negotiate prices up to 60% less than department stores. 10,000 new items arrive in every store each week, creating a “new store” feel every time shoppers visit.

Toy Story 3 Look and FindIf you've never visited one of these stores, you're missing out.  I had never really been in them until a good friend introduced me to them about a year ago.  Now Marshalls is a go to place when I have the urge to just go and look around to see what's new.  I did this just the other night, with my friend.  I was armed with a gift card and not entirely sure what I was looking for.  Well except that I HAD to get something for Bryan because he wasn't happy with me leaving him to go out.  (Yes, I know. I'm NOT above bribery! But it totally worked. He happily waved goodbye after I promised him something.)
FHI Heat Pink Nano Professional Light Weight Ceramic Tourmaline 1800 Watt Hair Dryer with Nano-Fuzeion TechnologyWe arrived around 7:3- and were thrilled to learn they were open until 9:30. Plenty of time to wander and look.  Strolling around the store is a lot of fun because you just never know what great little treasure you might find.  We looked at shoes, bath and beauty items. housewares, toys, clothes and books to name a few.  In the end, I purchased a professional hair dryer (which I really needed) original $69, for $24.99, a Toy Story book for Bryan originally $15.99 for $7.99, a professional grade brush (forgot to check the tag for original price) for $5.99 and some great sweaters for the boys for $19 each originally like $59.  I'm hoping to use the sweaters for some new photos of the boys soon.  So I got some great deals, but really the best part is the fun of shopping there.  If I'd had more to spend, I would have spent a ton more because they had some great clothes, including a really great sweater that I MAY have to go back for, for my husband. 

As a super value shopper, these stores won't ever replace my cheapo discount store play clothes for the kids, but its great for real QUALITY items at a great price.  The fashions are great with name brands like Nike and Puma, Carters, etc for kids clothes.  And in the beauty department there are names like Philosophy and Jonathon.

Check out some of the looks you might find in stores.  Get set for fall with fashions from TJ Maxx and Marshalls.
