FOR HER: TJ Maxx/Marshalls

tj-maxx-marshallsHave you been to TJ Maxx/Marshalls lately? They're essentially the same "kind" of store. You can shop for Ugg boots, Tommy Hilfiger tees, New Balance tennis shoes, Hasbro toys, and more...all at discounted prices.

The Marshalls website boasts that, "80% our of our items are under $20" (does that phrase say "stocking stuffers" to anyone?)...and I bet TJ Maxx has similar stats. You can find clothing, shoes, cookware, books, toys, linens, just about everything...all under one roof.

I know because I was just at TJ Maxx this morning. I picked up a Joseph Abboud wallet, a men's belt, a ceramic serving platter and serving bowl, and an iPod headset for under $50.

tj maxx fashionThese kind of stores are excellent for "treasure hunters." If you like shops that offer continuously changing inventory, then you'll love "digging for gold" at TJ Maxx and Marshalls. There are bargains to be found, that's a sure fact...but it does require some effort. You can't simply do a quick website search for the exact item that you're looking for and pull out your credit card (in fact, you can't purchase inventory on their website at all because it changes so quickly...). You have to enjoy the thrill of not knowing what might await you when you walk through those automatic glass doors.

So, tell me. What kind of shopper are YOU? Do you take pleasure in the hunting process and do your eyes light up when you find just the right things for just the right person? OR...do you prefer the predictability of wish lists and online shopping? I have to admit I fall in the latter category most of the time (there's nothing like shopping in your PJs and waiting for your package to arrive). But that doesn't mean that I'm not up for a little bargain-searching every once in awhile...

WIN IT! There will be two winners. Each winner will receive a $25 gift card to Marshalls. To enter, leave a comment (feel free to say if you've shopped at either store, what you love about the stores, what you would improve about the stores...just about anything) on this post prior to Monday, December 15 at midnight (don’t forget to follow the rules). * Winner must provide a U.S. mailing address.

FOR AN EXTRA ENTRY: Link to my site! Anywhere! You can add one of my buttons to your blog, add me to your blogroll, add my site to your Facebook page, you choose…Then, come back here and leave a second comment with a link to where you linked to me.

  1. I love both T.J Maxx and Marshalls. I love to find that deal for the right occasion. I like T.J Maxx more for personal items and Marshalls for their higher end selections.

  2. TJMaxx has been growing on me. I've been in their several times with my sister because it's her favorite store. I just bought a new wallet and my Christmas cards at TJMaxx and am 110% satisfied with the prices and purchase!

  3. My two favorite stores in the world-have been for years even before the economy tanked. I'm always flattered on the way I dress. They will have a limited supply of items so you don't look like everyone else.

  4. I absolutely love shopping at TJ Max and Marshall's. I love how they have so many cute name brand clothes that are inexpensive. I am a big bargain shopper, and I don't pay full price for anything. I know I'm always going to get a great deal at these stores.

    I love marshalls because they have great sales and even items not on sale are fairly priced.

  6. i am a clearance shopper if there is a clearance im there..i swear to god when im in a store if they have clearance signs my radar hones in and finds them..lol

  7. I shop at both TjMaxx and Marshalls, although much more a Tjmaxx. I am like you, I love being comfy at home when I shop, but sometimes I just need to get out and shop in person. Not clothes shopping which I just want to get it over with, but looking at things for the house, there is no substitute for being there to see the merchandise.

    I especially love that about TjMaxx, they have so many items for the home and you couldn't possibly see it all online.

  8. I frequently shop at both stores - TJMaxx and Marshalls. I always find great deals on quality items. I prefer to shop for people in a sort of serendipitous way...no pre-planning unless I know there is something that they really want.

  9. My first job ever was at Marshalls! I love the home department, but sometimes it's a little cluttered. You need to have time to spend poking around, but you can get some really good deals.

  10. I am an avid bargain hunter and TJ Max is just the place to fill all our needs. I will typically check TJ’s before shopping anywhere else. Most recently, I shopped there to help get my daughter ready for college. She needed everything from bedding to bathroom accessories. We found the best deals on designer bedding and bathroom items and we saved a bundle to boot! I don’t know that I could suggest any improvements at this time. One of the reasons I continue to go back is because the stores are always kept clean and well organized. I am always able to find quality items and very rarely have to return anything.

  11. I adore TJ Maxx. It's where I buy all of my sheets, holiday decorations and stocking stockers. Unique items at a great price!

  12. I love the Marshalls and TJ Max here its close to my home and has great prices. I usually get shoes there, great selection. They are both in the same shopping center so Yeah me!

  13. LOVE the store....maybe it is because it has the same name as my husband! lol It is the one store that he doesn't mind me spending money in. The one stop shop for all of your needs. Great selection of clothes, home decor, shoes, etc.

    Happy Holidays!!!

  14. I don't shop there as much as I'd like because I feel you really need to have a ton of time to spend to do either store justice. But I did recently purchase a bunch of stuff from Marshalls.

  15. I have never been to a Marshalls. They are just now spreading to our area. Love TJ MAXX. We live in a country bumpkin area so it is a treat to shop at their stores.

  16. I've shopped at Marshalls. I love the surprise bargains I've found. The stores appear to be somewhat disorganized.

  17. I love the fact that they have awesome prices and I can always step into their stores and find something that I am looking for. Thanks for a great giveaway :)

  18. I love shopping at both TJ Maxx and Marshalls. I always find great stuff there.
    The one think I'd improve is the cleanliness of the stores. Every time I go there's always merchandise on the floor.

  19. I usually visit TJ Maxx once a month. I love their purses and their holiday decorations. I am amazed that they changed their checkout procedure! I used to get so mad that I'd be in the shortest line and still be the last one out! Now there's a queue and an automated announcement telling the next person in line where to go...to check out. :-)
    I do wish they had more kids clothes.

  20. I love to online shop because i can compare prices and take the time to really think about the purchase. I will put things in my shopping cart, look for codes, and then decide if it is what I really want. However, I have a hard time resisting clearance signs at my favorite stores.

  21. Oh, I do love Marshalls! Sometimes I'll go in to just "browse", but that store always holds wonderful surprises in every nook and cranny and I end up bringing yet another treasure home with me!

  22. I have shopped at T J Maxx many times and love their soaps and other spa type items they have at great discount prices. I have not shopped at Marshall's.

  23. I like TJ Maxx, they always have great name-brand handbags, which are my addiction. Marshall's has some good stuff too, but they are always messy I've found. Thanks for the giveaway!

  24. I love to take my time while shopping. I like to go from area to area and go back to the first area. Try everything on. Pick the best and how much according to my budget.

  25. I love TJ Maxx. You never know what you will find until you get there. For holiday shopping, I usually "have a purpose" get in and get out, but for my own personal shopping, I enjoy the treasure hunt of TJ maxx and similar stores.

  26. I love shopping at Marshall's and TJMaxx. I feel so accomplished when I can dig around in there for a while and come out with tons of clothes, shoes, and housewares for so little money. And it's really quality stuff! The last time I was there I got a totally cute bag for $25 that was originally over $200.

  27. I love both stores. I have found great deals on shoes at Marshalls. I also love that they have a great candy and gourmet food selection at the holidays. Thanks for the chance to win!

  28. I would love to win a Marshall's gift card. I shop there a lot and really love the store especially the good deals they have on clothing and shoes there. I also shop at TJMaxx a lot and love the deals you can find on shoes and clothing there as well. This is a great giveaway and I really hope I win. Thanks.

  29. i LOVE BOTH STORE AND WOULD NOT CHANGE A THING. i DON NOT MIND LOOKING AROUND A MESSY STORE BECAUSE THE BARGAINS ARE SO GREAT!

  30. I love the creativity and challenge of finding just the right gift for people. Although, I will say that for some people the list is just so much easier.

  31. I am a bargain shopper! I love to find just the right item at just the right price! Marshall's is one of the stores I really enjoy shopping. Sure don't know what I would change about them!

  32. I have a new Marshall's that just opened down the street from me. It's become my new favorite shopping store. I love the styles they carry and the prices are just right for my budget.

  33. I have a TJ Maxx very close to me so I have shopped there alot - you have to get there early to avoid the crowds around the holidays but I have been known to find high end boutique cosmetics there for about 75% off retail! I love it!

  34. I'm definitely a bargain shopper! It's so much fun to snag "the perfect thing" for a great buy. I live in a small town that doesn't have either of these stores, however I frequently drive into "The Big City" to run errands, so if I won I'd love to use these on one of those trips! I enjoy shopping at these stores, even though I don't get to do it much! Thank you for all the awesome giveaways!!!

  35. I haven't shopped at either on a regular basis in awhile. The nearest ones are an hour away. I really need to check them out next time I am in the area. Of course if I win I will definitely go. Actually I didn't even know TJMaxx was there until I used the store locator while entering this giveaway.

  36. I love TJ max becouse there is always something new stylish and affordable! We do not have a Marshall's around where I live but I have heard that they are great too!

  37. I'm not fond of shopping at all. I know, I'm unusual for a female! But when I can find a bargain at TJ Maxx it's worth the effort. I do wish they could be a bit more organized. It just makes my shopping ordeal more difficult.

  38. I love both stores and haave found the most amazing deals there! My fav is a super calvin klein shirt for just $25 at tjmaxx!

  39. I love their home decor section...I've only recently discovered it, and it's a great way to buy home decorations very inexpensively!

  40. I've never been to either store. They're not close enough to my home, but I'd love to win to send to my mom as a gift.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  41. I've never shopped at Marshalls...Hmmmm..I like the toy section..It's just a bit difficulty to navigate the site...can I actually buy things online or do you have to go in to the store?

    I do like shopping online...it's so easy/convenient...

    But there is also something about that instant gratification of getting the item without having to wait for it.

    Love to bargain shop!

  42. i love Marshalls, its so similar to Winners, a Canadian store i used to shop in when i lived up in Canada. thanks for the giveaway!

  43. When it comes to shopping, I'm either a speed-demon or a turtle. It all depends on my mission. Regardless, I look for the best deal and I know it's usually at Marshall's or TJ Maxx.

  44. I love shopping at TJMaxx and Marshalls. I have been shopping there for years and years! I have purchased so many clothes for the entire family at a fraction of the cost of regular department stores. I am always amazed at how they carry the exact same thing that I have seen in department stores for almost half the price. And, if you are lucky enough, you may even find the item of your dreams on Sale which means you may even be able to purchase things for 75% less! I also have decorated and accessorized our home with so many fabulous beautiful items from their home departments. Things like sheets, towels, rugs, lamps, just to name a few at really incredible low prices and truly gorgeous items! Thanks for the opportunity to enter!

  45. Have shopped at both, have to admit I am not one that loves the hunt. am more of an online shopper. Marshalls has some really great stuff for the home and TJ is more about the clothes.

  46. I shop more at Marshalls now since there's one about 7 minutes from my home. However, in the past, I've shopped at both about equally. I love, love, love the shoe department at both stores!

  47. I like to shop at Marshall's because I am able to find one-off gifts at great prices. Thanks for the chance.

  48. When I have alittle extra money, I always go to Marshalls. There is nothing I would change about this store. They have everything, including designer labels at such a fraction of the cost. It definitely pays to shop at Marshalls :)

  49. I love shopping!! I absolutly have a shopping addiction ( at least my husband says so) so i tell him you know that feeling you get when the Yankees are tied up with the Red Sox bottom of the 9th, and your heart is pumping, hands are sweating, and you can here nothing or no one else around you (ecspecially me) then when derek jeter slides into home and you here YAAAAAANKEESSS WIN, well that's exactly how i feel when I find the perfect bargains at Marshalls and TJ MAXX!!!

  50. I've shopped at Marshalls alot - not sure about TJMaxx. I do like Marshalls for the variety but every time I go into one, its cluttered and messy. Again though, I love the variety - oooh and the employees always seem nice.

  51. I am an impulsive shopper which means I have to be very careful when going into stores ESPECIALLY TJ maxx because it's right near my house and there's always a sale and great items in the kids department!

  52. I've shopped at both stores, and love finding a bargain there! I have a beautiful jacket that I found at TJ Maxx last year that everyone compliments me on. I paid a fraction of the original price as it was on clearance.

    Thanks for the giveaway!!

  53. We love TJ Maxx and Marshalls around here! My husband gets most of his work wardrobe there for much less than it would be otherwise. Just a few weeks ago I picked up a really cute sweater for myself and fun tights for my girls.

  54. I like the Marshall's that I go to, but I do wish it were more organized. However I've seen what people do to their products and know how hard it must be. I'll keep shopping there anyway!

  55. I have become much more practical in my old age and much less of an impulse shopper. I usually go out searching for one thing...only when I need it now. I love Marshall's...I just have to be in the mood to deal with the mess sometimes. They cram a lot in that little store! But I'd be willing to go any ol' time for a gift card ;).

  56. I love Marshalls! It's saved me this year when trying to provide a Christmas on a very, very small budget! Thanks for the great giveaway!

  57. Yes, yes, yes!!! Marshalls always has great deals like Stride Rite shoes. THat's the only place my son can get shoes and this would be helpful to put towards discount big shoes. Thank you.

  58. I am an obsessive dicount shopper. I have a good amount of money but due to all the amazing deals I have scored in the past I generally refuse to pay face value. There are so many great sales and deals to be had both online and in stores.
    Tip: check out online coupon codes, so amazing!

  59. I tend to shop more at TJ Maxx than Marshalls. I also love the Homegoods store which is the home side of TJ Maxx. I love the good deals you can find and the homegoods website has a great area where you can post pictures of your finished room and what you found at the store. It's inspiring. I wish that you could actually shop on the TJ Maxx website though. That's a defenite downfall.

  60. There are some things that I will only buy at places like TJ Maxx and Marshalls. Sunglasses are at the top of the list. I also love looking for shoes and purses there.

  61. I love TJ Maxx! I don't mind searching for a good deal, which I usually find one. The store does tend to be a bit unorganized, but I still like to "dig" for gold! Thanks for the chance to win!

  62. I love TJ Maxx! They always have things you can't find anywhere else in our small town! I'm definitely a treasure hunter, and I love the thrill of scoring a good bargain!

  63. I love both stores, but Marshall's is the closest. I go there most often. I am an avid bargain hunter, and Marshall's has GREAT bargains. If I could improve something about both stores, it would be customer service. Their stores are neat and clean and laid out nicely, but I frequently find less than helpful employees.

  64. I've shopped at Marshall's, and have appreciated getting some good deals on high quality toys. They seem to be slightly better organized than places like Ross. With two small children in tow, though, I don't have much time to dig for deals, so I don't shop there as often as I might otherwise.

  65. I love both of these stores - because I am a treasure hunter... you never know what you will find and I've really been able to "wow" some people with unique gifts that didn't cost a fortune by shopping at places like TJ Maxx, Marshall's and Tuesday Morning!

  66. I have never shopped at TJ Maxx, but have gone to Marshall's a number of times, it's 5 minutes from my house. I have had luck a few times, I even got a dress for a wedding I attended. You have to shop well and search every rack, but that's the fun of shopping!

  67. I was at Marshall's just looking around, and I picked up a queen-size sheet set and notice that it was about $15 or so. I checked the thread count and it was a high number (can't quite remember). Anyway, I decided to go ahead and get them. They are the best, softest, thickest sheets I've ever had and I LOVE them. And they were so cheap! I KNOW I got a grea deal! Love it! Great giveaway - thanks for offering!

  68. TJ Maxx scares me a bit. I love their toy section and shop there for toys all the time. I get super excited when I find a great deal on a toy. I found a wonderful wooden block set for about $20. And they always have a great selection of Melissa and Doug products. But what scares me is the clothing section. I have never shopped in the clothes because the jumble of all those clothes hanging together just unnerves me. I like to see clothes in neat stacks and all together so I can easily find the size and style that I like. Maybe I'll venture into the clothes if I'm lucky enough to win the gift card.

  69. I have shopped at TJMaxx for years! And now I find all sorts of cool toys that I don't see anywhere else for my little guy. I love a bargain and TJ's is it for me.

  70. While I enjoy the prices of places like Marshalls (and I have shopped there and done well before), I tend to enjoy the ease of some of the larger and/or more organized stores. I'm still kind of getting my feet wet with online shopping, although I've done a little bit this year. I guess I'll do a little of everything with my shopping, and that's what works best for me right now.

  71. We don't have a Marshall's but my friend was wearing a cute scarf from there ... guess I better try it out. I do happen to have the best TJ Max & More in all of Utah right here in St. George - all the furniture & clothing you could want in a store!

  72. I really like both Marshall's & TJMaxx. I wished there was a store closer to me, though. The closes one (of either store) is 30+ min. away. But, I'll say that I've found some great deals when I've shopped there!

  73. I love both stores for the deals on current fashion and brand name items, but also begin to feel overwhelmed by messiness and disorganization in the store. Doesn't stop me from shopping there {smile}, but it'd be a change I'd suggest.

  74. I have shopped at both stores and I find them disorganized and messy. I would like to see them cleaner. But I love the bargains.

  75. I like TJ Maxx and Marshalls for the exact reason you outlined: you never know what you're going to get! I like periodically popping in and seeing if there's just an unbelievable deal.

  76. What a cute outfit that sassy little gal has on! I'm going to need a new wardrobe once this baby comes and would like that wardrobe to be free LOL And you know what? I've never been to marshall's so I'd love to go have a fun shopping spree on them.

  77. I haven't gone to either TJ Maxx or Marshall's in the past few years due to having 2 little ones who make the search feel very difficult at times. But with a gift card, I'd leave them with my husband and go. Thanks for the chance!
