Let's Go Bargain Shopping: TJ Maxx

I love bargain shopping. I don't know when I last bought something that was full-price (except maybe diapers or something like that). And the thrill of the hunt is half the fun. However, since my now near-constant shopping companion is a 2.5 year old, visiting dingy, crowded places like TJ Maxx has lost some of its appeal. Nevertheless, we stopped in this weekend and got some great deals. First up is this lovely book I got for . . . er . . . my niece. Yeah, that's it. For my niece. Regular price is $9, TJ price is $6. (They have all four of these books for those of you who are interested. Not that I am interested. Not at all.).

I got some very cute Liz Claiborne PJ's, similar to these, but cuter. Tag price was $64, TJ price was $10 on clearance.

Awesome box of four Melissa & Doug puzzles: tag price $12, TJ price $6. Now please pray that these keep my child occupied for at least some small part of our upcoming road trip.

I got my husband two of these awesome Chaps Ralph Lauren short-sleeved button downs. The one pictured is still in the regular stores! Tag price $40, TJ price $10.

Love the Karen Katz books. This one has a tag price of $7, but a TJ price of $4.

Happy shopping, and let me know about your TJ finds!

P.S. to Jill: you are the world's greatest bargain shopper ever, and this post is a tribute to you. I'm thinking about you today and praying for your family. XOOXOXOXOOXOXXOOXOXOX

I wish I had the patience to bargain shop ! I have so many friends that find the best deals, but I'm too impatient.

I love bargain shopping!!! You got some great deals!!! This morning, I shopped at Restoration Hardware, this location is closing so I managed to get a shower curtain, two bath mats, and a gallon of paint for under $50.00. I would have cost me over @220.00 plus tax if I had gotten them full price. I love a good deal!

I had no idea you could get Edward and Bella cheaper! Thanks for the deals, TJ Maxx is right around the corner...guess I will be going there today.

Darnit! The closest one is on the other side of town. Do you ever go to Tuesday Morning? One just opened close by and I've never been to one.

I feel I have to be in the mood for trips to TJ Maxx; sometimes it's fabulous and sometimes I just can't be bothered.
You got some great deals!

I love TJ Maxx, do you have a Home Goods by you? I think they are part of TJ Maxx and not Marshalls but they are a huge bargain store and so dangerous to go in.

My daughter loves those Karen Katz books and Melissa and Doug puzzles are great.
