The first time I visited a TJ Maxx store, I was a little overwhelmed. I had no idea what to expect or what kinds of things I would find. I certainly didn’t expect to become a convert, but I walked in looking for a pair of yoga pants and walked out with a cart full of items I didn't know I needed. Now, I show all the signs I'm a TJ Maxx mom, and I have a feeling I'm not alone.
For the uninitiated, TJ Maxx is pretty much what would happen if a department store and Target had a baby. They have the brands you might expect at a department store, but they also have carts, which makes shopping easier when you have a baby or toddler in tow. Not to mention lower prices than you probably expect.
For me, the best part of TJ Maxx are the deals. It tells you right on the price tag how their price compares with other stores, so I get a little adrenaline burst when I realize how much money I'm saving. And the deals are real, not just markdowns to make you feel good. When I’ve looked online to see how their prices compare, they almost always have the best price I can find. As someone who loathes paying full price for anything, I simply fell in love. Racks upon racks of clothes for me, a wide selection of baby clothes, muslin swaddle blankets, shoes, a new coat for my son, dishes, and even makeup — all on sale.
So yeah, now I ’m totally a TJ Maxx Mom, and I’m not ashamed to admit it. I show all of the signs of a true Maxxinsta, including the following:
