How to Shop at T.J Maxx

Yes, it’s spelled with two X-es! (You learn something new every day)

Recently, I spent a spring shopping spree on the store…

And I have to admit, with reluctancy.

From past experiences, I know that if you’re not careful, their stuff can fall apart after one wash.

But today I found tricks that helped me find a bunch of cute clothes!

Here are some handy hints:

1) Try everything on.   T.J Maxx carries a lot of different brands, and your size can vary upon which it is. Also, the clothes can very easily be switched onto a different hanger. In fact, I recommend this tip to anyone shopping anywhere.

2) Inspect your clothes carefully.   Before buying from T.J Maxx, inspect each clothing article you plan to purchase. I was about to try on an irresistably cute turquoise dress, when I noticed a small stain on the front. If you encounter this, don’t even go there! I’m telling you, with our luck it’ll fit and there’s no more of your size. Put the hanger down.

3) Check everywhere in your section.   This usually applies to any shopping place without saying, but I want to stress the importance of this at T.J Maxx. Unfortunately, sometimes the clothes can be disorganized, it’s not like “I’m looking for a retro-y sweater, and that style is in aisle blah-blah-blah”. No. You have to dig deep to find buried treasure!

4)Have lots of time on your hands.   If you are looking for a quick, 30 minute splurge, don’t come here. Taking the time to find the true quality of a product at T.J Maxx is EXTREMELY important! If you are in a rush it’s easy to overlook an important thread hanging loose or a seemingly insignifigant stain.

Have fun, Maxxinistas!
