Adventures In Clearance Shopping: T.J. Maxx Edition

Howdy all!  I am trying to post more often to this blog so bare with me.  Some posts are going to be works of genius, but this isn’t one of them.  This post is a simple one.  A post about a girl who decided to do some spontaneous clearance shopping at one of my favorite stores:  T.J. Maxx.

There are definitely some pros and cons to clearance shopping.  Con:  Clearance shopping takes a lot of time and effort.  Pro:  You can find some GREAT deals and save some serious cash.  I happened to find two GREAT deals on my venture to T.J. Maxx in clearanceland that I would love to share with you all!

The first was a blue and black checkered number.  ImageWhat girl doesn’t need a Cosby sweater?  I can pair it with my skinny jeans that currently don’t fit at the moment (damn carbs) or my hypothetical black jeans that I don’t even own.  IMAG0527It really doesn’t matter if I don’t have pants to wear with it because I got it for…wait for it…on clearance for  $3.00. Yes please!

My next purchase came at the end of my shopping trip.  I happened upon a last chance clearance rack which looked very much “rode hard and put away wet” (if you catch my drift…wink...wink).  IMAG0525_1Buried in this ravaged rack of clothes was my best find in ages:  an adorable sweater dress.  Though a tad too short for me and my derriere to wear as a simple dress, I could still rock it as a top with the aforementioned ill fitting skinny jeans.  The price you ask?  A very affordable dollar.  One dollar!!!  Now that is one heck of a steal.

Once again, thank you so much for stopping by and please feel free to share any amazing deals you have found when clearance shopping/thrift store shopping/couponing, etc.!

  1. You are skinny lady! If those skinny jeans don’t fit, the check to make sure you didn’t accidentally pick them up from the children’s department. Suggestion for next blog – how to overcome aversion to diving into clearance piles to find treasure. You are a brave one.

  2. Great finds. You’re a girl after my own heart. I just picked up a couple of tank tops at Walmart for $2 each on clearance. I needed something for my Zumba class and didn’t want to spend a lot. Last week I purchased 7 very nice tops at SteinMart for under $70 because they had an addition 50% off red tag coupon! love a bargain!

  3. I love what you found! I found a nice fall dress and a couple of t-shirts that could be worn in this coming Spring and Summer at Kohl’s for 80 and 90% off. I was so ecstatic, I showed my daughters the dress, they think it is still in fashion enough to wear this summer to my 40th high school reunion! It was $5. I like your sweater and sweater dress, great buys and I know next winter it will be fun to bring them out again! Smiles, Robin

  4. If only I could find the art supplies I want for those prices! P.s. I know this comment belongs on a different post, but I watched the documentary on netflix, I’ve been putting it off for a long time, but it was fascinating. Good tip!
