How Marshalls and TJ Maxx shoppers make fabulous finds is really quite amazing. They are the same women, looking for the same on-trend styles, usually with the same budget constraints as other shoppers. Yet, somehow, they break all the rules of thrifty fashion shopping and win. Maxxinistas are constantly finding designer apparel at a fraction of the retail price and making fabulous finds on shoes, handbags and jewelry. Perhaps there is a lesson to be learned from these smart shoppers.
Thrifty fashion shoppers constantly remind themselves to avoid impulse buying. They practice walking by eye-catching displays and signs for deeply discounted merchandise. They often shop with a list, searching for only the items on the list. They always manage to stay on-target, or even under budget for the month. Shoppers at Marshalls and TJ Maxx are actually more seekers than shoppers. These are the women who are willing to visit the store again and again, look through everything on the racks and counters, and keep a sharp eye peeled for fabulous finds. They look for designer names and quality brands, trusting their own sense of fashion and style.
Again and again, Marshals and TJ Maxx shoppers prove that they are doing something very right. They find Kate Spade handbags for 80% off and baroque pearls from the Gardenia runway collection for $25. They bring home Michael Kors jackets for $30 and Carmen Marc Valvo sweaters for $25. And, through it all, they radiate energy, determination and confidence. They are the few, the seekers, and the ones to score. They leave home with no set agenda, no list, and no preconceived notions. They probably have not checked websites or newspaper advertisements. They simply go forth and conquer the world of thrifty fashion.
If you’ve never shopped at TJ Maxx or Marshalls, give it a try. Plan to spend some time looking through racks and displays, keeping an open mind about what you may or may not purchase. Thrifty fashion shoppers all recognize a real bargain when they see it and smart shoppers know how to make the most of it. You may be a world-class Maxxinista without even knowing it! After you shop, take a photo of your fabulous find to share with other Maxxinistas on Facebook.
