Seven Secrets for Shopping TJX Stores

After working at HomeGoods for sometime now, I feel like I've picked up a few tips and tricks for any TJX store. Here are a few tips to make shopping at HomeGoods, Tjmaxx, or Marshalls easy as pie!

1. ALWAYS Check Clearance

Sometimes we will mark down products that are in the store but we might get that exact product the following week. It might be only a dollar difference but it's nothing different! Most the times things are clearance because they've been in the store longer or there may be some damage to the product. If you see an employee marking items in your section, ask for a markdown check on your items. Check first!

2. Shop Later

I've worked morning and night shifts and I suggest shopping later in the day or night. The trucks come in the morning and we start flowing for the rest of the day. New things are mostly out by the nighttime, or take a peak early in the morning! I highly suggest shopping on the weekdays, you have more options and the store is more full!

3. STOP Looking for that one Item

A lot of people come to HomeGoods looking for one item. But the TJX stores is not the place to look for one particular item just because you're not always guaranteed it's there.

4. Check Other Locations

Sometimes going into different stores gives you different items you might not find in the TJX store closet to you. If we had an item a week ago it's better to check if the store a few towns over received it or still has it!

5. January and July

When the seasons switch and the store is being rearranged that's when most things are marked down. For example the end of July they begin marking down all things summer to move it and make room for the new merchandise heading into fall.

6. Get the Credit Card

If you shop at the TJX stores often or you make a large purchase, for example on furniture, you may want to sign up for theTJX Rewards Card. By signing up, you’ll receive a 10% off on your first purchase and then a $10 rewards certificates for every 1,000 points you earn.

7. Seasonal Early

Shop our seasonal goods early. We'll receive things quite early but it can be picked over when you come looking for fall things the last week of September. However, usually the day of or after everything is marked down, for example Easter or Valentine's Day those things are marked down the day of usually.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
