15 Actual Thoughts You Have While Wandering Around TJ Maxx

God bless TJ Maxx.


I recently went to TJ Maxx with a friend with the sole purpose of not buying anything. We literally looked at everything, though, and later, I walked out with half a dozen items I was not planning on buying. I'm just glad it was only six from the number of things I saw and liked.

Here were my thoughts as I wandered around TJ Maxx for an hour.

1. "A Michael Kors purse? I wonder how cheap it is..."

2. "Of course I have to check out the clearance section... except that's basically the entire store."

3. "I'm not sure what I would write in a notebook, but these are hella cute."

4. "This may look horrible on me but I'm going to try it on anyway."

5. "Maybe I should just look at some nice clothes for work. You can never have too many business casual clothes..."

6. "These Adidas shoes are so cheap yet still expensive."

7. "$5 makeup... How bad could it be?"

8. "American Eagle shorts for only $15?!"

9. "I can't carry all this stuff."

10. "Do I have a giftcard?"

11. "I want to decorate my house with everything in here."

12. "Oh, look, something I didn't need but buying anyway."

13. "Could I pull this off? It's cheap and looks good on the mannequin..."

14. "Yeah, I could use another phone case."

15. "Yes, I found what I wanted. No, I did not need any of this."

5 Reasons Why Online Shopping Is A Love/Hate Relationship

We all know that receiving packages in the mail is like Christmas, but is it worth it?


I love shopping, but you've got to admit there are some great things about doing it online and some not so great.

1. Shipping, shipping, shipping

Online shopping can be so convenient, especially if that cute shirt you saw in an ad is only available online. But if you only want to order one item, you have to pay, like, $5 (and sometimes more) for shipping! Ridiculous! Also, I don't know about you but sometimes it takes flipping forever to ship and I'm not about that.

2. That feeling when you see the delivery guy walking up your driveway

If you are an avid online shopper you know that nothing compares to when you're home and see the UPS or FedEx truck stop in front of your house and the guy get out with your package.

3. Late night shopping, AKA when you forget what you ordered

When you go to check your email the next morning and see an order confirmation from your 3 A.M. order, yeah you probably should check and see what you ordered, but like what's the fun in that?

4. Online-only items and the selection

Sometimes stores have items that are only available online or exclusive to web shopping, these are nice especially when they are super cute. Also, you tend to have a wider variety of items online than in store because you are ordering probably from the warehouse.

5. Sales

The best thing ever is when there are online-only sales, especially when it includes free shipping. Plus, sometimes the free shipping during sales is faster such as 2-day shipping, which is the best thing ever.

Basically, there are ups and downs to online shopping you just have to decide if it's worth it.
