My Favorite Store

My favorite place to shop in the whole wide world is Marshalls with T.J.Maxx in a close second with Target, a dismal third place.

And since this is the first time I've ever ranked my stores of choice, I feel like Chick Fil A needs to be on the trophy platform too.

So, let's just say when I swing by and grab a sweet tea, put my purse in a cart and walk around Marshalls or T.J. Maxx for half an hour, it's my favorite date. With myself.

It's my more for less gettin' place.

TJMaxx/Marshall's sent me a $50 gift card to shop with...I think I'm going to surprise my hubby with a gift. We usually don't shop much for each other, but we have both been known to break all the rules.

I think he'd like a little of this and that:
For Him - SweatersFor Him - Personal CareFor Him - Tools

What's your favorite store?

You do "Little House Christmas", too, eh? We are celebrating our 2nd annual. It's all how you market it, right? This would be fun, though, to get the kiddos some clothes they need. Everyone's still growing.

laura said...

tj maxx and marshalls have always been a little overwhelming to me. i've been a die-hard target fan. but as i watch my family grow and my budget begin to spiral out of control, i've actually just been thinking that maybe i need to give them a second chance!! this would be a GREAT way to kick start my new shopping habit!!

Oh, what a fun and wonderful giveaway! I could get lost in those stores for HOURS! :)
And since we all know that Mama usually gets stuff for everyone else and nothing for herself, I'll be honest and say that if I win, I'm NOT going to use it for anyone but ME! Ummm, yeah, right. ;) However, Mama could definitely use some new threads.
Thanks for the chance to win! :)

It would be so awesome to win this! I especially love TJ Maxx. I'd have to travel a couple of hours to the closest Marshall's but I'm sure it would be worth it if you think it's better than TJ Maxx!

Amy Kinser said...

I discovered both of these stores about twenty plus years ago and have loved them ever since. TJ Maxx is probably my number 1 and then Marshalls.

I love everything that I can shop for there. From housewares that are beautiful and greatly priced, to clothes, toys, and just odds and ends, I could spend hours just taking my time (minus kids) looking around.

I have even put TJ Maxx on my Christmas list for my husband and my mom. It just tells them to go there, look around and they will find all kinds of goodies to put under the tree for me.

Thanks...

I would love to win this. I love their Home Goods store. We have a nice big one near us.

Chick Hatchers said...

You are SO lucky to have opportunity to shop with, well, yourself! I was at Aldi today with my 3. At the checkout, still insisting we were NOT buying the doll my 6yo was still carrying around (after being told 800 times that I was NOT buying it), my 3yo picked up a jar of pasta sauce to put on the conveyer belt. Yep. Dropped it. Nope, I was THIS close to catching it - but didn't. After making sure she was safe and then apologizing to the checkout clerk, I turned to 6yo and took the doll from her, once again saying I was not buying it. Turned back around to the 3yo and 9yo, asked 9yo to bring 3yo around to me (the LONG way to avoid all the broken glass and mess). Finished unloading the cart and noticed that upset 6yo was GONE. Just GONE. She took off.

Sigh.

Everything worked out. But I am SO ready to go shopping without kids.

That is where I told my husband to shop for me this year! (He needs very direct hints like that... actually, I often have to pick up the things myself :). We dont' spend very much on each other, saving it for the kids, but I know he can find something great without spending much at those two stores.

Even better to shop it with a free gift card!!
