17 Reasons You Should Be Shopping At TJ Maxx

When I visit my childhood home in South Carolina for the holidays, I always swing by TJ Maxx. From leather handbags to hair tools to lounge chairs, this department store chain is one-stop shopping at its best. Plus, you can score some amazing designer items on clearance.

If you're hoarding gift cards (no judging here!) to hit up post-holiday sales, here are 17 reasons why you should swipe away at TJ Maxx.

  • 1 Those red clearance tags will give you a rush!
  • 2 You can always find the shoes you want in your size.
  • 3 The handbags are arranged by colors, making it easy for you to find that red purse you're searching for.
  • 4 They sell affordable and cute workout gear so you can exercise like a champ.
  • 5 The jewelry counter is always alluring.
  • 6 You won't spot a wall of scarves this impressive anywhere else.
  • 7 Kenneth Cole, Cole Haan and Oscar de la Renta sunglasses for under $20? Take three pairs!
  • 8 You'll discover luxury items like this Hermes watch. Fancy, huh?
  • 9 TJ Maxx is where Betsey Johnson lives... and by that, we mean her wildly printed handbags.
  • 10 This place is a beauty fanatic's dream.
  • 11 You can grab one of the many cute notebooks near the checkout counter to write out your shopping list for next time.
  • 12 You may stumble upon a pair of Christian Louboutin heels. Just watch your back!
  • 13 Fancy fragrance gift sets are selling for low-low prices.
  • 14 Their carry-on luggage offerings simply can't be beat.
  • 15 Here is proof that you can find denim for under 20 bucks.
  • 16 For those girls that can't live without their flat irons, you can get a CHI for cheap.
  • 17 If you get tired from all that shopping, rest up in the housewares aisle. No one will find you under the pillows.

If you rather sit at home in your PJs and shop online...
