TJ Maxx and Marshalls Children’s Costumes are very affordable #giveaway

I know I’ve written about going to Boston a few times but I’m very grateful for TJX (Marshalls and TJ Maxx) for inviting me to their Mom Bloggers Event. I also want to share all that fun with you. While I was there, I purchased a Halloween costume for my daughter for 15.00. It is a purple fairy costume that came with a So I know that they start very low. I’m not sure how high they go but I know that TJMaxx and Marshalls are excellent at keeping costs down because of how they purchase their high quality materials.

Just an FYI…

They do purchase in season designer clothing, purses, accessories, and retail items.

They purchase the same stuff you can find at Macy’s, Gucci, and Guess for much less and share the discounts with us.

They have less than 15 percent that is defective, and by defective I mean, a manufactured defect that is not detectable to the naked eye. The manufacturer just decided it was slightly less than perfect.

IMG_1220 IMG_1221 Since Halloween is a ton of fun for me I asked if I could host a giveaway. I know you can find one and still have money left over; and rumor is that if you wait until the day of Halloween, that they go on SUPER DUPER clearance on that day; instead of the day after. I know that was the longest run on sentence in the history of Mom Start. ;-)
