Friday Five- My Love For TJ Maxx

I haven't done a Friday Five in as long as I can remember, but decided to give it a go this week. 
I am sure this is a crazy question, but have you been into TJ Maxx, lately?! So many things to buy in that store, I have to tell myself "NO" to at least half of the things I want to buy. Although I usually bypass the clothing section (for my husband's sanity) when I go in, I like to take my time and see everything I possibly can. Everything from purses to shoes, home decor to dog accessories/toys. 
Check out my purchases from just last week!

1. Picture Frames
I can always count on good ole TJ Maxx to pull through when I am looking for some fun new friends, and last week was no disappointment. I bought these frames to put in my office for $6 and $7. What a steal! 

2. Colorful Drinking Glasses
These glasses just scream "SUMMER!" I can't wait for some wonderful weather to have a relaxing day sitting on the patio and sipping out of these bad boys. Not that I needed anymore drinking glasses, but for only $10 I just couldn't pass them up. This purchase definitely elicited the eye roll from my husband, but I don't even care.

3. Dog Bowl
This fun little dog bowl was mine the second I saw it! Forget that it might be slightly too small for daily use, it's perfect for post-run ice cubes and when I spoil Lucy with wet dog food occasionally. The best part: it has a rubber bottom to minimize slippy across the kitchen floor, and it was only $4.

4. Pig Potpourri Holder
How cute is this pig, seriously? I'm not usually one to purchase animal figurines, but the hearts did it for me this time. The potpourri smells pretty good, but I have a feeling this little guy will be sticking around much longer than the potpourri lasts.

5. Sports Bras
Oh my gosh, TJ has a huuugee selection of sports bras right now! I snagged one of these off the rack because of its $10 price tag, but quickly realized that wasn't all I liked about it. These are so soft and so comfortable! I ended up going back for one in every color I could find. Lucky for my wallet, they only had three colors. 

I also was able to find some great yoga pants while I was there, but those didn't seem exciting enough to share. Their workout section right now is to die for, I had to get out of there while I still had some money.

Have you been scoring any great finds at TJ Maxx, Marshalls, or Home Goods lately?
What are your favorite things to shop for while you're there?

In other news, I am hoping to have some fun posts ready for you guys next week!

Happy Friday!


  1. Yes, I bribe myself to go to the dentist with a promise of a HomeGoods visit afterwards :) Looks like you found some good stuff!

  2. My kind of girl! I love TJMaxx, it's like a treasure hunt!

  3. Great finds! I haven't been in to TJ Maxx in a while, but after seeing your great finds, I think I need to head there soon! I could use some new sports bras--and I love those colors :)
