CLOSED ~ Marshalls & TJ Maxx "Back to Campus" Giveaway

It's that time of year again when college students are going "Back to Campus". Now I remember when I was going to college. Even back then, it was expensive to get all the supplies I needed. I would do smart shopping and shop at places like Marshalls and T.J. Maxx to find quality items at great prices.

Nowadays, college students can still find cool deals on dorm must-haves at T.J.Maxx and Marshalls. Why spend more money when you don't have to? You can find fantastic items

I looked around the sites and found some really cool ideas for dorm rooms. I wish they had stuff like this when I was going to college. And these great finds are trendy, in style and up to 60 percent less than specialty stores. I have no idea why anyone would buy merchandise for full price when you can get it for up to 60% less.

At T.J.Maxx and Marshalls you can buy everything you need for a cool dorm bedroom. You can find coordinating bed spreads, sheets and pillows. And don't forget the cool accessories like accent pillows, a bean bags, rugs, matching laundry hamper, tool sets, ironing boards and more.

I loved all the cool items they had for the student "office". Accessories like decorative lamps, colorful bulletin boards and desktop organizers can be found in both stores. For all nighters in the library, pack laptops in soft sided decorative cases.

Whether your style is “Preppy Americana” or “Modern Minimalistic Chic” – T.J. Maxx and Marshalls have an amazing selection that will suite any student’s style! Beginning July 5th, both stores will be stocked with these must-haves and more for the dorm.

And whether or not you have a student going away to college or just love shopping, you can go to T.J.Maxx or Marshalls with your very own $25 gift card! Yes, my dear readers, there is one up for grabs. Did you know that you can use the cards interchangeably at both stores? That is such a plus!! So you can use it at either store!! YAY!

Mandatory Entry

Tell me about a great deal that you have found at T.J.Maxx or Marshalls. I want to know!! If you have never shopped at a T.J.Maxx or Marshalls, head over to the sites and tell me something you learned.

  23. I hate buying jeans, I can't find my size, they are ugly, and they are expensive. But I love going to Marshal's to buy them, I always find exactly what I am looking for at a reasonable price and the best part is they are name brands that aren't actually ugly or look pre-worn.
