TJ Maxx is so my bitch

I have the skills when it comes to this store (and Marshalls as well)

I managed to snag:
a BCBG hand bag for $20 on clearance (Original price of $100)
a red BCBG hoodie for $29.99 (Original price of $160)
and a pair of tan Guess by Marciano Cowboy boots (suede) for $39.99 (Original price not listed. tag said compare at $75...but I've seen Guess boots like these for as much as $175)...ok, I was wrong, found this on Ebay...which is exactly what I got (just in a smaller size) and claims they are worth $225.

SCORE!

Total price even after tax was under $95
Which isn't bad considering the 3 designer items.


*glee*
I've been looking for some spiffy cowboy boots for a while. The bag just snuck up on me, but it was too good to give up.

hrm.
Be patient. Sometimes you have to go back to find what you are looking for.
The kep the sizes pretty well in order, but check the size above and below what you normally wear, mostly because no one sizes things the same.

I wear size 7 shoes, but for certain things I can fit into either a 6.5 or an 8.

When it comes to clothing, if you don't like it, don't get it just because it's a designer item.

It's also a pretty good idea to know your fabrics. They had a cashmere on sale for $50, but it wasn't melt on your skin soft.

I think my being jewish also helps me spot bargains. *grin*
Heck, I wish there were more people in Upstate NY I could shop with...
