Last week, I got to hang out with Kelly and the gang from New Jersey’s flagship newspaper, The Star Ledger at the Marshalls store in Secaucus, NJ. Kelly wrote a front page piece about me and the site for the newspaper (okay, totally amazing, who would have thought when I arrived from Minneapolis at Newark International for my first day of college that I would end up on the cover of the state’s newspaper?) and then followed me to one of my FAVORITE shopping spots, Marshalls. During the shoot, I shared a few of my general shopping tips, but here are some great tips specific to Marshalls.
Three Things to Buy at Your Local Marshalls
- Sheets. Marshalls (and its sister store TJ Maxx) is pretty much the best place to purchase high thread count sheet sets for under $40.00. During our shoot, I bought a 450 thread count Queen sheet set for $30, that is virtually the same sheet set as the Charter Club line at Macys. The difference? About $30.
- Undergarments. In the video I held up a pair of butt enhancing underwear, but you can find plenty of great “regular” undergarments from big brands like Calvin Klein, Spanx, Wacoal, for 50% off or more. Marshalls is a particular great place to pick up an old school undergarments, like pantyhose, full slips and girdles.
- Handbags. About two months ago, I saw this Steve Madden handbag at Macys for $68.00. The next day, I went into the Secaucus Marshalls and saw the same handbag for $29.99, which is even less than its current sale price. This isn’t the first time that I’ve seen something at Marshalls at the same time it’s at a department store.
