I am thankful for my mom for so many things....one of them is introducing me to all of her shopping secrets, like shopping at
T.J.Maxx! Do you have any fond memories of shopping with mom?

My mom has given me advice on many things, most of them right when I was leaving for college.

I am lucky because my mom taught me to do the same thing. She taught me to only purchase expenisve clothing if you can wear it over and over and over again (like jeans). She is a shopping maven...she tears through stores finding the best deals and luckily she likes to buy for me so I don't have to try on clothes in the changing rooms which ALWAYYYYS have the worst lighting and I swear they have fat mirrors.

I still love to go shopping with my mom! She always finds a great sale and always advises me in my purchasing decisions :)

My mom always said that retail is for suckers...and I totally agree!!! I'm a big bargain shopper and will teach my kids the same thing ;)

Who doesn't love shopping with mom?

Even now, shopping with my mom is something I love to do :)

My favorite memories are of back to school shopping. It was the best. My sister and mom and I would go shop to shop and the day would culminate with a girls lunch which was always a great time. My mom is a big bargain shopper and always loved to get a deal -- I have carried those habits with me!

Also a big fan of TJ Maxx and Marshall's. I love regular shopping malls too though :) Just depends on my mood I guess.
