6. T.J. Maxx/Marshall’s
Both of these stores offer high end name brand clothing at close out prices. Inventory changes often so you want to check in often. If you see something you like, buy it, it may be gone tomorrow. Be sure to check out the clearance section while you are there too.
TIP: Ask an employee what day they restock, typically stores receive new merchandise on Wednesday’s and Thursdays to restock before the weekends, Shopping on a restock day will give you the best selection of new items.
7. Walmart Online
If you need uniforms, Walmart offers some excellent online deals. You can buy uniform shirts, skirts, and pants in bundles specially priced to save you some cash. Plus, you can have the items shipped to a nearby Walmart store for pick up for free.
I love the Girls Uniform Skirts this is my third year in a row to order them, I actually prefer them to larger names like Gymboree and Lands End because they don’t wrinkle, so don’t be afraid to give Walmart a try!
