Essential HomeGoods Saving Tips
1. Keep a Measurement Book
One thing that will save you a lot of money and time is to keep a measurement book handy. If you find something and wonder whether or not it will fit in your space, you may choose to wait until you’ve had a chance to measure the area. Unfortunately, the item probably won’t be there when you go back. Whatever room you’re shopping for, make sure you know the measurements of each area.
2. Shop in the Mornings
The absolute best time to shop for deals is in the mornings. Interior designers love HomeGoods and often snatch up many of the best deals. In some cases, stores get new merchandise daily. If you hit the store early in the morning, you’re more apt to find the best selection of items. If you’ve ever shopped at HomeGoods, and been disappointed by the selection, it may have been because all the good stuff had been snatched up.
3. Don’t Wait
See something you love? Pull the trigger. Items do not last long at HomeGoods. As mentioned above, interior designers love this store and are more than happy to grab that item. If you at all think it’s something that will look good in your home, and really like the item, grab it. It’s better to grab it and need to give it away than to miss out on something that could look amazing in your home.
4. Get a Discount on Damaged Items
A lot of stock goes in and out of HomeGoods, this means that you want to be on the lookout for items that might need a little love. For example, a scratch on a piece of wood furniture can easily be covered with a stain marker. If you see something you love that has a bit of damage, ask for a discount. HomeGoods is usually happy to lower the price so that the item sells.
5. Download the App
There’s a HomeGoods app that will allow you to choose your store and see new items that are coming into the store. If you’re always wondering what’s new, this is a great app to download. It’s also a great way to see what you might want to buy if you’ve not got a lot of time to shop.
6. Remember the Power of Spray Paint
Ever see something that you love the shape or style of, but hate the color? Grab it! You can use spray paint on almost any surface. This allows you to find items and make them your own. You can even create a collection from items that don’t seem to go together by simply painting them all the same color. You can find spray paint in every color imaginable.
7. Keep Your Style in Mind
It can be overwhelming to shop at HomeGoods. You may find several items you love, but do they work in your home? We all have a style or a new style in mind. Make sure the items you’re buying are going to be a great fit. If you’re buying something extremely modern and your home is rustic country, it’s not going to work.
8. Get the TJX Credit Card
Another great tip is to get the TJX credit card. This will allow you to earn $10 for every $200 spent. There are also credit card member exclusive deals from time to time. The key is to make sure you pay your balance off each month. Many store credit cards carry a huge interest rate that will quickly negate any savings you scored.
9. Grab Gifts for Less Than $10
There are items throughout HomeGoods that make great gifts for the holidays. You can find hand-blown glass items from Italy for less than ten-dollars. You can also find great gifts in the stationary aisle. There’s also candles and discounted brand name toys. This is a great place for stocking your gift closet.
10. Check the Entire Store
You don’t want to limit yourself to one section. You may look throughout the store and find that something meant for something else would work perfect for your needs. For example, you might find glass canisters in the kitchen section that would be beautiful in your bathroom for holding cotton balls and other small items.
11. Shop on a Weekday
Most people shop HomeGoods on the weekends. This means that you’ll have a much better chance of finding great deals during the week. Remember to also shop early in the day so that you beat the interior designers to the deals.
12. Look for Seasonal Items EARLY
Last, but not least, if you’re looking for seasonal items, be sure to shop early. This means shopping for Halloween items in August, Christmas items in September, Valentine’s Day items in December, etc. These items will go fast. If you’re in the store shopping for something else and see them putting out the next season’s stock, check it out.
HomeGoods has so many awesome items and it’s like a treasure hunt each time you enter the store. If you want the best selection and prices, there are some tips you can use.
Whether you shop early in the day on a weekday or get creative, you can find the items you need without overspending. Best of all, you can help ensure that you pass on items that you don’t need or won’t fit in your space.
