    By the way, I spent $130 at Ross the other day (which is CONSIDERABLY more than I normally spend) but I got a sweater, two jeans, a pair of trousers, and two pairs of shoes. You can't beat that.

    I've never had luck at Ross, TJ Maxx, or Marshall's, but I love Loehmann's and Filene's Basement. I've seen $600 Marc Jacobs bags marked down to $250-300 at Loehmann's. I also saw a $1200 Michael Kors blazer at Filene's Basement marked down to $150.

    I have to be in a great mood to shop at Ross. Their aisles are so crammed and bitches have to block them with their shopping carts so you have to come back to that one section of pants you want to look at when the bitch is gone. The lines are horrendous 99% of the time and the cashiers don't give a rat's ass. I do like to look for housewares and linens there and TJ Maxx. I got an awesome, plush king size comforter that I looove for $50.

    oh god, I thought it was just me. The shopping cart in the aisle drives me crazy. And there's usually a few kids attached to it . . .

    I do love Marshalls and I found my favorite coat at Ross's for $35.

    My mom tells me really good things about TJ Maxx. Does anyone know more about it? She told me that's where she's taking me shopping if I get a dorm in college.

    I don't always like Ross. It seems unorganized to me but then again, I've only been to one in my area. Everytime I go there and I find something cute, I can't find it in my size because they don't stock that many sizes. And the people who work there barely help at all.

    I lurves my TJMaxx. A friend dragged me to a Ross in San Francisco a couple of years ago - I was surprisingly unimpressed, given the time I spend as a pseudo-professional shopper. I do spend way too much time at Marshalls and TJM.

    TJMaxx and Marshalls are owned by TJX out of Boston, and they carry nearly the same exact merchandise. Marshall's has larger shoe and junior departments, and TJ's have larger accessories department (purses, body & bath, luggage, flat irons, blow dryers, etc.), and home departments.

    They both have terrific buys for the dorm, and I just saw that TJ's had loads of American Eagle (I bought all of my son's school clothes there, including a Hurley backpack for $25, the same one was at the mall for $50).

    Also, if you see something you like, you need to get it, because it's rarely there the next time you go back.

    Thanks for the info. My mom said the stuff there is really cheap and just like the stuff I buy at the mall. I'm a big mall shopper and if I see something I like, I don't look around for a good price usually. She's trying to teach me how to save money.

    My mom bought some stuff from TJ for around the house and it looks really good. I'm definitely going to check it out.

    "Homegoods" is also a TJX store - it's a TJMaxx without the clothes and shoes. Lots of lamps, furniture, knick-knacks, doodads, decor.

    Thanks so much for all the info Brookie. Although, if I go to TJ Maxx, I will not be leaving without some clothes or shoes.

    Love Homegoods!! Have you been to a "Maxx n' More"? That's a TJMaxx and a Homegoods combined, wonderful!! We have 3 in our area, and 2 of them are ginormous! I love going there for holiday decorations, very unique stuff, cheap!

    That's the thing! Some stores are nicer than others. My mom is obsessed with TJ Maxx and the like, and always hounds me to go in there. The Ross near us is a complete mess though, and when I do find something I like there's always a hole or tear in it. TJ Maxx is much better quality I've found and has really cool stuff for the house.

    Actually before the summer I bought this brown suede Lucky satchel at TJ Maxx for $30, a few days later I found it in a department store for like $150. I was very happy with my purchase!
