I'm proud to be a Budget Babe Maxxinista! I do hope I win, as I've recently promised not to spend any money on clothing, shoes, accessories, or makeup until January 1st. Gift Cards don't count, though!

I never buy anything full price! =)
I posted this on my entry, but here it is again just in case.

I got this dress in Bali - I bargained it down from $15 to $3!
The sandals are from Tokyo - I really wanted them, but didn't want to pay $40, I waited and came a week later and they were marked down to $10!
The tank I got at Forever 21 on clearance for $4.
The bag at the night market in Seoul!

I love TJ Maxx and know I could definitely find great stuff there (I always do!)

This is quite fun. The last photo is the most recent, taken earlier this month.

The awesomeness of my style (IMO) is that everything I'm wearing in all the photos I got on the cheap. Either sales, thrifting or clothing swaps with friends (leopard bag was a b-day gift). My canvas boots are probably my most favorite footwear I own.

Thanks BB for sharing this and giving us an opportunity to show off! ;D

Wow TJ Maxx is my number one store. There is one very close to my apartment, so I check it out every weekend:

I am a Maxxinista! As a college student, I find my budget to be a bit tight. However, as a savvy shopper I look for deals at various stores, especially TJ Maxx, where I find amazing additions to my wardrobe at cheaper prices than what I ever find in other stores. I've scored deals on shoes and bags from Jessica Simpson, jeans from American Eagle, totes from Liz Claiborne, and coats from Guess. Needless to say, I will be back to shop at TJ Maxx!

My new favorite fall office look- courtesy, of course, of my favorite thrifting haunts and TJ MAXX!

This was so much fun! I loved going through my closet and pulling out my best bargains- I'm a Master Bargain Shopper Ninja, and these are some of my biggest triumphs! Hope you enjoy them like I do :-)
#12 Marley Pugh (Homepage) on 2009-11-04 22:22

I love looking at all my awesome bargains- I didn't pay full price for a single thing I'm wearing in any of those pictures! (Except the kitty cat, but she is priceless!)
#13 Marley Pugh (Homepage) on 2009-11-04 22:27
Thanks so much BB for giving us this opportunity! This contest was so much fun. I wore all three of these looks in the past week and paid great prices for everything!

I had so much fun playing dress up for this contest - I love any excuse to wear the clothes I bought from Europe this summer. Thanks for the awesome opportunity BB!

Why would anyone pay full price for designer names when they can go to TJ MAXX? I very rarely pay over $20 for an item and what makes it even better is that I can go to TJ MAXX for my little mini-maxxinista too!
#16 Mel on 2009-11-05 22:05
I think I am a TJ "Maxxinista"! I get all of my clothes for under $30, usually on sale. Thank you to TJ Maxx for this great competition, and for always offering the cutest clothes at rock-bottom prices!
