I was recently contacted by TJ Maxx about seeing what I could do with $25.00 in their store. Now, they told me that this could be a great Father’s Day challenge. However, when my I told my husband, he said that he did NOT want me to spend any of the money on anything for him — but to get something that I wanted.
Of course, in true “mommy fashion” there was nothing I needed for myself. So, I headed out to see just how far $25.00 could go. When I got to the store, I still thought I’d try to get something for my husband for Father’s Day. I live a little distance from the store, so I wasn’t sure about clothing as if it didn’t fit, I’d have to drive back to the store. So, then I thought about socks and underwear. The prices amazed me — they WERE 50% less than what I’ve paid elsewhere. But, of course, they didn’t have anything in my husband’s size.
So, I looked through …what else….TOYS!!! I never splurge and just get things for my kids for no reason at all. So, I thought that this could be fun. Some of the toys were unfortunately, broken or didn’t work, but after much looking, I found the following: Melissa & Doug Giant Floor Puzzle, 2 Mini Cars from the movie Cars, and a cute Little Tikes pizza set. I even picked up a new bamboo cutting board for me. My total….$27.xx!! I thought that was a pretty good haul too!
