It's time for a SPENDERVENTION!

ME - I'm the type of girl (ahem - woman) who expects to get the MOST for her money. That being said, I also like to have the VERY BEST. I've never been and never will be a schlock-shopper. It's not necessarily that I have to have brand names on everything, but I expect quality and quite often the brand names produce a better quality of merchandise. Who am I kidding? I LIKE the good stuff.


I have a girlfriend who's name I won't mention (*cough*Sandy*cough*) who TRULY believed that if you spent MORE on an item, that it was BETTER. She wouldn't step foot into an Off-Price retailer or discount store (but she would shop sales at the Mall stores when she was short of cash). Me on the other hand, I swear that the salespeople know me by name in my favorite stores (hey, I'm not embarrassed - I get the heads up on the best deals because of it).


We DO go shopping together, but it's always an interesting affair (with each of us bored at the other's shopping "style"). I knew that it was time for a SPENDERVENTION, because she doesn't have the extra money to be throwing away at those HIGH PRICED PALM BEACH stores.

OK, girlfriend - I'm going to TEACH YOU how you can save up to 50%-70% off on the SAME MERCHANDISE as in your favorite stores. You're coming with me and you're liking it I told her. Once again, she reluctantly came with me - but this time I was FORCED to show her how much she would be saving. I KNOW what she likes (she's like me - she likes THE GOOD STUFF). So, we went to my favorite stores T.J. Maxx and Marshall's - the two TOP Off-Priced retailers around.


It was Sunday at 3:00 PM. BAD MOVE ON MY PART (I should know better). We walked into TJ Maxx and it was a bit disorganized, enough so that she could say "I told you so" to me. That was UNTIL......we saw them. On the clearance rack calling BOTH of our names was a pair of Kate Spade heels in orange and fuscia. We HAD to try them on (yes there were pairs in BOTH of our sizes). These shoes that are regularly close to $300 a pair, were marked down to under $100. Then it was on the the Lilly Pulitzer polo shirts for under $30. From that point on, there was NO stopping her. She even asked me if there was more of the same at Marshall's.


I laughed and said - LET'S GO FIND OUT!! If you hadn't figured it out, we're both shoe-a-holics and Marshall's had a MEGA shoe department, with LOTS of brand names including COACH for 50% off. At the end of the day, I deemed the Spendervention a SUCCESS. Now I'm not saying that she won't still go to the Mall to shop (she's just not the stopping cold turkey type), but I KNOW that she'll be ducking into TJ Maxx and Marshall's to check out what they have BEFORE she spends the BIG BUCKS!

If you think YOU need a Spendervention of your own, Champagne Living and TJX is giving ONE of our readers a $25.00 T.J. Maxx gift card!!

My sister's in desperate need of a spendervention - I keep telling her she can find great, high-end-quality clothes and accessories at stores like TJ Maxx and Marshalls, but a gift card might be what it takes to get her to go!

love to find deals and tend to go online this would help me get some new clothes and update

Kari said...

I have never shopped at T.J. Maxx, even though my mother-in-law keeps telling me about all the great deals she finds there. I guess I could use a "spendervention" to finally try it for myself. Thanks.

My teen-aged daughter is learning to be a bargain-shopper, but I'd like to offer her this prize, before she needs a "SPENDERVENTION!"

There are a lot of things in transition in my life right now, and I need a "spendervention" to lose my old shop til I drop ways and become more bargain-conscious.

Anonymous said...

I'm not too bad when it comes to spending...but I do love to shop. Sometimes my husband thinks it's too much. But when I took him to T.J. Maxx with me to get my dress for my college graduation and he saw what a great deal I got! ;)...well he's been a little easier on me since then (and very proud of me!).

joannaonthelake said...

Honestly, I love to give my husband a SPENDERVENTION!! We have 3 young children and all our $$$ goes to making sure their needs are met. My husband is so good looking, but really, his clothes are from like the 80's, we need to get him some new cool updates looks so it will better reflect the modern man that he truly is! He would never spend money on himself when there are so many other items we need for our family so this would be a special treat just for him! He, money goes a loooong way at TJMaxx, and we have one very close to where we live! Thanks so much for the chance to enter.

My daughter needs one. She is constantly buying clothes. Last time I bought Clothes was about 2 years ago.

foamfan said...

A relative is bad about buying blouses or shoes at a department store (she shops when bored--a big no-no). Then, instead of realizing that it doesn't fit or she didn't need it -- she NEVER returns stuff to the store -- she tries to stick me with the stuff, that is NOT my taste, at all!! Aarrgh!!
(And I'm a no-clutter convert! Double aarrgh!)

I shop every weekend...it's a sport to me. : ) My friends and I make a Sunday ritual out of it, get a bagel for fuel then hit up the stores all day long. This is why I need a Spendervention.

naturegirl said...

I am a very thrifty person and already shop at TJ Maxx, but I have a friend who only shops at department stores and doesn't pay attention to prices. Then she gets a shock when the total comes up at checkout. She definitely needs an intervention.

Tara said...

Easy enough. I have a new found addiction to shoes. It is a new love affair and still extremely fragile, however I need all the support I can get.I am thinking of starting a support group! So I defintiely need a spendervention!

I am on a budget so I definitely need this. With a family of 5 TJ Maxx is a definite for us. They have great quality with even better prices. Thank you for the chance

My husband, daughter, and soon to be son-in-law are all GM employees, and have been laid off forever. Can you say we NEED all the help we can get right now? A TJ Maxx gift card would surely cheer everyone up! Not to mention it's my daughter's favorite place to shop..she knows a great bargain when she sees one!

My mother has been INSANELY stressed lately and spending money up the wazoo because her car is starting to turn into a huge lemon. She's seriously the nicest woman who would do (and does) anything for anyone and always puts other people first, and actually just lent a bunch of money to my grandmother so she could buy a car...then of course my Mom's car started having problems. I just think having a nice free trip to TJ Maxx would help her gain somewhat of a piece of mind back. She deserves it.

I don't know that I need a Spendervention, actually. In fact, I love Marshall's and TJ Maxx and I love the food section in the back of Ross. I get a great box of tea from England back there called "the London Cuppa". I think they have it all three places, but it is hit or miss. You have to search for it. I also buy quality olive oil there.

My fiance/ future husband needs a spendervention. He's exactly like your friend. As soon as we walk into a TJMaxx, Ross, or even a thrift store, his nose turns up. He just doesn't get that its the same clothes but wayyyyy cheaper. I even pointed out a Tommy Hilfiger shirt in our local thrift store for a $1 and he "declined" it because we were in a thrift store. The funny thing is that I coupon ALOT and he doesn't mind me saving money on food and other household items, just not his clothes!

My sis also needs a spendervention, as when she graduated from college, she let one of the class advisors talk her into buying a new "interview suit" at the mall, for the job fair that was to be held at the school.

I would like to give my sister a spendervention to break her from the high-end stores and boutiques that she can't really afford anymore and show her that she can buy the styles she likes for a reasonable price - thanks!

birthday money..need to spend on bills...but

heather said...

I need a spendervention because I have champagne taste on a shoestring budget! I wish my TJ's had lilly polo's for 30 bucks..I checked today...nada. I am DYING to get a pair of gorgeous coach shoes that I saw there today which I still cannot afford...hence asking for the gift card, if I got 25 bucks off with the card, they'd just jump into my shopping cart on their own and there would be nothing that you or I could do about it. Here's to hoping shoes learn to jump on their own!

heather said...

Ohhh... I didn't post my email. I am the lady who wants the shoes to jump into her cart...give me the spendervention. I am desperate! heatherbean79@gmail.com

naturegirl said...

I'm thrifty, but I have a very unthrifty friend who never pays attention to price tags, and therefore way over spends. She should be shopping at TJ Maxx like I do.

I need a Spendervention because it's time for some new things right about now.

i deserve something for me.

azrosebud said...

my daughter needs a spendervation - she has tons of shoes and clothes - me i hardly ever buy myself new things

Tracy said...

I'm a bedding a holic, I love going to marshalls to get quality bedding at frugal girl pricing! The thing is, getting one set at at time would be smart, but I'll go in there and get multiples! So maybe I'm not saving, but I just can't help myself!

I'm hoping to be able to cut back on work and the only way I know to do that is by spending less.

I'd like to give my sister a spendervention to curb her of her addiction to pricey apparel and show her that she can find the same quality in the merchandise offered at stores like TJ Maxx and Marshall's - thanks!

Linda said...

I would give this to my niece because she tells me what great deals she always gets at TJ Max and she is a deal seeker!

Mia J. said...

I could use a spendervention because my husband has been laid off and I could use a bit of cheering up. This would be great and maybe I could buy myself something pretty...

Beth said...

My sis Lisa needs some cheering up, lost her job last year and just got one two months ago, but I think if she had something NEW it might make her feel better about the job she has.

Amber said...

I need a spendervention because I am on such a tight budget. I know $25 might not seem huge - but it would be a huge treat for me!
Thank you for the giveaway :)

My sister could really use a spendervention - I've seen some of her credit card bills, and she really needs to adjust her spending habits while still maintaining her great style. She'll be glad to know she can do both by shopping at great stores like TJ Maxx, and a gift card would be a terrific incentive to get her to start!

If you looked in my closet, you'd know who needs a Spendervention! Thanks.

I need a Spendervention. I've been out of work since August of last year and I haven't bought anything new for myself since. I'd love to get some new jeans!

love tj max and marshall's..even though i don't have much money to spend

guettel78 said...

I've been trying to convince my sister to change her bad shopping habits for a long time, but it might just take a gift card to kick start her into considering great discount shopping venues like TJ Maxx and Marshalls -- thanks for the chance to win one to begin her spendervention!

i need a spendervention because like your friend.. i can't seem to break away from the expensive brands whether i have the money to spend or not. many times those discount stores are so unorganized i just can't shop there.. maybe this would make me go in and see what they can really offer

Anonymous said...

I could use a spendervention for certain things like tasty looking groceries. I should probably just not shop when I'm hungry. That'd probably help. :)

I'd surprise my sister with a spendervention - in the past she's been reluctant to give up her high-end department stores and shops in favor of discount stores, but a gift card would be a nice incentive to get her to go with me to TJ Maxx or Marshalls!

Amber said...

I need a spendervention to give me a little extra buying power for something I WANT but don't necessarily NEED.

My sister Doreen needs the spendervention so that she can save some money-she's blown tens of thousands on antiques, and now she's disabled and can't work full-time.

jackie1501@frontiernet.net said...

I need it, i"m a cheapo and it shows.

allysona said...

tj max is the best for gift giving ideas

Betty C said...

I need it because I will wait and wait to buy something then suddenly I feel like I have to have it right away. That usually means spending extra. Perhaps if I start shopping at T.J. Maxx I can save some money.
