It's no secret that T.J. Maxx offers discounted prices for a variety of products, from shoes to designer purses and tops. However, there are other items that the chain frequently stocks, and you might be surprised at how cheap some of these items are in comparison to other stores. Just one more reason to stop by this addictive retailer, am I right? And don't worry, this isn't a sponsored article or anything. It's simply good advice from budget bloggers and frequent T.J.

As weird as it may sound, I've actually had hair stylists tell me to head to T.J. Maxx for great prices on quality hair products. Whether you're looking for serums, conditioners, brushes, towels, or whatever your hair care regime calls for, check out this store's options before heading to a beauty retailer or even Walmart.

Food Items and Coffee
Who thinks about stopping by T.J. Maxx to grab a bag of kettle corn or some olive oil? Probably not most people, but the chain actually sells many different food items, as well as bags of quality coffee. Shop for packages of sugary sweets or mixers for whatever alcoholic beverage you've been craving. Obviously, you won't be able to do all of your grocery shopping, but you can check a couple of items off your shopping list after you browse the store's other sections.
Blankets and Throws
The other day, I found almost the exact same blanket I bought for $10 at T.J. Maxx at another store for $25. Every time I visit, T.J. Maxx has a pretty impressive selection of super cozy blankets in a variety of sizes. What's not to love about fuzzy throws at an amazing price?
Cheap (But Reasonably Sturdy) Tote Bags
As you head to the store's checkout, take note of the plastic tote bag section that adorns the wall nearby. You can snag a seasonal tote for just $0.99, and it's a great way to do your part in taking care of the environment. Utilizing reusable bags reduces waste, and you'll probably find more than a few occasions where a cute but cheap tote comes in handy.
