A clearance of the best kind

TKMaxx has always been a favourite haunt of mine; I’m no stranger to a good old rummage.
Though you know you’ve hit the jackpot when you spy a section marked ‘final clearance.’



An area with contents that can only be described as abandoned. In true TKMaxx style the majority of stuff is either damaged or distasteful.

The normal clearance tag is always red; however the final clearance tag is an unmistakable YELLOW ...



Boy did I rummage. I turned over every leaf and surprised even myself with my finds.

The question is what can you get for ten British pounds?

A bag, 2 skirts, a pair of pumps, a Paris print storage case and a lovely scented candle in a keepsake glass jar.



My new bag being my most favourite find, at £3.00 I just know this will be my Autumn/Winter saviour.



Oh how I do love a bargain.

  10. I hardly ever remember to look in TK Maxx, then when I feel inspired & do remember, I never seem to find anything! It's not a place I have much luck with - unlike you it would seem!

  13. Actually I've not bought clothes in TKMaxx for ages but I got some orange trousers as well as suede green and red. I then realised at the time that I was too shy to ever wear them in my small town where all my friends were uber fashionalble, aww!
