But, Is It Really On Sale? Shopping Tips

Since I am a personal shopper, who is always looking to save money, I know a deal when I see one and I love to share shopping tips with my clients and subscribers.

I also know when a sale, is anything but a deal.

I love to check out the clothes and shoes in the TJMaxx name brand section, called The Runway. Often TJMaxx has lots of brands that I see when shopping for my clients in stores and online. Occasionally I find a great deal, but mostly enjoy the hunt for hidden treasures in all of the stores’ departments.

Take a look at the price tags on these Giorgio Armani pants, I found on the clearance rack of The Runway department in my local TJMaxx. Do you see what I saw?

Looks like these $795 pants, marked down to $149.99. What a deal, right?

Now look at the original price tag from the store that had these pants before TJMaxx received them.  That store had reduced them all the way down to $99. And still they didn’t sell? Makes one slightly suspicious, but I digress.

Shopping Tips

Be careful when shopping sales racks, and don’t get taken in by false deals.

“I had an upcoming conference with NO time nor desire to shop for a new wardrobe. I called Scarlett after reading her blog for many months and she saved the day. She came, spent a few hours with me going through my closet and helped me create a series of perfect outfits. The best part, at the conference a colleague complimented me and told me what I was wearing was a great look. Funny thing was, I had everything in my closet all along but had never added the boots, scarf and earrings”. –Cathi Nelson President l APPO
