Think about all the leading brand stores you would shop at at the mall, or Target. How much money would you usually spend when you want to splurge on yourself? A lot? Same! If you wanna save a few extra bucks, you might want to try discounted stores like Marshalls or Tj Maxx. Chances are, everything you would need at Target, or the mall will be there!

Products ranging from, beauty, clothing, shoes, and even home furniture! All for half the price you would spend at Target, or the leading brand! For example, I went to Marshalls and hunted for the best deal possible and found an Adidas cap (usually ranging from $25-27 from Urban Outfitters or Lids) for a low price of $13! What a steal.

Shopping at discount stores might be a little bit of a hassle because you have to scrimmage through the mess other customers made, but once you find something amazing for the low price, it’s almost a rewarding feeling! You also may feel less guilty for splurging on yourself! Not to mention it’s a great activity to kill time or even to do with your friends. It’s almost a bonding experience for my friends and I when we go in because we’re truly in awe by all the crazy things we find, especially their snack selections. Which seems to be endless! Maybe try your local discounted store next time you want to pick up a little something special for yourself.
