Marshalls Off-price Spendervention

TJ Maxx Spendervention Contest

marshalls

It was embarrassing. To me. Not to him. My husband is who I am talking about. We were sitting at the kitchen table the other day. He had just gotten home from work and was sitting with us as the kids ate dinner.

At one point, he crossed his leg putting his foot up on his other knee (does that sound right?). It was at this point that I noticed a hole in the bottom of his shoe.

TJ MAxx Gift Card“WTF is that?” I yelled at asked him. I further went on to explain that we don't roll like that in this household. Something has holes, we fix it or get rid of it. Since there no fixing this shoe, I was seriously wondering what the heck it was doing on his foot.

So I decided that he needed new shoes. And if he was getting new shoes, there was no way that mama was going to be left out. I was getting some new shoes too. He needed a “Spendervention.”

The folks at TJ Maxx and Marshalls graciously gave me a gift card to I could perform a Spendervention on someone. I chose myself and my husband. We needed a shoe Spendervention.

Shoppers everywhere have joined together in a national spending intervention (“Spendervention”) to stop spending too much on fashion.  T.J. Maxx and Marshalls are hoping to show people that there is a better way to shop for fashion! You don't have to sacrifice quality or spend tons of money to get designer fashion. Especially this season, it's going to be easy to update your look on a budget with high quality beauty and fashion finds when you shop off-price!

So yes, we had a Spendervention. My husband will go to the most expensive closest store to buy shoes when he needs them. So I had to intervene and tell him about Marshalls and TJ Maxx. Did he not know that you can buy shoes there up to  80% off of retail price? Has he not seen my closet?

rockport shoesWe scored a fabulous pair of Rockport Men's Colrain Driving Moc's that he is so happy with that he wears them everyday to work. They look fabulous and cost $49.99. However, these shoes originally retailed for over $120. They are very nice, made of quality material and look expensive. In fact, the entire family got new shoes so it was a pretty exciting day for all!

I have long been a lover of TJ Maxx and Marshalls. You can find almost everything clothing, accessories, home goods and more there.

Do you need a Spendervention? One lucky reader is going to get a Spendervention of their very own. This $25  gift card from TJ Maxx can be yours.

  1. I def. need a Spendervacation. I have lost a little over 10 pounds and am still going down. A lot of my clothes are becoming a bit too baggy and unattractive. I really need to get some key pieces so that as my weight goes down I will have something to use.

  2. My Dad needs a spendervention! He NEVER buys anything for himself because he thinks fashion is too expensive! This would be perfect for him 😉

  3. Mandie P.

    My husband needs a spendervention for the same reason your husband does! He has flat feet which means he wears lifts in his shoes which add (rapidly) to the wear and tear on them. Sigh.

  4. Brian P.

    It is true, I need new shoes. I could use a spendervention!

  5. Tamara B.

    My thirteen year old son needs a Spendervention. He is at this awkard age, tall and lean and needs a great new look before school starts again.

  31. My hubby does, he is the last to get new clothes in our house 🙂 Hey, he lives with 3 girls, what can I say 🙂

  32. Christine

    That is a funny story. A couple of weeks ago I noticed a hole in the bottom of my son’s shoe. I told him not to wear them anymore and hubby said “It’s ok I told him he could wear them until the end of school” I was embarrassed that he had known there was a hole and let him wear them anyway. I guess both my son and my hubby need the intervention!!!! Thanks for the chance!

  104. I need the spenderition. I don’t shop for me. I do groceries, but nothing else. I do shop for the kids though and it just would be nice to do the shopping for me for once.

  105. Alicia

    Who needs a spendervention in my home? My 8yo he is now wearing mens sizes. I can’t keep up with this growth spurt. And sadly I know it will not be his last.
