Another TWO Giveaways: TJMaxx and Marshalls!!!

TJMaxx and Marshalls are both great stores to find that perfect gift at a discount price for anybody on your Christmas list this year! These stores have everything: the latest toys, electronics, purses, clothing, accessories, beauty products, home decor, and more!

I've always loved these stores. Luckily, I have both of them near me. My favorite thing to buy from them is home decor. They have some of the coolest frames and paintings for your walls!

I was contacted by an employee working as part of their Holiday initiative, and offered a $25 gift card to each store! Wow! She told me I could keep both, use one for myself and give one away, or even give both away!

I have been extremely blessed lately, receiving gift cards from family, being able to pay for all of my Christmas gifts through Swag Bucks, and so much more.

I am so thankful to all of you as my readers. You mean so much to me. So, I wanted to be able to give both of these gift cards away to help you with the rest of your Holiday shopping!

Up for grabs is ONE $25 gift card to TJMaxx and ONE $25 gift card to Marshalls.

Ways to enter:

**VERY IMPORTANT** In each entry, please specify TJMaxx or Marshalls, whichever gift card you want to win.

1. Leave me a comment telling me what you enjoy most about this time of year!
2. Become a fan on Facebook.
3. Subscribe in a reader or by e-mail (you'll see both on the right side of the page if you scroll down a bit).

*If you are already a fan on Facebook or a subscriber, just say so in your comment.
*You can enter up to 3 times, as seen above. Please leave a separate comment for each entry.

This giveaway will end December 13th, Sunday night, at 10 pm. The winner will be announced Sunday night, so be sure to check back to see if you've won! Good Luck!!!

As part of their Holiday Initiative, TJMaxx and Marshalls are giving you a chance to win a $50,000 shopping spree by creating and uploading your own Caroling Video! Go check it out!

TJmaxx. What I love most about christmas is seeing my little daughter face when she sees Santa,the xmas trees and lights, all that innocence and amazement, she is almost 2 so she doesnt care about how many present she will get, she just loves Santa, and I hope to keep it that way , I dont want Christmas to be all about presents. Im already a fun in facebook

Tjmaxx. One of my favorite things about this time of year is how excited my kids get to celebrate baby Jesus. They love the fact that they're the ones who get to open the presents and eat his cake. I just became a fan on Facebook

To be honest, the holidays have a new meaning for me this year. This will be my son's first Christmas. To me, it is not about the toys, but being able to start traditions with him that we can share for years. And then to see his face when we go look at lights and hear Christmas music, these are the things I will always remember about the holidays. TJMaxx

TJMaxx! I love Christmas so much it's hard to give just one reason. I absolutely love bundling the whole family up & going to the parades & I love making hot chocolate while we all watch A Charlie Brown Christmas. All the lights & decorations, the songs, shopping for gifts, everything. =)

Best part of this time of year:
Congregating with 100s of other UGA college students to sing Christmas Carols at the top of our lungs, praising the King and remembering the true reason for Christmas. And of course, a little dancing thrown in is a must.

I forgot to mention TJ in my last comment, so I will repeat it, you can never say "thank you" enough. Thank you for taking the time to do this for us, the time you take out of your life to share how we can save money is true thoughfulness, which is what this time of the year should be about. Thank you!

Each Christmas season I ask the Lord to give me a new insight into the Christmas story. Each year I am amazed by the new things I see in the story! Every year its something new I hadn't really focused on before. I love the way the Lord touches us specially at the times we most focus on Him!!

TJMaxx! My favorite part about the this time of year is baking! I think I've already gained 5lbs :) I also love listening to Christmas music, and my 18month old daughter and I have been watching Christmas movies/cartoons several times a week. It's such a wonderful time of giving and letting those you care about know how appreciated they are!

This season is tough. Gift giving is one of my favorite things about Christmas, because I get to see the faces of my friends and family when I find something truly unique that they would love. It makes me happy to make others happy. A gift certificate to TJMaxx or Marshalls would be a huge help this year. I'm having a hard time making ends meat. I know the true meaning of this season. It's not all about gifts. Though I do love to see my family open something shiny and bright. :) Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all.

What makes me happy this season is seeing the happy faces of my family when they open a gift that is unique and just for them. I know the season is not all about gifts. Though it gives me great joy to do so. In the economy, things have been hard for my family. A gift card to Marshalls or TJMaxx would really help my gift giving ends to meet. Happy Holidays to all.

TJMaxx - I love being able to spend MORE time w/ my family than the normal school/work demands allow; the girls are home & my husband takes off extra days from work! <3 One of our newer traditions is riding around looking at the beautiful CHRISTmas lights while wearing our pjs, and drinking hot chocolate (or Russian tea).

hi
i would love to receive a marshall gift card i do subscribe to facebook and im trying to read your blog everyday to learn ways to save some money. i have 3 boys and they are eating me out of the house!
what i love the best about this time of year is that people tend to be nicer, more patient and kinder in general towards others.. the sad part is that after its all over everyone goes back to the sterile world of not caring anymore. we should all care for one another all year long not just because the commercial world has decided to have a holiday to make some profit. kids are hungry all year long not just at christmas and there is suffering all year long it would be so nice to live in a wolrd where that kind of spirit is expressed 365 days a year :)
thats my little pep speech for the day.
thank you for your blog it is very helpful and keep up the great work!

Marshall's (either one would be wonderful). I absolutely love this season. I love cuddling up by the fire looking at the Christmas tree and either watching Christmas movies or listening to Christmas music while working a puzzle. I love to drive around and look at the various lights and decorations around town. I love spending time with family and seeing the smiles on their faces while reminiscing about the old days! I also love reading the Christmas story in the Bible and keeping in mind the real reason of Christmas! ~ Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone!

Marshall's preferably or TJ. Maxx I love them both and they are both nearby. What I love about Christmas is celebrating the birth of Christ and being able to spread his love through giving to those we love. Giving is a powerful tool and an awesome blessing and every year we give to those less fortunate through our Angel Tree at church. This Christmas is truely special because it is the first Christmas for our family now that our twin identical 13 month old girls are home with their 6 year old brother. God is GOOD and he will bring you through every test and trial! Double Blessings!
