For me it's been thickers for only $1.49 and a Dear Lizzy date & sentiment stamp for $2.99. I'm still on the hunt for some AC paper pads but no luck so far.

What's the best scrap item you've scored at TJ's and how much was it?

For me it's the Thickers too I actually just recently went over the weekend and bought about 10 packs for $1.49 each and some SC clips for $1.99 I also raided Marshall's for the Thickers at the same price. They may be discontinued or whatever, but their still usable

I like getting Sbook albums for a few bucks instead of 20 something hahaha
Other then that, I don't know if I ever found a 'steal' type of deal there on Sbook items.

Great finds! I'm thinking of going during my lunch break at work! $1.49 is just too good a deal to pass up! I've found that some of the Thickers have lost their stick, but it's nothing a little adhesive can't solve.

Ditto Thickers. I got 12 packs this week, many I have never seen before. Love that price!! 1.49 here too. I also got that Dear Lizzy date stamp last week for 2.99. I have also found things like the Zig Millenium pens I use for journaling, stamps and punches at great prices. I have to watch myself that I don't buy things just because they are a good deals!

I loved the MME 6x6 paper pads that they had last year for $2.99, I bought all of them and doubled up on a few that I really liked.

Ditto to Thickers, also entire line of AC Dear Lizzy ribbon in every print imaginable, Martha Stewart border and 'anywhere' punches, Crate Paper and MME 6"x6 paper pads, etc.

But a few of my recent purchases that have me swooning are decor furniture items for my newly decorated scrap room.
Check out my craft room gallery: link here.
The architectural window panel was $59.99; I'm planning on altering it as an inspiration/photo board; the 2 desktop shelving units where my Distress inks are stored were $29.99 each. I love TJMaxx's vintage storage boxes too.

I too love the $1.49 Thickers, and TJ Maxx has greatly contributed to my stash of them! I've also really loved the 6x6 paper pads, AC ribbon packs, baker's twine, Crate Paper brads, and Dear Lizzy embellishments I've scored there.

But, my favorite all time score was tons of Herma Dotto refills for $1.49! I went to TJ Maxx's and Marshalls in AL, FL, and GA to stock up!!

A couple of days ago at TK Maxx (the UK version) I found Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm, AC My Girl, Crate Maggie Holmes and Studio Calico Here and There 12x12 pads for £7.99 each. Yes, of course I bought them

In Florida for sure it was Thickers at both TJ Maxx and Marshalls. I also got really nice paper at Ross and Bealls.

Here in Canada we have Winners and Home Sense that are very much like TJ Maxx......I have got a lot of AC 12x12 cardstock for amazing prices and my Sizzix Sidekick and alphabets for it at $20.


I love the smell of card stock in the morning.....


The Movie poster that is my avatar is very special cause my husband is in it and it won best film at the Canadian Film Festival in 2012. See it......It's super funny.

I have never found a single scrapbook item at my TJMaxx.

I hate that store for other reasons, but I stop in once in a while to see if they sb stuff. Nada every time I go and no one else I know has ever found any.

I scored Martha Stewart all over the page punches and a set of deep border with a matching corner punch. I had been eyeing them for many a week, but couldn't justify the price at M's. For 4.99 at TJ, I grabbed fast.
I also love to score the Thickers.

Found ribbon packs, paper pads, glitter pens, and nice storage containers. But my best finds were MS border punches for 2.99 and MS punch all over the page punches for 3.99. Also found some baby scrapbook kits at Ross.

I can't remember what I paid...but I love my Amy Butler tote that I bought there. It holds my 6x6 pads perfectly and I love the green/gray floral pattern.

Thickers are my favorite so far. I am going back tomorrow to get some more! I also got quite a few stamp sets last summer for $1.99(I think).

I got some Thickers there too. I was honestly surprised to see them being sold there. Sounds like I should be checking more often for other goodies.

I found a gorgeous album in a box for $5.99. That was the best thing by far. They only had one and never saw anything like it again.

Oh, it's got to be Thickers. This week, I picked up many styles I hadn't previously seen (the only names I can remember off the top of my head are Mercantile, Lindsay and Doll, all in multiple colors), along with some SC 6x6 pads and journaling cards. I also managed to get a box of striped gold foil cards that I can cut for PL or make into embellishments. So excited!

Ooo, Doll looks amazing! I definitely hope I can find that in my TJ's.

Donna in GA, at my TJ Maxx they are in the checkout line! Also in many stores they are in the section where books, journals and wrapping paper things are, as well as also in the checkout line. It's hard sometimes to look at all the Thickers when people are right next to you in the line to check out.

It's a toss up between the 12x12 paper pads at $2.99 or the Thickers at $1.49. Or maybe the MS punches at $3.99.

Too many good deals to choose from...

Some EK Success border punches, 3 out of the 4 actually worked. Too bad about the pine tree border. I had thrown away the receipt and packaging before I found out.

My TJMaxx doesn't have much and it's mostly up front next to the checkout line. I have a lot better luck here with Tuesday Morning.

I got more Thickers, today! So far I have got: Doll, Courtney, Dear, Flakey(these you can customize), Iguana, Lark, Merchantile, Roster(customizable), Stroll, Berry, Serendipity, Forest, Splendid, Niki Riki, LAX, Marquis, Rockabye and Tinsel all at TJMaxx for $1.49.

Money has been quite tight for scrapping goodies, so it has been great to be able to get a couple at a time.

I just found some in Port Huron, Michigan! They were NOT with the books/cards (although there was a small AC trimmer and a 12x12 stack there), they were by the checkout area. In my store, there are two 4' tall moveable rack things by the registers that sort of make a checkout lane, and there's all kinds of stuff hanging on the sides, like paper straws (with napkins and party supplies), nail polish, cell accessories, and a whole bunch of art and craft things by the gift wrap, tissue paper, etc.

I got a pack of the following thickers: Doll, Lindsay, Flakey, Togetherness, and Lark, but there were probably 5 or 6 additional styles that I didn't get. There was also tons of bakers twine, ribbon, packs of AC glitter, adhesive, AC markers, a couple packs of journaling cards, and some daybooks (dear lizzy and Amy tangerine.)

HTH! I would have never seen them if I wasnt going to the checkout with additional items!

Might not want to go in there because TJMaxx is highly habit forming

Tuesday Morning is really good for Tim Holtz products.
