Welcome to the Many Seasons of TJ Maxx!

January: baby, it’s cold outside. You probably need a mug. Or a dozen mugs.

February: love is in the air. It’s also in your kitchen, bathroom, and foyer.

March: more leprechauns than you will ever need.

April: same as March, only with rabbits.

May: your mom would want you to shop at TJ Maxx.

June: are you gay and graduating? This is your time.

July: celebrate freedom from not owning enough patriotic dish towels.

August: if your desk doesn’t have at least 8 storage items with descriptive words on them, are you really a student?

September: it’s already October!

October: Athens, Ohio, without the booze.

November: thankful. Gratitude. Share. family. friends. pumpkin. Repeat. Ad. Nauseum.

December: The Feast of Our Lady of Perpetual Glitter.
