Okay, I don’t want to brag…but I scored the mother of all deals on this cute clutch yesterday at T.J. Maxx.
This striped box clutch from T.J. Maxx had a $32 price tag on it, but was sitting on the clearance rack for $2:
Why? Someone had caught the chain strap in the clasp, forcing one of the links open so that the strap was only attached at one end. It was a problem that took just a moment with the pliers to fix, and now the chain is reattached.
It just goes to show that you never know what you’ll find on the clearance rack. I also once found a dress that was on the clearance rack because it was missing a decorative button on the front; I removed the remaining two buttons and sewed on three new ones. Easy-peasy.
Even if you’re not crafty there are lots of great items that wind up in the clearance section of your favorite stores, sometimes simply because they’re the last item in stock and the store wants to make room for new merchandise–so don’t overlook the clearance rack while you’re out shopping! Who know what you’ll find?
