How to find the best deals at HomeGoods

Christine Lee, the woman behind the popular @HomeGoodsObsessed Instagram account, recently opened up to about her love for all things HomeGoods.

More than 30,000 people follow her Instagram account, which documents her trips to the store.

Funky lamps, unique home furnishings and stylish dinnerware are just a few of the HomeGoods deals that she takes pictures of to share with her growing fan base.

So what’s the secret?

If you’ve been following Clark for a while, you know that HomeGoods, as well as its sister stores T.J. Maxx and Marshalls, are full of incredible bargains.

But with thousands of products that change weekly, it can be hard to identify a true value.

So here’s the secret.


Lee told that the number one way to find the best deals is to shop during the middle of the day on Tuesdays through Fridays —never on weekends when it’s super busy.

Why? The treasure hunt experience is a lot more fun when you don’t feel overwhelmed or rushed.

“No one likes to shop in a crowded space, so I find this time to be on the quiet, calmer side where I can take my time to comb through everything, aisle by aisle,” Lee told

She said Mondays are bad because the stores are in “recovery mode” after the weekend.

Red tag = Clearance!

Just like at T.J. Maxx and Marshalls, you can save even more by identifying items with red stickers, which means they’re marked down.

I’ve also received a discount on an imperfect item just by asking an associate for a lower price.

And even if there’s no HomeGoods near you, head to T.J. Maxx or Marshalls to find merchandise similar to what’s featured on the @HomeGoodsObsessed page.
