Hannah’s TK Maxx Secrets videos have gained thousands of views, one of which has gone viral with 40.3,000 likes.

She lays out the best time to shop, and some of the tips might surprise you.

And here are some of its golden rules.

In one of her “TK Maxx secrets” videos, Hannah encourages shoppers to arrive as early as possible and says stores usually restock in the morning.

She said: “TK Maxx receives deliveries every day except Sunday and it is usually in the morning.

“Usually they have staff who start work at 6 am and it’s their job to put all the stock out.

“However, everything turns off – unless there is no space on the shelf which is very very rare [and only really happens] at Christmas.”

Don’t bother with the January sales

We all love to get a good deal after Christmas, but Hannah says the TK Maxx January sale is no different from the sales they run throughout the year – so it’s not worth the wait though. you see something you like before. .

She explained, “There is always a sale and there is usually a sale section.

“But you will always find items on sale in TK Maxx, no matter the time of year.

“They have big sales in January, but they literally change the color of the sticker.”

Wait six weeks for bigger discounts

If you’re willing to wait a few weeks for the item you’ve spotted on the shelf, you might be able to get an even better deal.

Hannah says product prices are reduced every six weeks until final clearance, where the best deals are.

She said: “Everything in the store is downsized every six weeks.

“And if he is there for 12 weeks, he will be reduced again until final clearance. [which is when] it all comes down to like 20p. It’s ridiculous.”

Browse the store for the best designer items

There are always designer brands on offer at TK Maxx, but not all of them are obvious.

Hannah recommends search in the shop to find specific brands because some partnership agreements prevent advertising.

She said: “Calvin Klein has a partnership with TK Maxx but they are not allowed to advertise it as part of the deal.

“So if you see [the tagline] ‘The best American brands‘, it’s usually Calvin Klein but we use it for other American brands if we couldn’t find the right signage for it. “
