Take Advantage of Your State’s Tax Free Shopping Days

Take Advantage of Your State’s Tax Free Shopping Days

Back to school shopping is my favorite shopping season of the year since I work on Christmas and birthday gifts all year long to make it less painful on the budget.  One of the best ways to save another 7% to 10% right off the top (depending on where you live) is to plan ahead and shop on your state’s tax free shopping days. Many states have tax-free shopping weekends in August, where customers don’t pay sales tax on items like school supplies, electronics and clothing.  Use the list below to find out if your state has a tax-free weekend and what items it exempts. Most of the information below is courtesy of TaxAdmin.org and I’d recommend verifying each state through the links provided.

The kids are totally getting into back to school mode and I’m thrilled!

Get Amazing Displays with Sony Xperia Unlocked Phones

It wasn’t too long ago that I would carry my nice DSLR camera and bulky camera bag when I’d go to special places or events with the kids and it seems like I’d spend the whole time hiding behind the camera and I’d never be in any of the shots! With all the advances in cell phone camera technology that has changed, now all I have to carry with me is my cell phone (well and occasionally a selfie stick) and I can capture all the memories with great photos and I can even be in some of the shots.
