Financial Friday: Tax Free Holidays Are Here!

by Alice Shaffer

Over the past several years I keep hearing about "tax free shopping weekend" around the first weekend of August. It pertains to saving money on back to school supplies like pencils and erasers. I have taken advantage of it in the past by mistake if I happen to be at a store that weekend and get some supplies. You probably are looking for some new outfits, socks, underwear and shoes for the kids too-don't worry they are included as well. The really cool thing is that I have noticed  that it includes computers that are of a certain dollar amount. This could be great if you are looking for a cheap laptop or netbook that you want to pick up on the fly.  I wish I had remembered this back in May when I purchased my netbook.

Of course not every state participates in the "tax free holiday" shopping but a nice handful does. Make sure to check for the details for your state. Start looking at your coupons now for items so that you can get the most bang for your buck. Look at combining your gift cards and reward credits to the stores to save even more money.  I have like $18 in Staples Rewards checks that will be very helpful come next weekend when I go and get some office supplies.
