anyone taking advantage of the tax free weekend this weekend?

We might...gotta sit down and do bills before we decide how much to spend...i totally didn't know until it was this weekend until today...went to the mall to let the kids play in the play area, walked around and someone mentioned it to me.

  • well like every year where i live (ft hood TX) they usually have it the first or second wknd in aug....this year their having it the weekend before school starts, which is a plus but i get paid on the 10th and 25th of each month and my son goes to school on the 23rd. hence the delimena i may or may not have the money to get his stuff then so i did some school shopping this week and will do more next week when i get another pay check. i don't wanna wait til the weekend before school starts to get his clothes and then he looks like every other kids in his school.

  • really? every year before school starts there's 1 weekend where everything is tax free...i had no idea it was only certain states, i just moved from Tennessee/Kentucky (the border) and i'm pretty sure they had it too...but here in Virginia it starts tomorrow.

  • We get a tax free week, here in CT. Aug 15-21. It's for clothing under $300 and shoes under $300. They tax the S%!T out of us though, we should have a tax free month! LOL

  • Nope I hate shopping with the crazies here as it, much less when there is a SALE going on. Its almost as bad as black friday.
