Tax Free Weekend and Back-to-school Shopping

In Texas, it is tax-free weekend on school supplies and clothing.  What this means to parents is that they can save a little on purchasing what their children need to start the school year.  Besides making “grade packs” of supplies, most department stores and office supply stores put many of the other desired items on sale during this weekend to encourage the parents to shop with them rather than their competitors when buying new name-brand stuff.  One of our local thrift stores went beyond the sale concept to help parents save more money (since everything a student needs does not have to be new) by offering all their clothes for half price as well as the no tax for this weekend. 

Besides the happy shopping, parents might also want to check out these links for other helpful back-to-school information:
