Take Advantage of Tax Free Weekends for Back to School Gear

Every fall, parents and their kids flock to the malls to stock up on school supplies for the coming year. Back to school shopping can be a fun but costly yearly ritual. That’s why many states implement a tax holiday right before the start of the school year. Tax holidays are a great opportunity to purchase clothing, backpacks, and school supplies.

In many cases, you can also utilize coupons and special discounts for super savings. It may be tempting to go on a spree, but try to only purchase items that you would have originally. It might help to make a list of must-haves and resolve to stick to it so you don’t end up with unnecessary items. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
