Tomorrow kicks off Texas’ Tax Free Weekend. While in past years several categories of items were available for the tax free benefit, more restrictions have come in to play this year. Will it affect shopping crowds?
Clothing, shoes and school supplies under $100 qualify. These are basically the only items that do. View the entire list here.
Because these restrictions now apply, we wanted to give you tips for maximum savings.
1. Get a Newspaper- Grab one off of the stand and go through it for Tax Free Weekend specials. Yes, you could do this online but it’s much easier to compare prices when the ads are right in front of you.
2. Hunt for Coupons- If you have a general idea of what you are going to get, look for coupons that will help you save even more. You can find these of the websites of retailers, specific brand websites and couponing sites like the Krazy Coupon Lady.
3. Take Advantage of Discounts- Many stores have student and teacher discounts. Check ahead and see if the retailers you visit have this advantage and be sure to bring your school I.D. along.
