If every penny counts, then approximately 8% counts too! It may not be eight percent in your state, but whatever it is, saving money on sales tax is definitely a good reason to get out to purchase what you already need. In the state of Texas, tax free weekend takes place twice a year: once on energy saving items and the other for back-to-school items. But, you would be amazed at the list!
The list in our state includes expected items such as school clothes, back packs, pencils, white out and notebooks. However, you may be surprised at other tax exempt items. Diapers! Yep, diapers both children and adult diapers are tax exempt. Hats, rain hats, scarves, belts, pajamas, ties, nightgowns, leotards, tights. As you can see, the list is not your typical “back to school” list.
I have not yet participated in a tax free weekend. However, I plan to get out to pick up some diapers for my little in home potty training students 😉 As a thrifty mama diva, I plan to maximize my savings by using coupons and store rewards. I may get a nice deal on a box or two of diapers! And, maybe I’ll even pick up a fun hat while I’m at it 🙂
Check to see if your state participates in tax free weekends here. Then check to see what items are tax exempt in your state, as they do vary from state to state.
Saving money makes the weekend just a little more fun!
