  • Clothing, footwear, and add-ons ($100 or fewer per item)
  • Back-to-school supplies ($15 or fewer per item)
  • Computer systems and computer add-ons (tax savings is applicable towards the first $750

For instance, look at the prices at a number of different stores, which you'll do online, and intend on using coupons when you are able.

Additionally, do not buy whatever you don't actually need. Because the regular sales tax rates are 5-7.5% (based on what county or condition you are in), that's how much money you will save by shopping throughout the sales tax holiday. You will probably find that you could really spend less money by shopping at competitive sales either after or before the tax-free weekend, together with using coupons or benefiting from special promotions.

As being a sensible shopper is the easiest method to save much more more during tax-free week.
