“No Tax” Holiday!

Hey everyone! Sorry for the long hiatus. I didn’t exactly disappear, but I’ve made it up by keeping up with the reading and commenting on some of the entries posted here…

Anyway, heads up for the wonderful “No Tax” holiday! I’m always looking forward to these few days of blissful I-don’t-have-to-pay-for-tax after purchasing stuff. It’s always a nice bargain, and I need a new wardrobe anyway. I’ve been wearing almost the same clothes for over a year (but I have enough to mix and match). However, it’s limited to certain footwear and clothing for Texas.

I’d rather go to the Carolinas for better deals overall. I mean, they have stuff like computers and software that would be exempt from state and local sales taxes under a certain price, of course. Why can’t we have that in Texas?

Anyway, for us, our “No Tax” holiday starts on August 4 through 6, 2006. Good time to start shopping for school supplies, clothing and shoes for our kids, eh?

You can read about all of this holiday at these two sites:

Happy shopping, everyone!

    Ooooohhhhh… I had completely forgotten about that. THANKS!! Now I’ll spend the rest of next week wondering where my paycheck went (at least it’s not going to sales taxes right??) :)
