Sales Tax Holiday Weekend

This weekend, Friday August 6th to Sunday August 8th will be South Carolina's annual tax free shopping weekend.  Most of the tax exempt items apply to school supplies and back to school shopping but the free taxes cover so many items.  Take advantage of the savings in Bluffton this weekend if you have any shopping to do for clothing, diapers, shoes, school supplies, linens, and/or computers.  Just because you don't have a child going back to school doesn't mean you can't take advantage of this amazing savings.  Just to give you a quick idea of your savings this weekend, diapers qualify as a tax exempt item, which are normally taxed at 7% here in Bluffton.  If a package of diapers costs $19.99, you pay an additional $1.40 in taxes at the checkout, so this weekend in addition to the coupons that you have undoubtedly cut out of your local paper this week, you will save an extra $1.40 per box of diapers.  Below is a link that you can go to find all of the tax exempt items and will answer any questions that you may have about the tax free weekend:

The sales are also still going on this weekend for back to school shopping so now is the time to buy if you have been holding off on something you need.  And if you keep to your budget and only bring cash into the store you can assure yourself that you will not overspend or add to your debt!

Check my "Grocery" page to see all of the items that I bought with $120.00 last Sunday, and be sure to clip those coupons from your free copy of the Bluffton Today that appeared in your driveway this morning.
