Cool list! Not in my state, but I'm sure some people here will get to save!

I do live in one of the states on the list and the tax-free weekend is this weekend.
In the past I have taken advantage of the weekend, but it depends on how it fits into my schedule. Since I only live 40 mi. from the MN border (no tax on clothing in MN everyday) and I shop in some MN stores regularly, the tax-free weekend really isn't that big of a deal.
There are things that do not qualify(at least in the past) as tax-free items such as clothing that is considered as sport equipment(certain types of shoes).
I really wish school supplies would be included in the tax-free, but they aren't.

They are gearing up around here in NC for the big event.

I'm happy to say that I am finished with my son's stuff except for some undies and socks and a few school supplies - which I'm going to try to pick up this weekend.

I have over 1/2 over my DD's shopping done, too. She doesn't have a school supply list yet, just a backpack and we've already bought it.

I've never really bought that much during the tax free weekend.

NH doesn't have sales tax but Maine does and it wasn't on the list! Glad others will get the savings though.
