Great Tips for Shopping During Texas’s Tax Free Weekend
Here at Blanco River Lodge, we know that our residents are savvy shoppers. And at back-to-school time, those shopping skills are more important than ever. That’s why when you’re looking for family-friendly things to do in San Marcos and you decide to take the family out for some shopping, you should strongly consider taking advantage of Texas’s Tax Free Weekend.
Those back-to-school must-haves can add up. Here are a few tips to keep in mind in order to maximize your savings:
- Buy in bulk. You know that your kids will be using paper, pens, pencils, folders, and other supplies on a daily basis. If purchasing these supplies in large quantities will help, do so!
- Keep “needs” vs. “wants” in perspective. All kids want to fit in, but is what they’re asking for something they need, or something that’s just a passing trend?
- Take the time to compare prices from store to store in advance of this weekend; make a plan and stick to it!
Check out some more helpful tips for Tax Free Weekend. Then mark your calendar for August 17-19 and prepare to save!
