Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: Tax Free Weekend in Texas - August 19-21, 2011

Tax Free Weekend in Texas - August 19-21, 2011

Tax Free weekend in Texas is this coming weekend, August 19-21 2011. 

tax free weekend texasGet all your last minute, end of the summer, shopping done!  It's not that the 8.25% off is that big of a deal, but for the most part, many stores do big sales on top of everything, so if something is 40% off, it's really 48.25% off. That's where the savings start to add up!

Keep in mind that anything over $100 is excluded. You cannot go buy designer jeans for $150 and expect to save the tax.

Now that my daughter has to wear uniforms, I'll be out this weekend doing the final gathering of red, white, and navy!

Donna, I love the idea and there sure are some good deals out there but those crowds are always brutal here in Arlington, and I'm sure Austin as well.  If you're going to take the plunge... good luck :)

Donna: Have a fun weekend taking advantage of all the savings. Take water, wear comfortable shoes and keep an eye on the kids. Stay safe.

A nice benefit for families in this tough economy!

I loved it when my kids were in uniforms,,,,khaki and navy bottoms, school shirts....the simplicity was great.
