Sales tax free shopping coming this weekend

Ohio to have a sales-tax holiday

Do's and Don'ts: WI sales tax holiday

Waiting for the tax-free weekend to save a few bucks often means battling crowds of people who all want to save money on school supplies at the same time. Definitely keep an eye out on clothing, including work and school uniforms.
