The first day of school is right around the corner! It’s hard to believe summer is almost over. Back to school shopping was always something I loved to do but now looking back I see how it can be a nightmare for some parents. Trying to hunt down the perfect color folders and the cutest new backpack while battling the crowd might not be very fun for some.
This coming weekend would be a really good time to go shopping for clothing, computers and school supplies. August 1-2 is Georgia’s Sales Tax Holiday. According to the Georgia Department of Revenue’s fact-sheet, During the sales tax holiday, the following items will be exempt:
