Back to School Savings with
Tax-Free Week in Maryland & Virginia
As a mom of two young children, I’m always buying new clothes, shoes and whatever else they seem to need. Whether they grow out of it too quickly, get a stain so bad not even the power of Oxiclean can get it out, snag a shirt on the object I told them to stay from, my kids keep me in the store!
Now that we’re counting down the days until school, I’m looking for the best deals around for clothes and supplies. I mean, it’s not in my nature to pay full price for anything (at least most of the time). With coupons in my purse, on my phone and a good sale, I can get a wardrobe for them both for little to nothing. Now that Maryland’s Tax-Free Week underway, I’m ready to get my shop on! Back to school deals have hit the scene and it’s time for us to take advantage! Don’t forget to get yourself a thing or two!
