A Texas Holiday Weekend!

Starting today and continuing through the weekend, shoppers in Texas are free from paying taxes on certain clothing and footwear. For those of you who do not know, the current sales tax is 6.25% plus local jurisdiction tax in Texas. For most, this means an average of 8% sales tax. August 4th, 5th, and 6th are considered a holiday in Texas due to the tax break on most clothing and footwear under $100.

Mrs. Medicated is excited to hit the stores early Saturday morning. The best part of this is that most stores offer early-bird sales as well, as it is definitely a reason to get out early and take advantage of the deal.

We have set a budget of $250 on our expenditures. Hopefully, we can get some very good deals and really stretch the dollars!
