Sales tax holiday and back-to-school shopping

Posted: Updated:

The new school year is right around the corner now and there's plenty of shopping to be done to get ready for it.

Erin Dufner from the Better Business Bureau has some tips on how to navigate back-to-school shopping.

The tips will probably be useful if you plan to go school shopping this weekend because it’s the annual Sales Tax Holiday weekend for Texas. It starts Friday and runs through Sunday.

Shoppers can save money on clothing, shoes, school supplies, and backpacks. The only catch is that each item should be less than $100.

To go along with tax free weekend, many stores have big sales.
