Coupon clipping

This is one of my favorite weekends for shopping. I am always looking for deals when it comes to school shopping and this weekend starts the Tennessee tax-free weekend. This year’s tax-free weekend begins at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, July 27, and ends at 11:59 p.m. Sunday, July 29. This weekend is not just for students; the tax-free weekend is for everyone.

The tax free weekend guidelines are with qualified purchases of $100 or less on clothing items, $100 or less on school supplies and computers $1,500 or less. According to www.tntaxholi, the sales tax-free weekend does have exclusions like jewelry, bags and recreational equipment.

As you can imagine, the stores will be having huge sells this weekend. This is always good news for the perceptive shoppers looking for additional savings during school sales. Additionally, this Sunday, The Daily Times will have a great selection of coupons that will concentrate on school items. Shop with a plan; review your school and office supplies to stock up.

Also, take advantage on clothing items on sale or seasonal clothing for next year. This is especially great for younger children. This year the stores have added additional percent off clothing items and special store bonus bucks.

Remember, as you save money with couponing, make sure you take advantage of your savings with the 52-week money saving plan. This is the 29th week of the year. Place $29 into your savings program. This would leave a new savings balance of $435 toward your year-end goal of $1,378.
