Georgia Tax Free Weekend – August 5th – 7th



Edited to Add: At this time, I am not 100% sure if GA is hosting a tax free weekend or not. I do not want to mislead my readers, so I have contacted the PR rep that forwarded this information to me. If I don’t hear back from her before this goes out to my email subscribers, I want you to know that I’m still looking into this. It is never my intention to give my readers false or misleading information. I will let you know as soon as I hear back. I’m so sorry for the inconvenience.

I love a way to save money, and next weekend, Georgia is once again offering a tax free weekend – just in time for back to school.  (Well, for most people! Since my kids go back on the 4th, I’ll just barely miss the tax free deals.)

But just because I can’t take full advantage of the tax free weekend, doesn’t mean that I want my readers to miss out!

One way to keep your back to school costs even lower is to shop at Walmart.
