We can’t believe that it’s time to go Back To School, again! Having to buy school supplies, new clothes, and getting meals prepared can be stressful and time consuming, but we found a few ideas, as well as some tips and tricks that will make the process of going back to school easy for parents and kids.
The weekend of August 4–5 is the Sales Tax Weekend for Georgia. This means that up to a certain value, clothing, footwear, outerwear, backpacks, school supplies, select books, and computers/computer accessories are tax free. This sale is a great way to save money on clothes and supplies that students will need for the new school year, and teachers can also benefit by getting tax free items for their classrooms. https://www.thebalance.com/georgia-sales-tax-holiday-dates-3129482
