A Tax Holiday for the Rest of Us

If you're in Texas and need some new duds, wait until Friday. That's when our annual back-to-school sales tax holiday weekend begins. You can avoid paying sales tax through midnight Sunday. Here's a list of what's tax-free, courtesy of Gramma Strayhorn.

Also, JenBB of Felt Up and Blue Velvet reknown informed me last year that used clothes are just as tax-free as new ones. If you see me shopping this weekend, don't get in the way of the vintage Guayaberas.

One place you won't find me is at the fancy new outlet mall in Round Rock. I suppose I'll wind up there eventually, but driving out there on opening weekend during a sales tax holiday would be just the right thing to sour me on humanity forever.
