I am happy to know that that Opry Mills is using this tax-free weekend for a good cause. Like the story said, more and more people are beginning to use coupons and look for sales, especially around this time. With the economy the way it is, people’s money is getting tighter and tighter. Everyone needs new clothes and school supplies when going back to school, and those costs can build up. School costs can get very high with only one child, and much more with those families who are having to supply multiple children. I still remember how fun it was to go buy all new “school clothes” and checking off all the supplies off my class list. When I was this age, I never realized that not everyone get to shop that way. Some people really need the extra help and tax-free weekend is the time to take advantage. It’s awesome that they are not only putting clothing, school supplies and footwear up for sale, but also making it a family-friendly event. Making school time a fun time is hard for children whose summer is ending. Having prize giveaways and food and product samples is just another fun way to get families together having some fun.
