Tax-free shop-a-day

Today starts my state's tax-free holiday. I anticipate this event - not so much because of the lack of sales tax but for the sales that go along with it. I am a sale junkie. I make a beeline in any store for the clearance rack. I refuse to pay full price for any garment, ever.

So today, the kids and I are getting ready to head out the door; after a few hours of whining, hiding in clothes racks and endless sighs when I say, "Let's try this one on," we will come home bags of clothes richer and pockets empty. But that's OK. Kids need clothes (so do I). And we're having a clothes swap at the end of the month to get rid of all the stuff that doesn't fit (or fit in the closet).

How will you spend your tax-free holiday?
