Ok, does it mean I'm just down right CHEAP, because I look so forward to this weekend EVERY year? I mean, who doesn't want to save some money? ESPECIALLY when you don't have much to save in the first place...lol.
Today is the first day of the Georgia Tax Free Weekend. I'm telling you, this should be a Federal Holiday! Oh wait, maybe not...can you imagine the people that would be out???
As I've mentioned in previous posts, my Jayla will be starting Kindergarten in a little less than 2 weeks. Every year, we budget an amount to spend on back to school clothes and supplies. This year, it's Jayla's turn. I was given the money about 2 - 3 weeks ago to start her shopping. THEN, the day before I'm about to hit the stores, Daddy asks me to wait until the Tax FREE weekend. ARGH!!! That money has been burning a hole in my pocket for WEEKS :-).
We got an early start this morning and were walking back in the door at 12:15pm!!! (NOTE: and we even sat down and had lunch!) I should get an award for SPEED SHOPPING!
And thank GOD for friends with kids the same ages as mine. My friend Marie, called me and Jayla over yesterday to look through some clothes that her daughter could no longer get into. Her daughter, Ashlee and Jayla play soccer together. Ashlee is about a year older than Jayla and wears THE cutest clothes. Imagine my excitement when we got to look through them! Jayla is a tiny little thing and fit in about 3/4 of Ashlee's clothes. Marie has NO CLUE how much money she saved us today! Miss Re...you ROCK!!! Some people don't like hand me downs...but like I said above, who doesn't like to save money.
ANYWAY...back to the tax free weekend. I spent only $63 in Target today and was only taxed on about $5 of it!!! How cool is THAT??? Most of which were school supplies. And again, speaking of saving money...my dad works at Staples and is getting the bulk of Jayla's school supplies for us. Boy, it sure pays to know people!!! LOL
Before I go, let me tell you this. Do you know my FIVE year old daughter asked me if I thought SHE needed a bra? Are you KIDDING ME??? Too funny! Thankfully, she was very easy to convince that she didn't need one. Remember our bra shopping trip a few days ago? She does! She reminded me that she won't need a "big ole" bra at LEAST until she's 6! Gotta love this kid!!
Ya'll have a great day!
