Wouldn't it be nice to save money on the giant list of school supplies your kids need? You can this weekend, it's tax free weekend and you won't have to pay any sales tax.
Many children are ready to go back to school, one reason is back to school shopping.
Six yearold Lauren said, "you get all kind of new stuff."
Although shopping is fun for kids, for some parents it can be a big expense. Shopper Alysia Tolbert is browsing today, but waiting until tax-free weekend to actually spend any money.
She said, "being a single parent, it's very convenient and cost saving."
J and R Education Supplies will actually do the shopping for you. All you have to do is fax or drop off your kids school supply list. They'll gather up everything and put it in brown paper bags, you just have to come by and pick it up.
Marie Darby, co-owner of J& R said, "people are so busy these days, so they just leave it up to us."
Darby said they'll be open as long as shoppers are still in the store on Saturday and Sunday. She expects large crowds this weekend.
