What Will You Buy During the Tax-Free Weekend?

Electronics? Books? Clothing? Back-to-school materials? Where will you be spending this Saturday and Sunday.

Shoppers will be getting a break to the hit on their wallets during this weekend, Aug. 11 to 12, during a sales tax holiday in Massachusetts. 

This weekend the 6.25 percent sales tax levy will be suspended on most items less than $2,500. Excluded items including tobacco products, utilities, motor vehicles, motorboats and meals.

That still leaves appliances, electronics, household items, toys and a variety of other products people can buy without paying taxes. Is there something you have your eye on that you might buy this weekend?

What do you plan to purchase during the tax holiday? Is there something you've been waiting to buy that the holiday might motivate you to go out and get? 

Know of any great deals you'd like to share?

Just realized this week that mattress we've been sleeping on is almost 20 years old - thinkin' it's time for a new one.
