As a former teacher and mother of 2, I am quite aware of how much it cost to start school each year. If you have children in school or teach, this is the weekend NC offers once a year to get all those need items without paying taxes (list below of approved items). I have a son that is finally a senior at Appalachian State in Boone NC, I hope this is my last buying trip! However, my daughter teaches at Salem Middle School in Apex NC, one of the highest scoring Middle Schools in the state so she racks up a nice bill getting items to start the year with. Jenni is also going back to NC State for her Master in Social Work, more school supplies.

I also know many people from VA that cross the "boarder" to do a little shopping. There will be great deals along with the tax incentive so come on down and check out NC and save a little money.

Wake County families can save money on eligible back-to-school items by participating in North Carolina's sales tax holiday weekend on August 6-8. If basic school supplies, clothing, and a new computer are on your back-to-school shopping list this year, then take advantage of the bargain shopping this weekend.

Save Money On These Items

  • Clothing & footwear
  • School supplies of $100 or less per item
  • School instructional materials of $300 or less per item
  • Sports and recreational equipment of $50 or less per item
  • Computers of $3,500 or less per item
  • Computer supplies of $250 or less per item

The holiday begins at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 6 and lasts until 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 8.

Go to http://www.dor.state.nc.us/taxes/sales/salestax_holiday.html for more details on the 2010 sales tax holiday.

Tips for Additional Savings

For some families, purchasing all of the necessary items while staying within the budget can be a challenge. Before you go to the store, be sure to check with your school for a supply list. Prepare a budget with your child and let your child pick a few special items he or she likes. While these back-to-school shopping strategies will help you be a more efficient buyer, planning ahead will help you get the most bang for your buck.

Buy school supplies in 3's. When you find a great deal on basic supplies such as paper, pencils, crayons, binders, etc., try to stock up with at least three of each item. Your children will be well-stocked for the first day of school, and you can restock at least twice later in the school year or have a head start for next year.

Team up and buy in bulk. Wholesale stores offer great deals for shoppers who buy in bulk. To get discounts on basic school supplies, talk with your neighbors, friends or other parents in your child's school who need to purchase school supplies.  Once the group agrees on a shopping list, buy in bulk and split the cost.
