Last week was Maryland’s annual “tax-free week”. I don’t know if they have something similar in other states (or countries), but here in Maryland, every year there is a week right before the start of public school when clothes and shoes are tax-free. On top of that, a lot of stores have good sales throughout the week.
The sale tax in Maryland is 6 percent per dollar, meaning that if you spend $100 you pay $6.00 extra in sales tax. Kind of a lame deal, but it is higher in some states (7.5 percent in California) and, it doesn’t include food or prescription drugs.
So, since tax week only comes once a year, I stopped by Kohl’s to get a few new pieces. For those that don’t know, Kohl’s is a department store that runs deals where you can get 15 percent to 30 percent off your bill plus you can also use multiple Kohl’s coupons on top of that. If you play your cards right, you can get a lot of good deals and save a lot, and if there is a Kohl’s near you, I would check it out.
In other news, I can’t believe I am so close to 500 followers. What the…I just can’t even believe that number. 500 people. Wow. Honestly, these past few months, I have just been in awe watching that number climb. Of course, Samandro wouldn’t be where it is without everyone of you that stops by and reads my little piece of the internet, and to those who continuously comment and have supported me – thank you.
Have you done any fall clothes shopping? Where do you go for the best deals?
