If you have a budget for Christmas, this is a good time to buy a few Christmas gifts. My suggestions for not overspending during these tax saving week-ends from my experience are:
- Look at the ads before you leave home to shop.
- Go through your closets to see what you are in need of, donate the clothes you can no longer use.
- Make a list and stick to it.
- Do a search for your state and find out the exact rules which apply to what you can purchase during the tax free week-end.
- Stick to your spending budget.
