This unusual weblog is our digital hub for videos, blog posts, photos, and other information we think you’ll find informative…or at least entertaining.

We don’t mean to cut your summer short, but it is time to start thinking about back-to-school shopping!   While your student runs through the aisles picking out crayons, backpacks and notebooks, the costs will be adding up for you.  Did you know the average family with school aged children will spend over $600 during back-to-school shopping?  Sounds pretty steep, so be sure to take advantage of some cost saving measures.  If you live in one of the 17 states listed below, you can shop tax-free during the corresponding dates.  Please check for details within each state for more information:
