Listen, I know Christmas is technically a long way off, but you know how fast time flies these days. It will be here before you know it! Now is a good time to start making those gift lists and seeking out bargains. I bring this up now because of the Back-to-School sales. This weekend in a number of states it's "tax-free weekend" on a lot of items that could be saved as gifts - art supplies, computer stuff, clothes, etc. Your state's website will provide more details about what you can buy tax-free. Other stores will offer good sale prices on the not-tax-free merchandise in order to be competitive. There's no telling what you'll find!
I may be back later this month with another Christmas-related topic, but I just wanted to give you this idea while it was still timely! Happy hunting!
