If your child is heading back to school, now is the time to shop.

Tennessee’s tax-free holiday weekend started Friday and runs until 11:59 p.m. Sunday.

Tonya Turner said this is a great time to get school items.

“As much as we have to buy, I’ll take any savings I can get,” she said. “Papers, notebooks, pencils, sharpeners, rulers, scissors, everything. I’ve got two lists.”

In Davidson County, she will save nearly 10 percent in sales-tax. School supplies, clothing, and even computers are tax-free up to $100 dollars per item.

Turner’s son, Clayton, said it is great for families on a tight budget. “You can save money to like buy food, and buy other stuff that you need,” he explained.

Although the tax free weekend does not cover everything, the Turner family told News 2 anything that cuts cost is worth it.
