I can’t believe we’re within back to school talk!

Thinking about school supplies, clothes, and other necessities the costs start to add up! Virginia recently did away with tax free weekend, so I’m putting together a list for you to explore other options for back to school savings.

Maryland Tax Free Week 2023: August 13 to 19. The first $40 on any backpack purchase will be tax free, plus any qualifying clothing and footwear purchases $100 or less will be exempt.

Check out the Tanger outlets near the National Harbor for favorites like Under Armour, Old Navy, JCrew Factory (check the Tanger website for an additional 15% at JCrew), Nike, Adidas, Levis, Banana Republic, and Carters!

Target is offering 20% off the whole store (not just school supplies!) until August 26 for teachers, home schoolers, daycare teachers, early childhood education centers, and any university or college educator. Must verify an email to qualify. Check out this link for more details.

Also, if you’re doing a lot of online shopping, don’t forget about the website like where you can get cash back for purchases online.

Enjoy your last 2 weeks of summer if you’re an FCPS family! And if you’re private school — enjoy your last 2.5 weeks of summer!
