Last Day to Shop Tax Free

Sunday is your last chance to take advantage of the Texas Sales Tax Holiday.  Buyers can find all sorts of back to school deals.  Many shoppers tell NewsChannel 11 they're seeking savings everywhere they can, especially one family.  They have six students to shop for.

Before children hear the school bell ring, parents hearing the ringing up of school clothes and supplies, because back to school means a trip to the store.  "Shopping for clothes, pants, shirts, shoes," said Charisma Ybarra.  Many shoppers hope to escape the retail race with the smallest bill possible.  "When you have a lot of children, you need that extra money," said Mary Elliott.

No one knows that better than the Sanchez family.  Saturday, they were shopping for six.  "Six, that's a lot," laughed mother Erica Sanchez.  "Oh yes, it's a lot of preparing. We've already got the school supplies out of the way. Now, it's just school clothes," said father Johnny Sanchez.

The Sanchez family searched the stores for sales.  "For about an hour and a half, going on two hours. We're still not done yet," said Johnny.  "You've got to save where ever you can," said Erica.  An expensive purchase was shoes.  Erica says the tax free weekend helps, with savings of about $8.00 for every $100.00 spent.  "But, mainly big sales," said Erica.  "We found a lot of great sales for the kids," said Johnny.
