Today starts the first day of the no sales tax in Florida for items such as pencils, shoes, backpacks, etc. This sure is a huge savings. Having three kids and two of them being school age the school supplies run upwards of $200+ for each kid. In fact my oldest has to have some calculator that costs around $150. It links up to the computer and the whole nine yards. Whatever happened to pencil and paper? I suppose those days are gone. Hopefully it can drive her to school as well.
I think we’re going to head out this afternoon and go shopping for our supplies. Sarasota county starts back to school on Monday August 7th.Here’s a link to the Sarasota county schools: http://www.sarasota.k12.fl.us/
