Back to School Shopping Tips for the Tax-Free Holiday

The fine folks at the Better Business Bureau were kind enough to put together a list of shopping tips for our readers for the Sales Tax Holiday coming up this weekend. For those who might be partaking of the Tax-Free weekend for the first time, and even for shopping veterans, some of the tips are invaluable. Be sure to take a close look before you shop because "Back-to-School" sales don't always mean you're making the most of your money.

Annual Sales Tax Holiday runs Aug. 19 – 21

VICTORIA, Texas – The 13th annual Sales Tax Holiday, or Tax-Free Weekend, begins Friday and runs until Sunday. Consumers can expect to save approximately $8 for every $100 they spend on most clothing, footwear and school supplies priced less than $100.

Mellencamp – No Better Than This

John Cougar, Johnny Cougar, John Cougar Mellencamp, John Mellencamp. Regardless of what you call him, there’s no question as to why he is in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Last Saturday night in Austin, Mellencamp made one of his two Texas appearances for his current “No Better Than This” tour. When you couple Mellencamp’s great stage presence with the new Moody Theatre on Willie Nelson Boulevard (2nd Street) in downtown Austin, you knew it was going to be a great show. Although, there was apprehension on our part on how Mellencamp was going to integrate his new project cd/album into his show, in the end it was a flawless presentation.

Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner on the Cheap in Victoria

One day, three meals, and a 20 dollar bill
Breakfast:
I live 10 minutes from work. This typically means that on any given day I roll out of bed about 20 minutes before it’s time to be at work. My breakfast generally consists of a cup of coffee with a side of coffee. I’m just not a breakfast/morning person.

However, for the sake of journalism and for you, dear reader, I made the sacrifice of getting up a whole 15 minutes early.

To paraphrase that beer swilling, most interesting man guy, I don’t always eat breakfast but when I do, it’s a breakfast taco. With the goal of cheap *and* tasty in mind, I jumped in my car and headed for Taqueria El Rodeo.
