When my oldest was in elementary school, I lived for the tax free holiday. Now that he's a teen, I need a year round holiday. He wants clothes all the time. It could be worse, I could be complaining that he doesn't care enough about his appearance. Or that what he wears, is sloppy and he looks lazy. I'll still take advantage of the savings. Who wouldn't? It's just reminded me that I need to petition the powers-that-be to give parents of teenagers a year round break.
