    No thanks. You couldn't drag me out while you proles are packing into stores for a few dollars off.

    Hmmm...Galleria is the place to be this Sunday for me.

    Metropark + Hot Topic + Urban Outfitters = automatic/guaranteed win.

    My wife and I decided to shop earlier this year and skip the tax free weekend. We figured out after buying what we needed that if we had waited we would have saved about $18. It is definitely not worth the frustration we would have had by fighting the crowds and looking through the picked over junk. we also figured out the sales were no worse, the weekend we shopped, than they would be this weekend.
