Smart Shopping Strategies for Tax Free Weekend:Remember to use common sense when you shop. That's the best way to save even more more during tax free weekend. For example, compare prices online before you go shopping, and try to use coupons whenever you can.
In addition, don't make the mistake of buying anything you don't need just because of the sales tax holiday. After all, the sales tax rate in Missouri is only 4.225%, so that's the amount - plus any local sales tax, if applicable - that you would be saving by shopping during the tax free weekend. It's entirely possible that you'll find greater savings by shopping either before or after the actual sales tax holiday, so pay attention to sales circulars and advertisements for your favorite retailers.
