This weekend (Friday – Sunday) if you live in the United States is tax-free weekend. If you live in certain states then you are entitled to tax free on certain items. Here is the complete list of states that offer tax free weekend/week: LIST. This is an important time for shoppers like me. You can save a ton of money if you buy certain items. It is mainly geared towards the whole “back to school crowd” but it encompasses tons of items that everyday people use. One of which is ADULT DIAPERS! So, for those of you wanting to stock up or replenish your adult diaper stock then this weekend may be the time to buy those adult diapers at the local stores that you want. It can save you big dollars especially if you buy a bunch of them.
I personally buy Bambino Diapers mainly but I will admit I have a few Depend packages for when I may wear spandex shorts or leggings and I just feel like wearing a little bit thinner diaper if it is really hot that day. So, even if you are a premium diaper fan – you can still have a small stock of lower-level adult diaper brands such as Depends and Tena for backup purposes. So, go out and take advantage of the tax-free weekend and save some money on adult diapers. Also on the list is baby diapers so if you are that small and can git into them then feel free to buy some of those too! If you go HERE it has a nice little summary of a lot of the items that are and aren’t available for tax free weekend. I know I am going to do a little shopping for some clothes and get some more office supply type stuff but I am probably going to get a package or two of Depends just to have them for a rainy day when I absolutely need a thinner diaper on the rare occasion..
You know here in Japan you can claim your adult diaper expense off your income taxes. You need to provide a form signed by the doctor, and you can make the claim. Is there such a thing in the US? I wasn’t a bet wetter until i moved from there to here, so I don’t know.
But since I use cloth, I don’t spend nearly enough money to make the claim ;P
OUTSTANDING!!! forgot all about this! I did not know Diapers are tax free! Thats super good news to us with a newborn too….and well for us too 😉
Adrian, I think Depend are still on sale at Harris Teeter for $9.99/bag. Combine that with the tax-free weekend, and you’ve got quite a deal! The store I’ve been to with the best selection is up on Falls of the Neuse behind Chipotle, but any of the bigger H-T stores should have Depend diapers. Thanks for the reminder of the tax-free weekend. Taxes: boo! Diapers: yay!
Diapers are always tax free in Canada and we can also claim them on our income tax as a medical expense but we don’t need a Dr.’s note. The only thing is they are a fair bit more expensive than in the US.
Thank’s sooo much for reminding me!
I could never figure out why there’s always such a scramble during the tax-free days (of course, for GA it was last weekend). In Atlanta tax is 8%, which is the highest in the state, and it only applies to clothes under $100, school supplies under $20, and computers under $1500. So unless you’re buying a $1500 computer where you’ll save $120 in tax… saving the $8 in tax on a $100 pair of pants is nothing to go crazy over! I think you can find a coupon in the paper that beats that any other day of the week. 🙂
This to me has always been kind of like people freaking out about going to the gas station where gas is 2 pennies cheaper… like saving that extra 40 cents is a huge financial savior.
Haha, never heard anything about taxfree weekends – at least not here in Europe. What is the reason to taxfree weekends??
Nowadays in ‘stimulates’ the economy and before we were in this mess, people with kids used it to save $… even if it is only $8 for every $100… not everyone lives a life of luxury and some times every penny counts.
bah i bought some diapers today and they werent tax free….. sigh
i agree with u on this subject. i bought 4 packs last weekend
Well lucky fer me I live in Oregon so there isn’t any sales tax anyways 😛 but I didn’t know about taz free weekend I’ll have to keep that in mind for next time when I’m out driving my Big Rig!
