Discover Deals on School Supplies in Time for NM Tax Free Weekend

One of my all-time favorite movies is You’ve Got MailIn the film, Joe Fox tells Shopgirl in an email, “Don’t you love New York in the fall? It makes me want to buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly-sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address.” There’s no getting over the freshness and satisfaction of brand new school supplies. Those never-opened Crayolas and crisp stacks of notebook paper make the school year overflow with possibility. 

But, by all means, let’s not break the bank on school supplies.

Tax free weekend in New Mexico is coming up August 4-August 6. You can find out everything that qualifies for the tax break here. While you may have to fight some crowds this weekend, it’s a great time to save a few bucks.
