Tax-free shopping takes place all across Texas, and Sunday was the final day to receive that 8.25% discount.

Eligible items had to be $100 or less and included school supplies and clothes.

The weekend is designed to relieve some of the back-to-school costs, while contributing to our economy.

State officials estimate more than $74 million in taxes will be saved over the weekend, and even though the discount is small, for one woman, it's enough to make a difference.
