You might want to hold off on doing as much back to school shopping as you can until after school begins.

Students in Newton and Rockdale counties start the new school year at the beginning of August, and Georgia recently announced that a state sales tax holiday will be held Aug. 9 and 10, several days after school starts.

During the holiday, shoppers don’t have to pay tax on some clothes, school supplies and electronic items.

Tax exempt items include clothing and footwear with a sales price of $100 or less per item; single purchases of personal computers and related accessories with a sales price of $1,000 or less; and general school supplies with a sales price of $20 or less per item.

The exemption excludes accessories like jewelry and handbags,replica shoes web cellular devices and televisions, furniture and books except for children’s and reference books.

According to the National Retail Federations’s 2013 Back-to-School Survey conducted by Prosper Insights & Analytics, families with school-age children will spend an average of $634.78 on apparel, shoes, supplies and electronics, down from $688.62 last year.

“The good news is that consumers are spending, but they are doing so with cost and practicality in mind,” said NRF President and CEO Matthew Shay. “As they continue to grapple with the impact of increased payroll taxes, Americans will look to cut corners where they can, but will buy what their kids need. It’s important to note, however, that spending levels are still well above where they were a few years ago.”

The biggest portion of back-to-school shoppers’ budgets will go toward new apparel and accessories.Up to 40% Off bottega purses, shop farfetch today!‎ Fewer families with children in kindergarten through 12th grades will purchase electronics, according to NRF.

Because "The Cuckoo's Calling" is fun. Strike, Robin and even Lula are immensely likeable (their liFind a great selection of Michael Kors Satchel Bags 2013 New Arrival at hotmkbags!keability matched only by the unlikeability of the poor journalists, who must have made Rowling's life truly miserable). It sparkles with details only she could have invented: regular Monday death threats that arrive at Strike's office on pink, kitten-covered stationery (perhaps filched from Delores Umbridge's private stock?); a woman whose "sense of ill-usage wafted gently toward him like the smell of the bedridden." If language in "Harry Potter" was just the delivery system for that series' particular strain of drug, here it claims moments of occasional beauty (and takes occasional missteps -- a paean to the "deathless breath of the city" made me gag, perhaps owing to the garbage truck driving by at precisely that moment). In any case, I'm inclined to forgive an author who describes one pair of heiresses as "life-size dolls recently removed from their cellophane boxes; rich-girl thin, almost hipless in their tight jeans, with tanned faces that had a waxy sheen especially noticeable on their foreheads, their long, gleaming dark manes with center partings, the ends trimmed with spirit-level exactitude."

But where were we? "The Cuckoo's Calling" and "Harry Potter" both feature dead or absent parents, adoptees and family intrigue. They both imagine highly complex worlds that are nonetheless knowable -- if you study their laws closely -- and amusing, and beautiful and dangerous. If I'm honest, though, I liked Galbraith just a bit better than late Rowling. (The first four "Harry Potter" books still reign supreme.) While both writers are funny, suspenseful and sharp about race and class, he seems under less pressure to take himself and his story seriously.welcome to Michael Kors 2013,free Shipping available.
