Many children are heading back to school earlier than usual this year, and this means tax-free weekend comes earlier, from August 11 through August 13.

According to the Texas Comptroller, "the law exempts most clothing, footwear, school supplies and backpacks priced less than $100 from sales and use taxes." This could save shoppers about $8 on every $100 spent. This includes items sold online, by telephone or mail.

The Texas Comptroller also says shoppers can use layaway plans to take advantage of the sales tax holiday.
