Greetings everyone,

First of all, it should be noted that this is solely for curiosity.

I work in retail and have a few questions concerning your or your family's back-to-school shopping habits:

  1. Does your state have a tax-free, or something similar, weekend? Do you take advantage of it or avoid it?

  2. Do you use the school supply lists? If so, do you follow it completely or just as a guideline?

  3. What's your favorite place to do your back-to-school shopping?

  4. This one is for the college students, how did you approach shopping for your first semester/year in the dorm?
