Try Sam's Club Free This Weekend and Sales Tax Holiday

OK, I'm not a big fan of the Wal-Mart or the Sam's Club, but I woudln't want you to hear about it from someone else: Try Sam's Club with no fee this weekend, August 6, 7 and 8.

This coincides with the back-to-school Illinois sales tax holiday, which I'm sure you've heard about by now. I want to post about strategic savings for the tax holiday, which runs Friday, August 6, through Sunday, August 15, but I can't promise I'll get to it before I leave for BlogHer '10 in New York City tomorrow morning.

In case I don't get a chance to write about this more until next week, here's a list of the clothing and school supplies included in the sales tax holiday. No, you don't HAVE to be shopping for a student to get it! Between this and the school supply sales going on, this is definitely the best time to stock up on scissors, pens and notebooks, not to mention steel-toed shoes, athletic supporters and rubber pants.

(All on the list. I'm wondering -- do they mean rubber pants like, for duck hunting? Or rubber pants for the baby to wear over his swim diaper? Or some third type of rubber pants I'm not aware of?)
