Tax-free weekend

(this post was written by Nehemiah)

A few weeks ago my Dad, Mordecai, and me went to buy new clothes and school supplies. First, we went to Target to look for jeans. We were surprised at how many different varieties there were. Like carpenter wear, normal wear, loose wear, and more than I cannot even think of.

My Dad told me about this comedian that was chunky that once said, "I was twenty-one before I knew that 'Husky' wasn't a name brand"!

At this Target we only found jeans that fit Mordecai, so we went to another Target. There we found jeans for Mordecai and me. We both got two pairs of jeans. Then we found itty bitty jeans for Barnabas. When we were walking through the "Boy's clothes" section, we saw polo shirts that were on sale. So we picked two kinds for all three of us . One was red and black with white stripes. And, the other was blue with white stripes.

After we paid for everything and got in our truck, my Dad told us that it was Tax-Free weekend. Mordecai asked, "What is tax?" So my Dad told Mordecai what tax is. Then we went to Office Depot to get school supplies. We got five composition books, glue, map pencils, pencils, highlighters, index cards, 6 one subject notebooks, pink erasers, and college ruled notebook paper all for only $6.50 and no tax!

Before we went home I treated us out to The Varsity! We got three chili dogs, drinks, and the orange smoothies. And, I paid for it all! We came home full. Above is a picture I took of the school supplies.

Great post! It sounds like you had a great day out. Our family is looking forward to making a few trips to Target in November. . .too bad it won't be tax free. ;)

Wow! You got all that stuff for a total of $6.50? That's great! That was really great of you to treat your dad and brother to The Varsity! It sounds like the Jordan gentlemen had a great day out together! I love your shirts that all match!

Oh, and what is a map pencil?

A map pencil is the same thing as a colored pencil. :-)
