Shop ‘Til You Drop: There is no shortage of free activities and bargain shopping this weekend. Georgia’s sales tax holiday continues through Sunday, with many stores are extending their hours. Check around: lots are open late tonight, and very early Saturday morning. I plan to get out to do some back to school shopping and a little shopping for myself as well. Check back on Monday to see how I did. One thing is for sure: I’ll hop online to see which stores are having the best sales, to print out some coupons and to map out my shopping strategy for the weekend. It’s not Black Friday, but it’s close enough to get my adrenaline going.
NBAF: For those of you who’ll do the opposite — run for the hills, or any place that’s far away from frantic shoppers — there are an abundance of options. The National Black Arts Festival has a host of free events. Be sure to check out Jamie Gumbrecht’s Inside Access blog every day.
