ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The start of tax free weekend means that stores have been packed.

During a time when everyone is back to school shopping, this weekend is a great time to save that extra buck.

Everything from basic school supplies to clothing items and even shoes will be tax free this weekend.

As far as the larger items, you can save big if you are looking to buy a tablet of laptop this year.

Stores are already advertising and shoppers tell me they are ready. 

"I am very excited. I definitely need to save a few dollars and those school supply lists are not getting any shorter so I am very excited for this tax free weekend. Target, Walmart, everywhere. I'm hitting everywhere," said shopper Erica Marshall.

Marshall said she came in today to get a few things for her classroom but she will be out early tomorrow getting more supplies. 

Be cautious when you head to the stores this weekend because there are some exceptions.
