Students in have been , but pupils and parents who still have a few back-to-school items to purchase are in luck this weekend.
Georgia's sales tax holiday on back-to-school items is set for Friday and Saturday.
The last time Georgia had a sales tax holiday was in 2009.
According to the Department of Revenue, sales tax will be suspended on general school supplies with a sales price of less than $20 per item, clothing (including shoes) worth $100 or less, and computers and computer accessories with a sales price of $1,000 or less.

The National Retail Federation estimates that parents with school children will spend about $690 on clothes, electronics and school supplies. That is an increase of $85 from last year's average.
