There’s so many fun and cheap things to do this weekend in Boston and beyond.
This weekend is also tax-free weekend in Massachusetts so you won’t have to pay sales tax on most purchases as long as they are under $2,500.
As a deal lover, I must remind you that this is only a 6% discount and you’ll tend to find better discounts and sales on other weeks. However, it is a great weekend to buy things that never go on sale. We used to buy all our lumber for our house projects on this weekend because it’s something we’d buy at full price often.
