Back To School Tax Free Shopping At Westfield Mall | Tampa Mama Goes Shopping 

No Comments Lifestyle


Say good-bye to the lazy days of summer. Hello Back to School!  These days, it costs a small fortune to shop for all the back to school supplies, clothes, etc., that kids need these days!  Between supplies, new shoes, backpacks and new clothes, parents could definitely use any help to save money!

For this back to school season, I’ve partnered with Wedtfield Malls in Tampa, Florida for Back To School Tax Free week and a chance to win a $500 shopping spree!  Who doesn’t want to win a free shopping spree?!

I’ll be at Westfield Mall Citrus Park, bright and early on August 5th to score some major deals! (Make sure to download the Westfield App before you go too!)  Follow along with me on Twitter Instagram & Snapchat to see what deals I’ve scored from my favorite stores while I’m there! And with stores like Macy’s, The Children’s Place, H&M and Finish Line, my kids can’t wait to school shop this year and I’m excited about saving some money too!

Here’s all the details for THIS weekend and what you’ll want to know before you go!
