August is the big month for "back to school" sales tax holidays. In Iowa, footware and clothing costing under $100 is sales tax-free on August 7 and 8. Kay Bell has a list of sales tax holidays nationwide.
Of course, you don't have to be going back to school to take advantage of these. You even can use it to get a new outfit to wear to South Carolina to take advantage of their November 27-28 sales tax holiday on guns.
