If you’ve received your economic stimulus check from the federal government, you maybe deciding how to spend it.

The state of Vermont has some recommendations. It created a sales tax holiday this weekend. You can save money on certain items up to $2,000. If you’re buying an energy efficient appliance, you have until July 18 to do so. But before you hit the stores, you should know the state isn’t entirely tax free. If you go out to eat or buy a vehicle you’ll still pay tax.
