Hurricane supplies:Florida sales tax holiday for hurricane supplies begins Saturday

“Purchasing perishable and non-perishable supplies to successfully weather a storm comes with additional expenses that can impact an already tight budget,” said Brenda Marty-Jimenez, one of several UF / IFAS Extension agents throughout the state specializing in family and consumer sciences. “It can be challenging to find the time and resources necessary to feed our families nutritious food and stock up on recommended supplies.”

Thinking ahead is key, she said.

“There are plenty of cost-saving measures you can adopt now that will save you money over time, such as taking advantage of the current Florida tax holiday, creating hurricane menus and shopping for what you can, ahead of time,” Marty-Jimenez said.
