These savings might just be worth the drive to Ohio. The Buckeye State annually offers a weekend before school starts where the state does not collect sales tax on certain items. This year it includes diapers.

The tip comes from Cleveland19.com which shares news of the tax holiday.

Ohio is cutting taxes on back-to-school items this weekend. That means shoppers won’t pay taxes on school supplies and certain clothing items.

There’s a surprising item on the state’s list of tax-free clothing items: Diapers.

Parents will be pleased to know that both cloth and disposable diapers will be tax exempt Friday through Sunday, according to Ohio’s sales tax website.

Want to take advantage of our neighbors to the south? Ohio's tax free back-to-school weekend runs August 4-6.

Travelling from the Kalamazoo/Battle Creek areas, the absolute closest retail location might be the Village Market or Dollar General in Pioneer - a 1 hour and 14 minute drive from Battle Creek. The closest Ohio Walmart stores are in Bryan and Wauseon.

And in case you're wondering, no, Michigan is not one of the 16 states that offers a tax holiday for back to school shopping.
