This is probably the most poorly worded deal I have seen in a while, but it appears to be that if you spend 150 shekels at Rami Levy, you get a coupon for 50 shekels off at Toys R’ Us. The coupons for Toys R’ Us expire, however, the 12th and the Rami Levy deal expires the 21st of April. If anyone gets this deal, please post whether I am correct or not.
Last week was Rosh Chodesh Nisan. It is tradition to say a blessing now on the flowering fruit trees that smell so wonderful.
Take a few minutes from your hectic schedule and go out to an orchard. Recite the blessing below:
בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה ה’ אֱ-לֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם שֶׁלֹּא חִסֵּר בְּעוֹלָמוֹ כְּלוּם וּבָרָא בוֹ בְּרִיּוֹת טוֹבוֹת וְאִילָנוֹת טוֹבוֹת לֵהָנוֹת בָּהֶם בְּנֵי אָדָם.
Translation: Blessed are You, L‑rd our G‑d, King of the universe, who has made nothing lacking in His world, and created in it goodly creatures and goodly trees to give mankind pleasure.
It is so important not to forget to stop and breathe during this oh-so-crazy time. Why don’t you make it a picnic while you are there?
We have been going pretty slowly up until now, and now we have no choice but to plunge right in. Tackle a big room and just do it!
FlyLady’s web site has great detailed cleaning checklists by zone if you need.
NOTE: If you are NOT doing spring cleaning with your Pesach cleaning, here are two great checklists which will have you finished in a day:

Since we have all of our cleaning supplies and we know how many guests we will be having, it is time to tackle the linen closet.
NOTE: This mission, as well as future missions, describe an in-depth cleaning and purging. This is more than a cleaning for chametz and should not be construed as necessary preparations for Pesach. Dust is not chametz! Clean according to your comfort level.
Look at your closet- is it overstuffed? Very messy and disorganized?
Hopefully you have a little extra space now- enjoy!
Today we need to pull out our cleaning supplies and assess what we need.
This is my list of essential cleaning supplies:
If you use vinegar and baking soda, you can combine many of these items. There are some good recipes here.
Now that all of your supplies are in order, you can guess what will be in the next mission!
I only like to fly United to the US, and was very excited to see this offer from United and Leumi Card. I won’t be gicing up my shufersal card because of the great discounts, but this is a very attractive alternative to my regular Visa.
