COST supermarket sales- expire 28 Feb 2015

A little while ago I posted about a new supermarket chain called COST, which supposedly sells items at cost.  Here are the sales for the rest of the month- what do you think?  The only items that got my attention were Tivall corn shnitzel for 18.90 shekels and a 1 litre carton of milk for 4.80 shekels.  There is no maximum purchase or other conditions which is something to consider as well.  If it wasn’t right before Pesach, I would run over and get a large supply of shnitzel.

Pesach deals at Rami Levy- ENDS TODAY 9 Feb 2015

I finally got my Rami Levy credit card in the mail this week with some pretty awesome coupons so I decided to break it in and  do some Purim shopping.  These are the coupons I received- how about you?

While I was in the store, I did notice some attractive products for Purim (8 Elite chocolate bars for 32 shekels for example), what really got me excited was their sales on KLP products.

For example:

This product wasn’t on sale but I had a coupon for it from Rami Levy:

This wasn’t on sale either but I noticed it already had a KLP label:

This also wasn’t on sale but it reminds me to make an important point- if you are shopping for Pesach, make sure each product has KLP certification on it!  You don’t wan’t to put away a product for no reason.

All of these products have no kitniyot.

So if you have some free time today, go to Rami Levy and get your Pesach shopping started!

Frugal costume shopping UPDATED COUPON 19 Feb 2015

That time when all children get to live out their fantasy for one day is just around the corner.  Whether they dream of being Elza, Spiderman, or a chayal, costume shopping in Israel is one of my most stressful experiences.  On the one hand, it is best to start early to get the best selection and less crowds.  On the other hand, my children are notorious for changing their mind a week beforehand leaving us stuck with either an extra unused costume or a really angry child.  The advertisements are out now, so if you are successful in pinning down your child to one costume, I would say purchase it now.

Costumes are not cheap.  If you are adept at sewing or more creative than I am, a homemade costume is the most frugal option.  I had one of those creative friends in chul who was also not Jewish so we were able to use her kids’ Halloween costumes on Purim.  The chances of that happening in Israel are slim to none, but you can try and organize a local swap in your neighborhood or look on Facebook for a Purim Costume Swap group such as this one in Modiin.

For those of us who must buy costumes, here are some of the options:

Online:

  1. Aliexpress has free shipping to Israel and almost a million costumes.  Shipping can take anywhere from a week to a month so check carefully before you buy.
  2. A search on eBay for costumes with free international shipping shows some great options but again, check shipping.  The costume has to be here by March 4.
  3. Costume Kingdom in the US will also ship worldwide.  Their International Standard Shipping starts at $12.95.
    The First Class shipping will arrive in 15-25 days and will not be traceable online, To qualify for Standard Air shipping, your shopping total must be $75 or less, and weigh no more than 4 pounds. International Express Shipping is $29.95 for the first pound, each additional pound is $4.  Express Mail will arrive in approx 5-8 business days with full online tracking. Please make sure you if you need your package fast to select Express Mail.
  4. For something a little closer to home, check out Tilboshet.  Quick Box is 9.90 shekels, registered mail is 15 shekels or you can pick up your order from their warehouse in Petach Tikva.  

In person:

  1. Toys R Us has coupons listed below that expire tomorrow 4 Feb 2015.  There will definitely be more  coming up, so get their app (Google/iTunes) or go to their Facebook page to get more.  
  2. Idan 2000 is known for their low prices on costumes but they also have outlets is some stores where you can buy last year’s costumes for 10-50 shekels.  Unfortunately they don’t advertise which stores have an outlet but you can call your local branch and ask.  They also open an “Ir Tachposot” in the hangar at Tzomet Kastina which will also have very low prices.  
  3. Shoshi Zohar is unique in that they also have costumes for the dati public.  You can see all of their costumes on their web site.  They also have a factory outlet in Holon for even lower prices.  
  4. Beit HaTza’atzuim has stores in Talpiot and Jerusalem but it is not clear from their web site if one can buy costumes there.  Shipping is 20 shekels for registered mail and 44 shekels for express mail.
  5. For a store that looks like it has truly huge selection, check out Purim boo in Tel Aviv.

Are there any good deals near you?  Pass them on!

Big Tupperware sale – No Ma’am through 31 Jan 2015

In Israel it seems to be a constant battle trying to buy a reasonably priced product without it falling apart in three seconds.  We used to buy strictly according to price but after being constantly frustrated because we had to buy ANOTHER hairbrush/pencil sharpener/backpack/etc., we decided that for many items, as the saying goes, you get what you pay for.  In the kitchen I admit that I have a lot of disposable containers that are re-used often- that is, until my child comes home hysterical because her lunch leaked all over her science project.  Storage containers need to be sturdy to survive your child’s backpack and they need to keep their contents in the container.  Tupperware is one of those brands that you know will last forever- I think everyone has one item from their parents or grandparents that are still going strong.  My favorite Tupperware item is my soup mug with a vent hole on top which NEVER leaks.

If you are looking for a good quality gift for you or your friend, quickly check out the Tupperware sale going on now- 15% off the entire store except pots.  You can look through the catalog here.  To purchase an item (or more), you can contact Einat, the Jerusalem representative at 050-5741815 (Hebrew/English) or on her Facebook page or place an order on the Tupperware web site using code 1000.  The sale ends soon so get your (mishloach manot? Pesach?) order in now!
