#1 Best-Selling Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse set for $17.95




This is an excellent buy:  Amazon has got this Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse set for only $17.95 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping.  My husband and I go through computer peripherals like M&M's, so I am constantly on the lookout for good deals on mice and keyboards.  This set received 4.5 out of 5 stars over 2,984 customer reviews and is an Amazon #1 Best Seller in Computer Components. 

Even if you're not overly hard on your keyboard/mouse, they aren't meant to last forever, and if you've ever had one die on you without a replacement, and had to trudge on over to Radio Shack to get one for $40, well, you'll understand why I like this deal so much.

Bestest Deals of the week, week of 9/14/14


Welcome to the latest edition of Daily Cheapskate's Friday feature:  the 'Bestest' Deals of the Week!  
Each Friday I hope to summarize the deals from the past week that are still available and that I thought were the absolute 'bestest'.  It's a way of giving you a second shot at taking advantage of these great deals without having to spin backwards through the site.  These are the deals that were the best prices for the greatest value, got the most reader feedback, and had the greatest number of readers taking advantage of them.  Like I said, just the 'Bestest' Deals all around.

Without further ado, here are this week's 'Bestest' Deals:





Here's yet another innovative product from Israel.  Amazon has the Shoham Pomegranate Tool for $13.22 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping (only $0.99 away from its lowest Amazon price ever, $12.23).   If you've got Amazon Prime, there is still time to order one the Shomah Pomegranate Tool before Rosh Hashana.   (FYI, Sur La Table has this tool for $19.95 plus shipping.)

The Shoham Fruit Company in Israel invented this very clever way of removing the arils (seeds) from a pomegranate in just a few seconds.  Just cut the pomegranate in half, place inside on top of the screen and give it a few whacks, and voila, you've got a bowl full of pomegranate seeds.  The Shoham Pomegranate Tool is the winner of the 2010 Fruit Logistica Innovation Award.




I was really excited to find Brinees on Amazon for only $9.99 for with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping. It's priced between $12.00-$15.00 in all of the stores.  I love the clever idea behind this Israeli item.  You can use it for any food that needs to be stored in liquid, but is served without liquid.  So it works for condiments like pickles and olives, marinated cheeses like feta, stewed fruits, I was even thinking about sliced gefilte fish loaves!  Suction moves the liquid to the center of the bowl when you're ready to serve the item and then when you're ready to store it again, you push the liquid back out to the outer bowl, where the food is.  This is one of the hottest kitchen items out there right now. 


World of Judaica has got this stuffed Torah toy with the Hebrew words "ki mi'Tzion teitzei Torahwritten in the center, in two sizes, 34 cm or approximately 13.5 inches, and 50 cm or approximately 20 inches.  This stuffed Torah is a wonderful toy for children to carry around during hakafot on Simchas Torah.  The 13.5 inch Torah is priced at $13.00, but that price drops by 13% when you enter exclusive promo code DAILYCHEAPSKATE to $11.31 with free shipping.   If you'd like to get the larger one, the 20 inch Torah is priced at $18.00, but drops to $15.66 with free shipping after you enter the promo code DAILYCHEAPSKATE at checkout.








World of Judaica has got this wooden 3D Noah’s Ark Puzzle with animal miniatures priced at $16.00 with free shipping, but use promo code DAILYCHEAPSKATE and that price falls to $13.92 with free shipping. (FYI, Parshat Noach falls out on 10/25/14 this year.)


Amazon has got the Braun Forehead Thermometer for its lowest price ever, $26.74 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping.   This highly-rated forehead thermometer got 4.3 out of 5 stars over 454 customer reviews.  (FYI, Toys 'R Us has it for $51.99 and so does Rakuten (Buy.com).)






I've been a Burt's Bees junkie for a while now; I love their skin products, but I hate paying their high prices.  I was pretty pleased to see that Amazon has got this 4-pack of Burt's Bees lip balms for as low as $5.75 with free shipping ($1.44 per lip balm).




Amazon has these suede Ukala Sydney Toni High snow boots in black for $27.18 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping.  Make sure you select the black one only, as the chestnut and chocolate ones are $52.50.    (FYI, 6PM.com has all three colors for $59.99.)  This is a fantastic price on a popular, genuine-suede, Australian snow boot.

Crayola Finger Paints 8-piece set (4 oz. each), an Amazon #1 Best Seller, is now priced at $12.99 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping.  This set of paints got 4.6 out of 5 stars over 60 customer reviews.  And they are non-toxic and American made.



Definitely one of my favorite deals of the week!  I bought 6 of these shirts for my husband.  Sierra Trading Post has this 100% cotton woven cotton oxford shirt was $19.95, is on sale for $13.96, but use key code STW91114 at checkout and it will drop to $10.47 with free shipping.   Comes in blue and white and sizes S-3XL.



Through 9/20/14. Target is running a great promotion:  save $10 of your $40 Up & Up purchase.  Just text SAVE4 to TARGET (827438) to get the coupon on your smartphone.   This deal is good in-store with the smartphone coupon or online with promo code SAVE10.   If you choose to use this coupon in-store, make sure you stack on Cartwheel discounts (there are TONS of Up & Up items in Cartwheel).   If you choose to buy the items online with promo code SAVE10, and select in-store pickup as your shipping method, you will save an additional 10% on top of the $10 off $40.  Please note that your items must total $40 after the 10% is deducted in order to get the $10 off $40 discount.  And whether you buy online or in-store, your RedCard will get you an additional 5% off on top of all the other discounts.





Amazon unveiled five new members of their Kindle family this morning.  The good great news for us is that the new Kindle Fire HD 6 is now available for only $99.00!  And it's loaded with powerful new features.  The Kindle Fire HD 6 has got an 8 GB version for $99.00 and a 16 GB version for $119.00 (both with free shipping).   What's new is that it now has got a quad core processor that is twice as fast as the previous generation, comes with front and rear-facing cameras,  comes in 5 colors, has got a brighter 6" HD display, allow you to edit Office documents, do web browsing,  has new Firefly technology for watching media, and is running OS 4 Sangria.  And it's all for $99.00.  
Amazon is billing it as "the most powerful tablet under $100" and with good reason!   This is definitely going to be the hottest new Chanukah present this year, and I'm thrilled that it's so affordable.


Target has got this KitchenAid Classic 4.5 Quart Stand Mixer for as low as $185.24 with free shipping when you use your Target Red Card to pay for it (or $194.99 without the RedCard).   This KitchenAid stand mixer is priced at $199.99, but enter promo code TGLPTPHF at checkout to drop that price by another $5.00 to $194.99 with free shipping.  Paying for this with a Target RedCard gives you another 5% off, dropping it to $185.24 with free shipping.  If you'd like to get a larger size KitchenAid stand mixer, they are all currently on sale over here.


Get $10.00 off your $10.00 or more purchase at Sur La Table when you enter promo code PASTRY at checkout.  Excludes sale/clearance items and certain brands (like Le Creuset).  Shipping starts at $5.50, with free shipping at a $59.00 minimum purchase.  I just snagged two of these Reactive Blue Olive Bowls (pictured above) for $9.70 shipped with the promo code.  Remember that your order must total $10.00 or more, so if you have an item that's less than $10.00, you can buy multiples and still use the code.  Tons of bargains abound.

(Last Minute) Rosh Hashana and Sukkot deals, Part 2

This is coming a bit late, as Rosh Hashana is less than a week away, but you can still snag many of these deals.  Don't forget to look over Part 1 of my (Early Bird) Rosh Hashana and Sukkot deals over here.

First I'd like to start with some great holiday finds at Costco.  Keep in mind, of course, that every Costco stocks different items at different prices, so your mileage may vary greatly, but at least this will give you a starting point on where to look.




At least three times a week, a reader asks me about a Lifetime 6-foot folding table for Sukkot.  Amazon has got them for a small fortune, but my Costco had the Lifetime 6-footers for $49.99.


Costco also had the Lifetime folding chairs for $19.99 each, which I don't consider a great bargain, but I know many of you were really set on buying only the Lifetime brand.



And while Amazon has high prices for the Lifetime 6- foot tables, Amazon has got this Lifetime 4-foot adjustable utility table for only $33.00 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping.  This table received 4.5 out of 5 stars over 297 customer reviews and is an Amazon #1 Best Seller.  If you've got a small Sukkah, and a 4-foot table will work for you, this one's a high-quality table at a great price.


Costco is also a frugal place to buy pomegranate juice for Rosh Hashana recipes.  My Costco had this huge 60 oz.Pom pomegranate juice for $8.99 ($0.15 per oz.).  Compare that to Pom pomegranate juice at Target, $4.49 for 16 oz. ($0.28 per oz.).  



Costco definitely has the best deal.  You can use that Pom juice to make pomegranate molasses and then make pomegranate chicken; all the recipes and instructions are right here on Nossi Fogel's blog, The Kosher Gastronome.  You can also use it to make Susie Fishbein's pomegranate-glazed London broil




Speaking of pomegranates, check out this innovative product from Israel.  Amazon has the Shoham Pomegranate Aril Remover Tool for $13.22 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping (only $0.99 away from its lowest Amazon price ever, $12.23).   If you've got Amazon Prime, there is still time to order one the Shomah Pomegranate Tool before Rosh Hashana.  This tool removes the arils (seeds) from the pomegranate in seconds, without turning your hands bright red or using water  (FYI, Sur La Table has this tool for $19.95 plus shipping.)

Now on to paper goods.




  • Box of 50 place settings of two paper plates (8.5" and 6.87" diameter), one 12 oz. paper cup, and one cutlery set
  • Each individually plastic-wrapped cutlery set includes a plastic fork, a knife, a teaspoon, and a paper napkin
  • Plates are medium-weight, microwavable, and cut-resistant; plates and cups are plastic-coated to help prevent liquid from absorbing and soaking through
  • Plates and cups have a brown and green leaf pattern; 12 oz. cup for hot or cold service
  • Box requires less storage space than equivalent amounts of individual items, and includes handle for portability



World of Judaica has got this stuffed Torah toy in the smaller, 34 cm size priced at $13.00 but use promo code DAILYCHEAPSKATE to drop that price down to $11.31 with free shipping.  It has the Hebrew words "ki mi'Tzion teitzei Torah" written in the center.  This stuffed Torah is a wonderful toy for children to carry around during hakafot on Simchas Torah, and if you order it today, you will be able to get it in time (keep in mind that it ships from Israel).


Not only are you getting your kids a wonderful gift for Simchat Torah, but you are also helping support the Israeli economy, as World of Judaica is based entirely in Israel.




World of Judaica has got this set of six 925 sterling silver pomegranate napkin rings for $27.00, but when you enter promo code DAILYCHEAPSKATE at checkout, that price drops to $23.49 ($3.92 each).  Shipping from Israel is free, but it's too late to order these to receive them in time for Rosh Hashana (but you  will probably get them in time for Sukkot; it generally takes a little over 2 weeks to receive an item via free shipping from World of Judaica).  FYI, JJudaica has them for $36.95 and Amazon has got them for $39.33.



Amazon has got this set of a dozen multi-colored CottonCraft cloth napkins for $14.99 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping. That comes to $1.25 per napkin.  These napkins are 20" x 20" and are 100% cotton (so don't put them in the dryer).  Since they are all cotton, they will feel very nice but need to be ironed after laundering.


Amazon has got this Regal Home Collections Laura Rose Damask 60" x 84" Oblong Tablecloth in white for $12.00 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping.  It got 4.1 out of 5 stars over 10 customer reviews, and most reviewers said this tablecloth was just beautiful. 

Be aware that some purchasers complained that the material (100% polyester) was too thin, so adjust your expectations accordingly. On the other hand, at this outrageously low price, with Sukkot coming up and looking at 12 meals (not counting Chol HaMoed) and 10 solid days of not being able to do laundry, I think this is a pretty and practical steal.

While you're shopping for Sukkot table linens, don't forget about some of the best buys on Amazon:


As I explained on Part 1,  I got this idea from my creative sister-in-law, Ellen.  Since you can transfer flame on YomTov (but not on Shabbos), why not glam up your Sukkah at night with some beautiful candle chandeliers?  Amazon has this candle chandelier for $19.95 +  $6.95 shipping = $26.90 shipped.  Remember, use tea lights in these chandeliers and never leave burning candles unattended in your Sukkah (schach is an accident waiting to happen).



Now here's a really fun item. These Safed Etrog Scented Havdalah Candles are priced at $11.00 with free shipping, or $9.57 shipped after the promo code.   Rather than use this as a Havdalah candle, you can use it as a table candle at night during Chol HaMoed.  Nice Sukkot mood setter. 




And for more Rosh Hashana theme tableware, Amazon has got this B.I.A. Cordon Bleu 7 oz. small apple bowl for $9.99 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping.  It's microwave- and oven-safe.  If you're an Amazon Prime member, you can still snag this small apple bowl in time for Rosh Hashana if you order this today. (If you're not familiar with this famous brand, you can read more about B.I.A. Cordon Bleu and their signature white tableware here.)



One of the questions that reader send in often around this time of year is about deals on tradtional Sukkah decorations.  If you don't live near Eichler's or Amazing Savings, decorating your Sukkah requires a little out-of-the-box thinking.  I scored the decoration shown above at Hobby Lobby's early Christmas ornament sale and paid a total of around $8.00 for all 6 decorations. Nothing about any of these is remotely "Christmassy," and I love my faux-etrogim (don't look too closely if you think they are lemons). Raid craft stores, get out the DIY books, and do some fun projects with your kids for some innovative and frugal Sukkot decorations.

Regal Home Collections Laura Rose Damask 60" x 84" Oblong Tablecloth in white for $12.00 (and other tablecloth deals)
