LAST DAY OF OFFER: Real Simple magazine for $12 per year



Today, 3/31/13, is the very last day to take advantage of this offer, and then it's gone.  So many of you have emailed to tell me how happy you were to get this fantastic price on a Real Simple subscription. 
-------------------------------------------
Real Simple magazine very rarely posts any heavy discounts on their subscriptions. Real Simple magazine is one of the priciest (and one of the most sought-after) magazine subscriptions out there. It has a cover price of $4.99 (which translates into $59.88 for the year over 12 issues) and its annual subscription price everywhere is a little less than half of that, $23.88.

This new deal blew me away.

Click through this link and get 12 issues of Real Simple for just $12.00 when you use promo code JUST12SM at checkout!  That comes to only $1 per issue or 80% off the cover price.  You can get this special subscription price for one year only.

Important:   Magazine Reader Mall DOES have auto-renewal, so be sure and set a Google calendar pop-up reminder for yourself to cancel your subscription in one year, by calling 1-888-243-8383 or emailing your cancellation to magazinereadermall@customersvc.com.

Mug tree for $6.99


When you're trying to function in a Passover kitchen that is just too small, every little bit of counter space helps.  This year, I didn't even unpack my coffee mugs;  there was just no room for them.  As soon as I could, I went online and ordered this wrought-iron-look mug tree for $6.99 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping.   It holds 6 mugs and tightened up the "footprint" of my coffee mugs to a very confined space.  I'm actually thinking about getting a second one for some smallish countertop tools.

Presto electric skillet for $39.99 with free shipping


I know just about all of us are done buying appliances for Pesach, but as I was unpacking my small appliances, I found my beloved Pesach electric skillet, and I went online and sure enough, it was less than what I paid four years ago.

Amazon has this highly-rated Presto 16" electric skillet for $39.99 with free shipping.   Why do I love it so much? My mother used an electric skillet for Pesach when we were growing up, and she recommended that I buy one.  I didn't believe how useful it would be until I actually got one.

With all the extra cooking I do over Pesach, my stovetop is constantly full, and the skillet gives me a extra place to whip up a stew, side dish, matzoh brei, even eggs. Even though it's non-stick, I use it with a tiny bit of cooking spray, and cleanup is super easy (very important when you can't use your dishwasher on Pesach).   I've even been thinking about getting one for chametz.

This handy little appliance got 4.5 out of 5 stars over 476 customer reviews (and 430 of those were 4 stars or more).  Read the reviews; you'll be bowled over.

And it looks like if you pay for this with your Discover card and enter promo code DISCOVER at checkout, they will give you one-day shipping and you will actually get this in time for Pesach (although don't hold me to that).

Here are some supereasy instructions for reading Kindle eBooks on any device, including smartphones, computers and tablets.  I read e-books on my PC, Kindle and iPad all the time.

30% off at Easy Spirit; beautiful, comfortable well-made shoes



Do your feet hurt?  (Mine do, right now.)

Easy Spirit is running a fantastic, high-discount 30% off sitewide sale.  No promo code is needed; the additional 30% off appears in your cart upon checkout.  If you're not familiar with Easy Spirit shoes, they are based on the premise that beautiful shoes should be as comfortable as sneakers.  Some of us (like me) are old enough to remember the famous 1991 commercial where a bunch of women played an actual basketball game wearing Easy Spirit pumps.  Yes, they are that comfortable.  Sensible shoes shouldn't be hideous shoes.  These are good shoes, they are well-made and they are not cheap.  But at 30% off, they are comfortable on your wallet as well.

Shipping is a flat $5.00 on every order, no matter how much you spend.

Naturally, I raided the sale section first.

The Quora "Mary Jane" style pumps (they come in three colors) pictured above were $79.00, and are on sale at half price for $39.99.  With the 30% off, they drop to $27.99!!





The Peeta evening pumps, available in gold and black, were $89, and then were marked down to $39.99.  After the 30% discount, they drop to $27.99.  If you've never owned a pair of metallic pumps, your time has come.  They are the new black, but much more fun, and they go with everything.

Lots of styles are available, including heels, flats, sandals, sneakers, ballerinas, nauticals and more.  The 30% sale is sitewide and it doesn't look like anything is excluded. Sale ends 3/25/13.  They carry all widths, from narrow to wide-wide.
