(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.
