Round-up of fun and frugal Purim and Shalach Manos items (PART1)

Here's a roundup of some fun and frugal Purim finds, including lots of items for your Mishloach Manot aka Shalach Manos, aka Purim Baskets.  (FYI, when you're done here, PART 2 of my round-up of fun and frugal Purim and Shalach Manos items is over here.)


Get this set of 24 white boxes for $6.50 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping on Amazon (27 cents each).  Please be aware that these boxes are on the smaller side, 5.5" by 1.75".  Doesn't come with the doily in the picture, but it does come with a silver round sticker to seal it.

This 50-count pack of assorted color plastic bags is $6.04. ($0.12 per plastic bag).  8.75" x 12".  This is an Amazon Add-On item, which means that it ships for free with a $25 minimum order if you are an Amazon Prime member (and the $6.04 price counts towards that $25), or it ships for free with a $35 minimum order if you're not a Prime member.

Amazon has got 60 of these gift bags for  $27.99 with free Prime/Supersaver shipping. That works out to approximately ($0.47 per bag). 8.75"H x 7.5"W x 3.5"D. (Please note that even though they appear in the photo, there are no tags on these bags.)

This 12-count pack of treasure chest boxes is $5.26 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping (44 cents per box).   If you're doing a treasure chest theme, you can unload some of those leftover Chanukah gelt coins you might have in the pantry.

This was too cute not to include, but please note that these are smaller than the ones above. Get a 12-count pack of these mini carriage boxes for $5.58 with free shipping ($0.47 per box; no Prime account required). These are about half the size of the other boxes (2.25"L x 1.25"W x 1.75"H), so they will hold fewer Purim treats (which might be a good thing).

From your emails, a lot of you are doing Frozen themes for your Mishloach Manot (aka Shalach Manos, aka Purim baskets) and are finding it a challenge to buy low-cost Frozen bags and boxes.

Though technically these are party loot bags, with a little ingenuity, they can easily become Mishloach Manot bags.  Amazon has got a set of 8 Frozen loot bags for only $3.51 (or 44 cents per bag).  This is an Amazon Add-On item.

If you'd like to use something larger than a party loot bag, these Frozen gift bags are a great choice, but they are pricier, $10.75 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping for a dozen, or $0.90 each. (Frozen is so popular right now, it was a challenge to find a Frozen gift bag for less than a dollar apiece.)


Amazon has got a fantastic deal on Kettle Brand Sea Salt & Vinegar potato chips:  six 2-oz.. bags for $2.46, or 41 cents per bag.  This is an Amazon Add-On item.

Amazon has got this 48-count gift box of Ferrero Rocher confections for $12.49 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping, or 26 cents per candy.

This Broadway Basketeers Dried Apricot and Date Gift Box is priced at $9.37 on Amazon.  This basket is kosher-pareve (under the OU).  It weighs in at 1.5 lbs., so this is really a great price...like paying $6.56 per lb. for the dried fruit and including shipping.  Try to get a kosher dried fruit platter for that price anywhere!  I might pick up a couple of these for hostess gifts.  This is an Amazon Add-On item.

This Chocolate edition of Monopoly is $8.95.   This is an Amazon Add-On item.

This Chocolate edition of CandyLand is $9.99 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping.
