Annual Daily Cheapskate Rosh Hashana and Sukkot Deal Roundup! PART 1

Welcome to Daily Cheapskate's annual round-up of the very best Rosh Hashana and Sukkot deals! Some of these are re-runs but quite a number of these deals are brand new for 2017.  This is Part 1, and Part 2 can be found over here.

Amazon has the Shoham Pomegranate Tool for $9.00 with free 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. 

Amazon has got this set of six honey dippers for $7.94 with free Prime shipping (works out to $1.32 each).  4.7 out of 5 stars over 140 customer reviews.  These are great for Rosh Hashana, if you like to have multiple bowls of honey around the table, and you simply cannot beat this price for the six of them.

Amazon has this Godinger "Jam Jar" with spoon for $12.40 with free Prime shipping.  Makes a beautiful crystal honey dish or hostess gift. Measures approximately 4.5" high x 2.25" in diameter. The spoon is 4.5" long.

More honey containers:

I can't vouch for the quality or the kashrut of this, but Amazon has got this 9" shofar for $18.99 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping. (Great for practicing or for the kids.)

Amazon has got this apple-shaped glass dish for $8.39 with free Prime shipping.

This was circulating around Facebook last year, and while it's not a "deal" per se,  I just had to share.  This will make an awesome decoration for any Rosh Hashana simanim plate.

Amazon has got a large, 3-lb. jar of Y.S. Eco Bee Farm Raw Honey for $19.61 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping.  Raw honey has the texture of a thick jam, and spreads very easily on challah (and it is crazy delicious).  We always like to put several different varieties of honey on the table on Rosh Hashana and this is one of our favorites. Under CRC hashgacha.

Walmart has got this set of four black or antique linen Mainstays steel folding chairs for $39.00 with free shipping or in-store pickup.  That comes to $9.75 per chair (cheaper than some chair rentals!).  These chairs got 4.7 out of 5 stars over 84 customer review.

Jet.com has got this Cosco card table and 4 folding chairs, priced at $49.87, but this drops to $34.90 with free shipping, when you enter the promo code WAREHOUSE30 at checkout. (Discount good through 9/16/17.)

If you're shopping for long tablecloths for Sukkot, this is one of the best deals around:  Amazon has this 90" x 156" wrinkle- and stain-resistant tablecloth for $15.89 with free Prime shipping.  This 13' tablecloth will drape nicely over your 8-foot tables.

Other sizes:
These tablecloths are not going to be amongst your finest linens, but they are durable, wrinkle-free, wash out beautifully, and are a real boon during an 8 day holiday that is replete with huge meals and laundering restrictions (not to mention 3-day YomTovs this year!).  You can dress them up with a pretty runner and creative place settings.  I think using one of these tablecloths is much nicer than covering a fine tablecloth with plastic, but that's just me.

You'll find other lengths and colors of these tablecloths here.
Indispensable for Sukkot:  an outdoor power strip and an outdoor electrical cord. Whether you've got a fridge or a light or whatever to plug in, you need to have a good outdoor power strip and cord.
I love the "Looks Like Real" plastic disposable tableware. If you've got to use paper and plastic, it really dresses up the table. It gives me the advantage of setting a lovely Yom Tov table out in the Sukkah without worrying about smashed china, and when the meal is over, everything goes in the trash.  If you're of the greener persuasion, you can wash and reuse these (defeats the purpose, but whatever floats your boat) but never put disposable tableware in the dishwasher.

Amazon has got this 160 piece set of Reflections plasticware for $16.10 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping.   If you're not familiar with Reflections, they are the heavy duty, silver-colored plasticware that very much resemble actual silverware, and are a big step up from regular plastic utensils.  The 160 pieces include 80 forks, 40 spoons and 40 knives.  (Sometimes Costco has this silverware for slightly less than the Amazon price, though I haven't seen it there for almost a year, but it doesn't hurt to call and check.)

Target has got this 60-count Spitz Gold Cutlery for $5.00 or just slightly over 8 cents per piece.  You can also get the 60-count Spitz Silver Cutlery for $5.00 as well.

If you've got a Target RedCard (and if you don't, you really need to get one because RedCards are awesome money savers), you will save 5% on these sets, bringing the price down to $4.75, or just under 8 cents per piece with free shipping.

Shipping is free with either a $35 minimum order, or with using your RedCard as your payment method (no minimum), or it's $5.99 flat-rate shipping.  You can also opt for free in-store pickup.

Also check out this Table To Go 'I Can't Believe Its Plastic' 50-count Ivory Lace Plate Set on Amazon for $18.99 with free Prime shipping. (The ones that I ordered and received were definitely white and not ivory.) This set includes 25 - 10" dinner plates and  25 - 7.5" salad plates.

(FYI to East Coast shoppers, if I bought the comparable plates at Amazing Savings, they would cost a total of $22.50.)

Amazon has got this 72-foot outdoor solar string light set for just $16.69 with free Prime shipping (23 cents per foot).  We used these last year; perfect idea for Sukkot/Succos.  4.0 out of 5 stars over 68 customer reviews.  (Please note that you will still need another lighting source as string lights rarely give off enough light to stand on their own in a Sukkah.)

The way it works is this:  the string lights have a small panel that stays exposed to sunlight during the day and then, when night falls and the panel is no longer in the light, the string lights come on automatically.  They operate on solar power, so no outlet or extension cord is needed.  They are rated for outdoor use, so they shouldn't short out when it rains.

Have you discovered mesh food covers yet for clean and safe outdor dining? Mesh food covers are a great way to be able to put out the food ahead of time without worrying about the flies/bees/mosquitoes eating it before your guests do.

Amazon has this very practical set of two mesh food covers for $5.98 with free Prime shipping.

Or you can get a little shmancy and order this cute Woodard & Charles 14" Round Dragonflies Food Dome for $22.89 with free Prime shipping.  There's also this grapes one for $19.92 and lots more over here.

I got this idea from my 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 Shabby Elegance Scrollwork Chandelier for $20.69 with free shipping. These hold just 3 candles, so I would use at least two of them.  SAFETY FIRST:  NEVER leave candles burning in an unattended Sukkah.  Use tea lights instead of candles, and if you finish eating before the candles have burned out, bring them in the house with you until they do.   (Schach is a flammable accident waiting to happen, G"f).

If you don't mind spending a bit more, I also found this beautiful candle chandelier for $31.33 with free Prime shipping.  LOVE this one.

Part 2 of this roundup can be found right over here.
