Vacation is one of those we all dream of, and sometimes plan, and sometimes even go on! The thing is, it can be super expensive to "get away", but right now, there are a whole bunch of deals that will let you get away for less than $300 per person, if you grab it now!  That's about 1000 NIS per person on the upper end of these deals! All of these deals include flights and hotels. You'll still need to budget your spending money.
STILL. A GREAT DEAL...



So: here are the deals I found that are less than $300 per person, check them out and plan your next vacation! If you see something that works for you, be sure to read the fine print (you can ask me on my Deals page) and book FAST!

Keep in mind that in general, deals by Groo require you to buy at least 2 deals. The price is based upon 2 people in a double occupancy room, so you cannot book one ticket at this price and expect to redeem it.

Visit Georgia (the country, not the state), starting at just $289 per person!

Weekend deals in Athens, starting at $289 per person includes flights, transfers, and hotel)! (must buy 2 deals)

Cyprus vacay starting at $285 per person (min. 2 people) - includes flights and 3 nights in a 5 star hotel

Vacation packages to Albania starting at $299 per person (you must buy 2 deals to get this price)!

35 shekel meal for 6 people (no kids)

It's been a while since I posted about cheap food, but I think it's time to do one of those!

I'm in the middle of a pantry/freezer clean-out (because I literally have not had time to shop much in over 2 weeks, except for a random makolet run) so I thought I'd share some of my 5 - 6 shekels per person meals.

Yup, 6 shekels per person and I think everyone found enough food.


Here's how it went:

1 dozen medium eggs (10.50 NIS)
oil for cooking them (less than 1 NIS)
pinch of salt (almost negligible. let's say 5 ag)

These I made into omelettes - 2 eggs per person

Brown rice (500g) (3.50 NIS)
sliced mushrooms (not a lot - 3.50 NIS worth)
oil, water, salt, spices (less than 50 ag)

Bag of frozen peas (bought on sale for 7.50 NIS)

2 yellow peppers 
2 red peppers
1 light green summer squash
2 zucchini (found these in my fridge needing to be used up, I bought them a few weeks ago)

I bought the peppers and summer squash for 4.90/kg and the zucchini was a bit more. The total for all of these was probably under 6 NIS plus I drizzled olive oil on top, so let's add another shekel and half for good meausure. Total 7.50 NIS

Altogether this adds up to 34.5 NIS. Now I don't really know how to calculate my gas and electricity use, but that's not part of my grocery bill, so we'll let that slide and not add it in here! This fed 6 people dinner tonight, the youngest of whom is 12 years old! 

When my kids were younger, cheap meals used to be doable for less, but that doesn't work now. Still, I think this dinner is pretty well priced for a variety of foods and offers something for everyone!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Last night I had NO time to cook, so we made do with the following:

pasta (half a bag of whole wheat pasta - 2 NIS for a half a bag - plus a bag of white pasta - also 2 NIS)
cottage cheese (bought on sale for 3.33 - lately I've found cottage cheese on sale on Sundays for 3/10 NIS)
shredded cheese, about 250 g - 8 NIS

random soup (leftover pea soup - it was a super simple soup and I bought the split peas on sale for 5 NIS/kg, so I'd say it was 3 NIS worth of soup from shabbat plus random veggies (1 onion, 2 kishuim, 2 carrots, a couple of garlic cloves - 4 NIS, let's say) plus rice noodles (I used 2/3 of a package - 4.70 NIS) and some seasonings (under 50 ag)

Total for that meal was under 28 NIS, and we ate the rest of the soup for lunch today! 

Anytime I manage to make quick homemade meals without spending a lot is a WIN!!

About those peas I found hiding in the freezer:
I'm hoping to clean out that freezer very soon. It's a bit embarrassing, but my freezer is a ROYAL MESS! I keep buying things on sale and shoving them in there. Only there, I must admit, is 3 different places. I have 2 fridges (with small freezers) and one large freezer. But it's time to get rid of one of those fridges - we got it secondhand, and it needs a repair (it leaks a lot of water) and it was useful for a long time, but I am ready to make it work without it... So it's cleanout time and then I can reclaim my mudroom! I'm excited because I really want to paint that room purple... AND I can't wait to lower my electric bill!

I'm not sure my family will let me paint our entryway purple, but I'm sure going to try!

Hope you found this helpful!

Hand-picked Amazon Deals!

Thank you for helping me keep this website up and running!


SAVE on everyday things you would buy by shopping online! Previously, I decided to take a look at some of my everyday cleaning supplies and see how the prices compare. Check out that post here! You can also find awesome deals on Personal Care Products (be sure to check out that post)!

Today's finds are kind of random. And if you're lucky, you might be able to get $15 off your $50 purchase, if your items qualify. I can't promise you the items below qualify, but some might@

1. Fragrance free laundry detergent (up to 100 loads in this bottle!) for $19.99 - and this product ships here free with a qualifying $49 purchase!





I found another fragrance free laundry detergent that ships to Israel - it's pricier per load, but it's sold by Amazon so it should qualify for that $15 off $50 deal, and that might just make it cheap enough!



2. Blackout curtains (!! seriously expensive here in Israel) for just $14.86 (major discount right now!) and ships here for free with your qualifying $49 order! 



3. Hanes zip-up heavyweight fleece hoodies start at $10.99 (some colors and sizes) and qualify for free shipping to Israel with a qualifying $49 purchase! I am so happy to find these, because 1) the price 2) quality issues with some I've bought here. These are one of those wardrobe staples for the "menfolk" in my house!




I've also found a lot of great shoes for kids that ship here with this deal! Totally worth looking! I also have found women's shoes for half the price my local store (check out the prices on Skechers - in some cases, they prices are just 25% of what I have found in local stores!)

I'll post more deals soon! There are so many products on Amazon!

Are you looking for other products? Drop me a note and I'll try to do a round up of products for you!
