Backpack Shopping

This post contains affiliate links. This means that if you click on a link and make a purchase, I may receive a small commission, at no additional cost to you! Thanks for your support! 

My kids' backpacks are all dead! So I decided I wanted to get new ones, and after much research, I decided to get Jansport bags, as they are super reliable and have an excellent lifetime guarantee!

So I checked local stores that carry them, and then I checked Amazon. And guess what?! I found some that are priced well, and at the time of posting, were eligible for free shipping to Israel with a $49 purchase:

Jansport Big Student Backpack 34L backpack (has a lot of pockets and can hold a computer!) -- some colors DO NOT ship free, so check carefully!

Jansport Cool Student Backpack 34L backpack (these are similar to the ones above but have a leather bottom - some may have a vegan leather bottom)

Jansport Cortland Backpacks are a little smaller than the ones above (25L)

And there are so many color options and a few other styles that ship here too!

And lately, my orders have USUALLY arrived well ahead of schedule - they seem to be building in a lot of extra delivery time to cover worst case scenarios, but most packages arrive much faster.

Amazon's prices change frequently but they're really great about letting you know if an item in your cart has changed price - so if you found one and deliberated about it, you'll know if something changed when you decide to complete your purchase.

Sometimes free shipping offers disappear, so please check carefully before you order. Just remember - you can avoid VAT and other import fees by staying below the $75 tax threshold for any single order! If you do go over, as you will if you're buying a computer, you will see exactly what you'll pay in taxes at checkout. I only do this if I'm actually buying a product that costs more than $75. And I don't add any other small things to these orders, because once you're over, you're over and you'll pay fees on the entire order.

For smaller purchases, I place separate orders that each total under $75.

If you're in the USA and buying a gift for someone in Israel, please follow those guidelines, too - or be prepared to prepay all taxes and fees. You'll see them before you checkout, so don't worry about surprises. You will need to enter the recipient's ID number at checkout too, so the package can clear customs.

Hope you found this helpful! If yes, be sure to find me on Facebook and join my shopping groups (here and here)!

Rosh Hashana Challah!



--- Retrieved from http://www.kosherfrugal.com/2013/06/sweet-whole-wheat-and-oat-bran-challah.html -

This is our Rosh Hashana challah. It's sweet and honey gives it a special flavor. This year we've noticed honey is more expensive than ever before, so I tried to modify the recipe and use a little less in order to help my kilo of honey go further. 
If you make this recipe, I'd love to hear what you think!


Whole Spelt Honey Challah

8 cups whole spelt flour, sifted (or 4 c. white + 4 c. whole)
1 cup oat bran  
1 T. salt  
2/3 cup sugar
2 tsp dry yeast
1/3 cup honey 
2-2.5 cups of lukewarm water*  
1/3 cup oil + a little more for oiling the bowl (I use sunflower oil most of the time)

Optional: 1 cup raisins (or chocolate chips for the non-traditional folk like my kids)

 *I find that the amount of water needed varies a lot - depends on the temperature and humidity in my kitchen on a particular day, and different batches of flour behave differently

Directions: 
1. Mix together dry ingredients (flour, oat bran, salt, sugar, yeast)

2. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add liquid ingredients (honey, oil, water). Mix well. Then knead. 

3. Coat the dough with a little extra oil and flip over a couple of times, so the bottom and sides get oiled too. cover with a tea towel to rise till doubled. On warm days, this can be about 1 hour, but can take up to 2 hours. Sometimes I leave it longer and it's fine, since there are no eggs.
 
4. Punch down, add raisins (or chocolate chips) if you like, knead again, and shape your challot. Cover with a tea towel to rise for about 1/2 an hour. (I usually make 3 challot out of this size batch, so I often double it!) These make great "pull-apart" challot in a round pan, which I find are much less work than braided round challot, and everyone loves them. Sometimes I brush the tops with honey or sugar mixed with some hot water before baking. You can do an egg wash (or egg and sugar) on them if you prefer that they get shiny, if you're not avoiding eggs.
 
5. Bake for 25-30 min at 220C

Allow to cool before you devour them.


These got a bit dark, but they are delish.

Enjoy your Honey Challot! Shana Tovah!

Shop the sales! (Grocery savings)

 For Israeli families, grocery bills represent a large percentage of their monthly spending.


And since food prices are typically on the rise, I thought I'd start sharing grocery deals again when I find them! 

So today, I was shopping at Rami Levy online.

And here's the thing - chicken was suddenly marked down! Yes, I had started to look yesterday, but suddenly today the prices went down. Maybe this happens more often than I realized?

I don't know, but either way, here are the chicken deals I found there today:



That is:

Chicken Wings: 5 NIS/kg

Chicken Thighs and Drumsticks: 14.90 NIS/kg

Chicken Thighs: 19.90 NIS/kg

Chicken Breast: 22.90 NIS/kg

Clearly I bought the first two - they limit you to 3 kg per item, so I ordered 3kg of wings and 3 kg of thighs + drumsticks.

There were also some decent prices for produce - so we picked up potatoes, onions, and purple cabbage for 1.90 NIS/kg, tomatoes and cucumbers for 2.90 NIS/kg, and a bag of avocadoes for 4.90 NIS/kg (but since I ordered that price seems to have jumped back up to over 15 NIS/kg). It's definitely worth checking for sales on Mondays and Tuesdays at Rami Levy online.

Happy savings! Let me know what you've found!

P.S. Some credit card "clubs" let you purchase Rami Levy gift cards for lower than face value. Check if yours does too, and save extra on your groceries!
