Don't forget these important, basic principles of shopping online from Israel:

  • Keep your order under $75 to avoid paying VAT!!
  • Spread out your orders. If you want to buy more than $75 worth of items from one website, and you have the option of splitting your order - DO IT. BUT don't order more than $75 worth on any given day to the same shipping name/address/ID. If you do, customs may combine your orders and charge you. Give it about 3 days between orders. Best to ship to a different name using a different ID for customs, so you can order it all on the same day.
  • Always look for the free shipping option - usually it's to a pickup spot.

I was so excited when my order came to $74.64 after the discount was applied, and with free delivery! Talk about maximizing savings while avoiding import taxes! I hope you're just as successful!

Enjoy and happy savings!

Today's one of those days when I feel like curling up with a book but I actually have too many things to do to let my day slide away like that. So instead, I'll let you know what's on my night table and bookshelf right now.

To be fair, there are many, many books on my bookshelves.

So lately here are some of the titles I've picked up:

Moral Disorder, by Margaret Atwood

The Tenth Song, by Naomi Ragen

The Lost Symbol, by Dan Brown

Catch the Jew!, by Tuvia Tannenboim

It's a super eclectic list, isn't it?

Many of these titles are eligible for free shipping when you buy $49 worth of items from Amazon!

Some of these titles will likely show up on the Book Swap Shelf outside my house in the coming weeks, as well. So if you're local, come by and take books!

Great Laptop Deals

Some people have been asking about ways to find a laptop for less. And sometimes, especially when you find a price drop, you can save a lot of money on your laptop purchase if you buy from Amazon, even with the import fees.

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.

Here are a few that I found that seem worth looking at more closely:

HP Pavilion 14" touchscreen convertible laptop (over 25% off)

HP Pavilion x360 2-in-1 14" Touch-Screen Laptop (5% price drop)

ASUS VivoBook 14 Laptop, 14" with 1TB SSD

Winnovo WinBook K146 Laptop, 14 Inch Laptop Computer - very low cost computer, suitable for a "Kids' Computer" (17% price drop)

VGKE B14 Windows 10 Laptop (very low cost, but also has a $30 coupon right now!) 

If a Chromebook meets your needs, there are a number of them in the super-affordable range!

NewASUS - Chromebook - 11.6 Inch

2022 Newest HP Chromebook 11A G8 Education Edition (5% coupon available!)

HP - 11.6" Chromebook (Refurbished) - this one comes out to somewhere around $100 TOTAL, making it the perfect choice for the super budget-conscious shopper! 

If you decide a higher end laptop (like this Lenovo Legion 5) is for you - you can also save a lot by doing a self-import from Amazon. However, there are a few more steps to getting it to your door - but the shipping agent designated by Amazon will walk you through it! You will need to fill out some forms and be careful to fill them out correctly. Once that's done, your laptop will be delivered to your door!


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)!
