Don't forget as you are putting things away to make notes of what needs to be replaced, and what you have too much of. Every year I make a list of what to buy, thinking I will buy one thing a month so I don't have a huge shopping list. Of course, this year I forgot to print it until Rosh Chodesh Nissan. Needless to say, my list was huge.

Anyway, just wanted to share that tip with anyone who may be around now or later.

okay, so everyone can start stressing now:
ערב פסח יום רביעי 8באפריל
חג פסח יום חמישי 9באפריל
שביעי של פסח יום רביעי 15 באפריל

In Israel: Seder night is Wed. followed by one day yom tov, then Friday, Shabbat, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday to enjoy Chol Hamoed.
Shvii shel Pesach Wed., Issru Chag Thurs and then a regular Friday and Shabbat.
In chu"l, Thurs and Friday will be the first days and then Shabbat (oy). Sunday Monday Tues enjoy Chol HaMoed and then
Shvii and Shmini Wed and Thurs with Friday being issru and again Shabbat.

Now is your chance to consider moving to Israel to avoid another three day Yom Tov and to have a breather issru chag PLUS a Friday Very Happy

Is it my eyes playing tricks or do I see Americans posting on second day yomtov? Can someone explain this to me?

something must be funny with my computer. The posts by the Americans are all labeled "yesterday 1 am etc.". Isn't yesterday Motzei Shabbos?

Maybe my clock is off by a day!!!! I didn't really think Mamabear was posting on Shabbos Shocked

Today is Sunday. So yesterday was Saturday. Yesterday at 2 am means Fri night/ Saturday at 2 in the morning for us. Take off 7 or 8 hours and that means 6 or 7 pm on Friday our time, when I presume it wasn't yet Shabbos in the US.

I think my brain needs rewiring. Rolling Eyes

I thought yesterday at 1:00 was 18 hours ago. But clearly, NOT.

Thanks for setting me straight. Laughing

By the way, getting back to the original topic - it's a great idea and I even made a list this morning.

Now the trick is to put it where I'll find it next year. Embarassed

Chossid mom I'm with you, I thought my brain had fried when I saw "yesterday" for the Americans.

Yes, we are lucky in EY that we have a shorter chag and more enjoyable (because we are HERE!)

I tape it to the outside of one of the boxes so as I pull them out of storage the list is right on top.

I have a whole notebook- where I make a chart of all the products we bought and how much, how much we used, what we forgot, etc...

Like this year, I will write: Do NOT buy bulk pears, bananas and squash a week in advance. Most of the box will spoil before yom tov, and the rest, during. Rolling Eyes

I keep it where I keep my pesach boxes, but out in the open so I can just pull it out. (A notebook is also easier to locate than a list.)

We also put a list of shailos there with their answers (like I forget year to year if we eat cheese on pesach... we do.)

I make a list of the recipes that came out good (which cook book and what page #) and tape it to the inside of one of the pesach cabinets. That way
I don't have to try 3 different chocolate cake recipes before finding the one we liked the previous year.

My husband keeps a list of how much we bought, how many people were here, and how much is left over. Saves it on his computer and a week or two before Pesach he pulls it up and goes shopping a day or two before Pesach.

We went through 45 dozen eggs!! Yikes, and 50 lbs of onions! Yikety Yikes, and 100 lbs of potatoes, to name a few!!

Hardly used any carrots for some reason.
