Wow! Thank you.
I was thinking of posting in the Israel thread but thought I wouldn't get too many responses.


Everybody in Israel, myself included, is going crazy over Amazon shopping with free shipping.

Office items, computer accessories. My Amazon order took 3 weeks to get there. Is there another website that I can order these items from in Israel, with quick delivery?


There is no such thing as quick delivery in Israel. Amazon packages shipped from the states are arriving more quickly than locally shipped packages.

To find out what's available with free shipping to Israel enter an Israeli address as the shipping address and it will show you items shipping for free. There is a $50 minimum for free shipping and it needs to be under $75 to avoid customs fees/VAT.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/prod.....psc=1

Its like a tiny crockpot, and melts the wax. It uses hard wax, so it rehardens in the pot for storage. It hurts much less than the strips I used to use, or than the wax that's removed with a cloth strip. And will pay for itself with just a few missed professional waxings.

And it works.

This looks great! To clarify, you spread on the wax, wait for it to cool, then pull off the wax with the trapped hair? No strips needed?

Yes. The wax cools and hardens in seconds, then you pull it off.

As I said, I'm obsessed with it.

I've never done a waxing by myself, but I am looking forward to trying - thanks for the recommendation!

Ok, here's what I ordered so far, lol.

Bunch of books before the craze started that I order anyway without free shipping.

Clothing for DH - dress pants, underwear, undershirts.

Clothing for myself (that I tend to order anyway but the free shipping is a bonus).

Dixie paper plates.

Dixie 16 oz paper coffee cups.

16 oz red solo cups, lol. Nostalgia factor plus they don't make that size here for regular drinking glasses.

A box of Kirkland brand plastic cutlery.

A cool mist humidifier.

Sun therapy lamp (yes I still have SAD even here and yes it's not fair!).

8x8 foil tins.

9 in round tins.

Ziploc bags!! Osher Ad seems to have stopped carrying them!

A particular Dove shampoo DH likes they don't sell here.

A bunch of small claw shaped hair clips.

Sheets for our American sized twin beds.

And we ordered a rug, that didn't have free shipping but even paying shipping we spent less than we would have on a rug that size here.

So basically, a lot.

Great list. Thanks. How often/close together can you order to Israel without raising the ire of customs? I want to order a whole bunch of things, but don’t want UPS or customs to flip out.

As soon as Amazon sends you an email that your order has shipped you can make another order.

What's the youngest age for the brain teaser wires?

There are some that are super simple and some even my husband and I can't figure out.
My 8yo and 12yo are obsessed with them and they're too hard for my 4yo so if I had to pick an age I'd say starting around 6.

Paper goods are key! Lol, it seems like everyone is ordering them because what trees does Israel have to waste to make paper goods out of? Then again, people are also ordering paper towels and toilet paper. Two ply Soft brand is good enough for me, thanks very much. Smile On the other hand, I do think Osher Ad is a smidge cheaper for the Kirkland cutlery so I think I'll just get it there next time.

I love you can tell that from a list! Smile Smile Smile Hey there!

Shabbat shalom ladies! Enjoy your fun stuff!

(Oh and the cat thinks the rug is a present for him. He loves the new traction he has on it compared to the tiles which make him scamper. Lol, aliyah was a big adjustment for him.)

Are you sure? The Customs website states that if shipments come too close together, they may be deemed one shipment.
