Rosh Hashanah budgeting got you pulling your hair out.  If you’re lucky, your employer might give you some shopping vouchers (Heb: tlooshim) and if so you can cut your Rosh Hashana bill considerably.

We’ve done the legwork, so to speak, with our online comparison.  Online shopping options are growing in popularity and are certainly the answer to busy homemakers. Supermarket online sites have improved considerably over the years but you have to know some Hebrew to navigate. Now is a great opportunity for you to learn some new words.

Rami Levy has the reputation of being the cheapest and Shufersal the most expensive supermarket. In our experience, Mega is the most expensive.   Victory also has a reputation of being cheaper.  There are plenty of other supermarket chains out there and we would love to be able to include them in this comparison but our  manpower limitations prevent it.  If you are willing to offer 10 or 15 minutes of your time to compare these exact items in your supermarket, send them to us and we will publish them.

Note: these prices, from their websites, are accurate as at August 28, 2018.

Availability of Merchandise

Before every Rosh Hashanah and Pesach, there is a shortage of fresh produce.  Prices of fruit and vegetables, in season, will rise.  Apples, pomegranates, and in-fact everything will sky rocket 2 -3 days before.  If you have a shuk (Eng: fresh fruit and veg market) near you, you might get cheaper produce.

Paying for your Groceries

We are not fond of paying for groceries on installments (Heb: tashloomim).  If you eat it now you should pay for it now – that’s our philosophy and this method has saved us thousands on food bills over the years.  There are two exceptions to our rule;  Rosh Hashanah and Pesach.  The Pesach grocery bill is astronomical and Rosh Hashanah is not cheap either. So we allow ourselves tashloomim for these 2 holidays only – 6 installments each.  As one finishes the second one starts.  

Chag Sameach! May you and your loved ones be inscribed for a good year, health and blessings.
