While we will probably be using paper for our first seder – since we’re having 24 people and only have a place setting for 12 – I am a big proponent of real dishes on Pesach.
Not only because you should use your “finest” things at your seder, but also because over the long-run it really will save you money. Not to mention that it’s a lot easier on the environment. If you’ve always just used disposable goods, this might be a good year to start investing in one set of dishes – either meat or dairy – and then save up for the other set next year.
Right now, Amazon has a number of Corelle sets on sale, including the Corelle Livingware Winter Frost 16-Piece Dinnerware Set, Service for 4 for just $24.87. (My husband would say that you could only use this set for dairy, since it’s all white!)
Or, if you want something a bit more colorful, you can get the Corelle Livingware Memphis 16-Piece Dinnerware Set, Service for 4 for $26.76. Both of these are priced $4-7 less than at Target right now, and shipping is free with your Amazon Prime or Amazon Mom membership.
With my rough-and-tumble crew, I really appreciate the indestructibility of Corelle, but if you want something a little fancier, Bon Ton has a great deal right now on Fiestaware. I love all the bright and cheery colors – I think Fiestaware is some of the prettiest, happiest ceramic dinnerware I’ve ever seen!
Right now, the five-piece set – which includes dinner plate, bowl, dessert/salad plate, cup and saucer – is on sale for $26.99. And, if you buy four sets (all the same color), you get the fifth set for free.
Plus there’s a 20% off code, cash back from Shop at Home, and free shipping. Cha-ching!
Here’s how to get the deal:
- Go to Fiestaware on the Bon Ton site
- Select four of the five-piece place settings – all four must be the same color – and the free 5th place setting should automatically show up in your cart
- Use the codes LOVEFREESHIP (for free shipping) and ECMFESTAF11 (to get an additional 20% off) at checkout
- Your total should be $86.36
- Don’t forget to click through either Shop at Home (for 3% cash back) or Ebates (also 3% cash back). Both sites give you a $5 bonus when you sign up for a new account and make your first purchase – so if you’re signed up with one, go with the other for the extra $5!
- After cash back, your total will be just $83.77. Or $78.77 if you get the extra $5. That’s as low as $15.75 per setting, which is more than 40% off the retail price!
Thanks, Cheapskate, for the details on the Fiestaware deal.
Are you planning to get some new dishes this year for Pesach? What other items are you planning to buy? I need some new knives and I’d love a new white table cloth.
