# 5 Shurtape Metal Repair Tape
Why:Better than masking tape, this aluminum foil-backed tape sticks to any
surface and is a great practical way to tape down your kitchen counters for
What we love: The outside face of the tape is pure durable aluminum foil.You can cover the entire surface of your kitchen counter in this tape for astainless-steel look. Best of all, you don’t have to worry about ruining the surface during Pesach, by placing hot objects or cutting on it. And after Pesach, it’s pretty easy to remove.
Use: Cover the entire surface of your kitchen counter in this tape for a stainless steel look.
Cons: It is aluminum foil, and if you don’t wear gloves when you’re applying it,you can knick and cut your hands. It only works on hard, dry surfaces, like marble, granite, Formica, and wood. Do not use totape inside your sink.
Where to buy: Lowe’s or Home Depot, $7.58 for 50 yds.
Tip: When you peel the backing off, you can tell this tape is going to stick. Peeling
back about a foot at a time makes it easy to work with.
# 4 Rubber Bands
you need to do on Pesach.
Why we love: Rubber bands are better than tape or string to keep your
kitchen cabinets closed. Just loop the bands around the knobs in a figure 8.
Use: Close up plastic bags of all kinds — chips, raisins, nuts, frozen vegetables,
Where to buy: any office supply store or general store, $1 for 20
Tip: If you have limited storage space for cutlery, group together your non-Pesachdig knives, forks, etc. with rubber
bands, and store in plastic bags in a cabinet or closet, freeing up your kitchen drawers for Pesach items.
Why: Easily stackable and clearly labeled plastic food storage.
What we love: No more looking in cabinets for the covers that match your
containers. All tops fit every size container, and the labeling helps keep things kosher.
They are relatively strong, wash well by hand, and can last from Pesach to Pesach.
Use: These plastic storage containers are color coded and clearly marked as dairy, meat, or pareve, and each set comes with a
variety of sizes.
Cons: Not really microwave or dishwasher safe — we’ve found that after using in either machine the covers warp
and do not fit the containers well.
Why: Great compact storage for perishables, pre-Pesach, during
Pesach, and post-Pesach.
What we love: An extra fridge makes life easier in the kitchen, but
not everyone has space for an additional full-size refrigerator. The
Frigidaire 1.6-cu. ft. compact refrigerator, on the other hand, can
be stored at the bottom of a closet or in the attic when not in use.
Use: When prepping for Pesach, you have extra cold storage space for perishables. During Pesach, use the
space for leftovers and cold drinks.
Con: Mini fridges’ temperature regulation tends to be a bit inaccurate.
Where to buy: Lowe’s, $59

bottles and drinks for baby and mother
Why: All our hard work to make the best Pesach ever, our feet are killing.
This slipper is the key to pampering your tired feet. Wear them while you clean and you will feel less tired – I promise!

when we walk. Truly the most comfortable slipper that we have ever
put on our feet!

features constant air flow technology and is naturally contoured to cradle your feet. Durable and well made, they last for
quite a number of years.
Con: They’re not the most stylish — but who cares? We’re wearing them in the house! In fact, they’re so popular and
in demand that they are nearly sold out around the country. New shipments coming in right before Pesach.
