Sukkos! One of the most memory-making Yomim Tovim of the year.

The weather’s beautiful, school has gotten underway, the Yomim Noraim are behind you and so many enjoyable things are crammed into one beautiful, multi-faceted holiday!

Opportunities abound for great family fun:

Sukkah building, Lulav and Esrogim buying, eating and sleeping outside in the Sukkah, Sukkah hopping parties, decorations falling in the soup, that always-fail ‘shlak’ attempt that every man tries his hand at but can never seem to perfect, family Chol Hamoed trips, Simchas Torah dancing and more!

You know where to go to find the best family chol hamoed trips :), but here’s 10 helpful things you may not have know about for Sukkos:

 

Sleep in the Sukkah?

A few years back, I set about finding the ultimate products for sleeping in the Sukkah.

As a child and teen, we were always shlepping mattresses up and down the stairs at night and in the morning, and I said to myself,

“Self, there has to be a better way.”

Here is what we’ve found, mostly from trial and error, and what worked best from all of the options we tried.

You get the benefit of our tried and tested best Sukkah-Sleeping products!

You can buy ANY of these from Amazon, and have them in time for this Sukkos!

Here goes!

The BEST overall value Sukkah sleeping product hands-down was this Coleman ComfortSmart Cot.

What we loved about it:

  • The quick setup (literally seconds)
  • Comfort of the bed, has a 2″ mattress and spring suspension
  • Ease-of-use… our kids can open and close with ease
  • No multiple pieces to assemble or lose – a completely assembled folding bed & mattress.
  • Perhaps the best part – storage! When you’re ready to pack up, the cot folds up compactly to an incredible 5.5″ thick, and fits easily against the wall inside or outside of most Sukkahs.
  • Price (as of this posting) – only about $60 shipped from Amazon all told.

From the manufacturer: With the Comfortsmart coil suspension system and 2″thick foam mattress pad, you’ll feel like you’re sleeping in a bed. The strong steel frame will make sure you’ll always have a great place to sleep, season after season.

Note: the above version is suitable for kids and adults up to 5′ 7″ in height. For taller people: click this LINK for the larger size.


On a budget?

The BEST Priced BUDGET Sukkah sleeping product were these economical, lightweight folding camp cots, – very similar to the above, minus the spring suspension and mattress.

What we loved about it:

  • The quick setup (literally seconds)
  • Ease-of-use… our kids can open and close with ease
  • No multiple pieces to assemble or lose – a completely assembled folding bed & mattress.
  • Perhaps the best part – storage! When you’re ready to pack up, the cot folds up compactly to an incredible 5″ thick, and fits easily against the wall inside or outside of most Sukkahs.
  • Price (as of this posting) – just under $34 shipped from Amazon all told.

Continuing with your article...

These economical, lightweight folding camp cots make sukkah sleeping a snap, can hold up to 280 lbs, and are great for any outdoor use – perfect as an emergency cot, military cot, cabin cot, or even that unexpected overnight guest at your home.

Pros: Folds to only 5″ thick, quickest setup and takedown, weighs only 8 lbs, economical option at under $34 shipped!

Cons: No Mattress, so less comfortable than the options above. Still, tried and tested, and we use one very similar. Not bad at all for the price.

Comfort loving creature? This one’s for you!

 

At just 79.99 shipped (as of this posting),  the Zinus folding guest bed is the perfect sleep solution when you need it. The bed neatly folds in half, is lightweight, and easy to store in closets or under the bed. Mattress has only the highest quality of foam – foam is certipur-us certified for durability, performance, and content.

A great solution for Sukkos, hotels, bed & breakfast inns that often need additional sleeping accommodations, it’s also perfect for house guests, camping, traveling, sleepovers, and dorm rooms.

The downside… the shlep inside if it rains and you need to bring it upstairs… it’s heavier than the others, but the casters do make it easier. Also takes up more storage space,

but if you have the space, and can roll it right inside and out, this is the most comfortable option out there for the price!

 


 

Long gone are the horrid spotlights we used to use to light our Sukkah with, lighting some areas of the Sukkah while leaving others dark.

These 4′ LED fluorescent style linkable lights are the way to go, and with the enclosed chains, are easy as pie to use!

Get this 3-pack here for under $84 shipped – enough to light up to a 20′ long Sukkah!

 

 

Also available in single packs, double packs and other quantities.


Consider adding this 2 pack of 10′ extension cords for just around $10 shipped

 


This outdoor timer below is great for setting your lights and forgetting about them, particularly if you sleep in the Sukkah and need the lights off.

 

 

Here is a fantastic wire coupler protecter, so that you cna attache two extension cords or light wires together and keep the connection waterproof. Just a quick thought!


 

 

 

 

Have a great Yom Tov!

OPEN TONIGHT, Thursday September 28th at 6PM!
