I went ahead and orderod what seemed to be the most practical New Testament with Psalter; it arrives on Wednesday. Not in love with the theme and it seems to be (non-leather) softback, but the size, translation and price are right. And I can use the "helps" as a substrate to paste on prayer material.
Faith-Sharing NRSV New Testament with Psalms (Cokesbury)
If that doesn't do, I'll go for one of these.
