Dear Franny The Shopaholic: Can you tell me where I can purchase hanging flowering baskets? I need a dozen. — Carla G.

Dear Carla: Aldi has 10-inch hanging baskets for $6.49 each. You could also try Produce Junction on Tilton Road in Northfield.

Dear Franny The Shopaholic: I am looking for McCormick’s Meat Marinade for grilling London broil. I have not seen these envelopes in months. — Nancy

Dear Nancy: If you go on McCormick’s website you can purchase it, and it states the ingredients in it, just not the quantity of each one. The good news is it is not discontinued. I emailed you both links. This week, ShopRite has McCormack Grill Mates Marinade in the envelopes on sale for 99 cents or the spice bottle ones for $1, if you want to try one of those flavors.

Dear Franny The Shopaholic: I am in love with a beauty product called No.7 day and night cream. Are there any deals on it? I would always see coupons for it, but no more. — Jennifer A., Tuckerton

Dear Jennifer: This week at Ultra they have 20 percent off No. 7. If you use the coupon on the back of the store circular from Sunday’s Press, you will save another 20 percent off.

Dear Franny The Shopaholic: A while back you had a large, hard, plastic folding table in your column. Now I need one, is it still on sale? — Sarah J., Mays Landing

Dear Sarah: Staples currently has a 72-inch by 30-inch hard plastic table, regularly $64.99, on sale for $39.99.
