Dear Franny The Shopaholic: Where can we purchase clear Christmas storage containers? We have a lot of packing up to do! — Pam & Joe S., Seaview Harbor Marina

Dear Pam & Joe: Walmart had quite a few to choose from starting at $4.38 for a clear 17-quart container. Home Depot, Lowe’s, Big Lots, Michaels and Kmart also have sales on clear storage containers.

Dear Franny The Shopaholic: I am looking for Quaker Puffed Rice cereal. Neither ShopRite nor Acme is stocking it anymore. — Ron S.

Dear Ron: Funny, I checked the Quaker Oats website and the Puffed Rice picture is on there. However, when you go to where to buy that product it is not on there. I am guessing they stopped making it? Anyway, sells it, but it is out of stock on there, too. Walmart sells a knock-off brand, so I emailed you the link for that. Check the dollar stores; usually when a product is discontinued they would sell the end of it.

Dear Franny The Shopaholic: I have been unable to find Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime Lemon Jasmine Tea. I used to always find it at ShopRite in EHT. I frequently shop at locations in EHT, Galloway, Hammonton and occasionally Somers Point to no avail either. I recently have looked in Walmart, Mays Landing and Target. I do see it on Amazon, but would rather go to a local store, please help! — Jeanne A. W.

Dear Jeanne: According to they sell it, but hurry, they only have four left. You get four boxes of 20 teabags for $24.38. I don’t know if that means they have four boxes or 16 boxes left. So if I were you, I would order all you can get if you like it. It sounds like it’s going to be discontinued. I emailed you the link.

Dear Franny The Shopaholic: Please find me a deal on compression socks for my husband. — Janet K., Egg Harbor Township

Dear Janet: This week at Walgreens, Cooper Fit Compression Socks are 25 percent off. Men’s Compression socks are $4.49 at If you sign up for their emails you get an additional 10 percent off. I emailed you the link.
