Dear Franny the Shopaholic: Any idea if Miracle Whip squeeze is still available? Haven’t found it for some time. — C.T.

Dear C.T.: According to its website, Target sells Miracle Whip in a 22-ounce squeeze bottle for $3.69.

Dear Franny the Shopaholic: Please find me a good deal on the cheapest laptop you can find. — Diomira M., Brigantine

Dear Diomira: At Walmart, you can get a 12.5-inch Ultra Slim Laptop with Windows 10 Home, a one-year subscription to Office 365 Personal, an Intel Processor with 32 GB storage and a front camera with a 10-hour battery for $119. I emailed you the link.

Dear Franny the Shopaholic: My child told me he was at a birthday party and they had some kind of a hose that filled a giant bunch of balloons at once. Of course, he wants me to get it for his party. — Carolyn D.

Dear Carolyn: Get a Bunch O Balloons at Bed Bath & Beyond for $9.99. It is an attachment for your hose, and it states it fills 100 balloons in 60 seconds. Don’t forget to use a 20 percent off coupon you can download at their website.

Dear Franny the Shopaholic: I know there is usually a half-price sale on Entenmann’s baked goods this time of year. Can you tell me when it will be at Acme, ShopRite or drug stores, such as Rite Aid. — Rose N.

Dear Rose: The only sale I can find on Entenmann’s this week is at Acme. The doughnuts are $2.99 a box. Quite often, Entenmann’s puts stickers on its baked goods that reflect half of the retail price printed on the boxes.
