Dear Franny The Shopaholic: I was wondering if you know where I can have a cassette tape transferred to a CD? — Lucille C., Marmora
Dear Lucille: Go to Walmart and get a DigitNow cassette converter for $16.99 and do it yourself. If not, I emailed you quite a few services that will do it for you, but they are much more expensive.
Dear Franny The Shopaholic: Hi! I am looking to replace four outdoor chair cushions, any deals? — Paulette D., Wildwood
Dear Paulette: Starting at $6.99 each, the Christmas Tree Shops have indoor/outdoor cushions advertised. Save an additional $10 off a $50 purchase with the coupon in their circular, which is valid until Feb. 23.
Dear Franny The Shopaholic: I am looking for an old security camera to put outside. I called a security company to see if they would sell me one, but they wanted me to pay for the service each month, which I can’t afford. —Arnold
Dear Arnold: Your best bet is a garage or yard sale. Check The Press for them usually starting in Friday’s or Saturday’s paper. However, I did find a Mock Solar security camera for $19.99 at Walter Drake. Either call 800-525-9291 or online at wdrake.com to purchase it. It states it is weatherproof and because it is solar it never needs batteries.
Dear Franny The Shopaholic: I am searching for a rolling cart, the kind hairdressers have in the shops, with the three open baskets. I went to a beauty shop website, but sooooooo expensive. — Candice L., Egg Harbor
Dear Candice: Get a SALT bath storage cart for $39.99 at Bed Bath & Beyond, and it rolls. If you have their circular it is pictured in it on page 14. On the back of the store’s circular is also a coupon for $10 off your purchase of $30, making your cost $29.99. It looks exactly like the open carts at the beauty shops.
