Sentence: Janene is truly a twoferninny. Say the word sale and her eyes light up. Mention "half off" and she may swoon. It doesn't matter that she doesn't need it, if it is a bargain, consider it bought. Just last week she was practically giddy as she saved a huge bundle of cash on two gallons (a twofer) of kumquat juice.

Etymology: twofer (an item or offer that comprises two items but is sold for the price of one) + ninny (a foolish person)
