My wife an I love the day after XMAS to buy scented candles of all sizes and shapes from Wal-Mart. We purchased 144 of the 10 cent ones alone and 20 of the larger ones from .99 to 2.50. This wil last us a whole year. They are mostly gone in one to two days. We saw a farmer doing the same thing as us at noon for the same reason.
OUr church had candlelight service this tear AGAIN... we have over 2000 show up and I got all the leftovers. some new. They used to toss em. I bring them home and take the paper circle protectors off and brak some of the melt of the sides and either save them for later or melt them down into chicken/tuna cans and put thee wicks in them. I also use them to flux lead when casting. I also make some firestarters with a few...should come in handy some day for the price
