Re-purpose items – save money

and the environment.

So I had a machine that had different attachments to cut cheese, veggies, ect.  I hardly ever used it.  Especially after the kids left, as I got it mainly to buy blocks of cheese and shred them, cheaper then buying it already done.

Now I do continue to work with candles, so, I took the grater and found out I could use it to shred my wax to make it melt quicker!  Woo hoo!

You would be surprised what you can come up with when you put your mind to it.

And with the candles…. I have a friend who gets candles all the time, but we noticed they never burn down to the bottom of the container.  So I scrape all the left overs out , then I put in UNSCENTED wax, this will hold the wicks up and doesn’t burn, so then I remelt the scented was that was at the bottom (usually takes 2 or 3 candles) and re-pour over the top.

I am able to reuse all the glass candle jars and the wax that was left over in them, upcycle baby and save yourself some cash!
