I was out doing some light Christmas shopping with friends and we wanted to stop by Bath & Body Works to see if we could get any good deals. First off – the store was crazy busy but that didn’t stop us, we just worked our way in. It was packed because they had a “Buy 3 – Get 3 FREE” deal going on. I also had a $10 off a $30 purchase coupon that I could use with the deal.
I found that the small candles were $10.00. I chose three of those for $30.00 and got three free. After using the $10 off a $30 purchase coupon, I got 6 small candles (20-30hr burn time) for $21.40! Or roughly $3.56 a candle or a savings of $6.44 per candle/38.64 total! Continue reading
What do we do with the numerous candle jars and glasses? I love candles, (see post from Bath & Body Works Candle Haul) but I wasn’t really sure what to do with all of the nice containers that they come in. Do you recycle them? Just throw them away?! (NO!) I started to sort of stock pile them in an empty cabinet waiting for my “aha!” moment. A couple months ago I saw a vlog where one of my favorite bloggers Kristen Gehm was cleaning out the bath and body works containers to use as storage. My immediate thought was DUH!?! They are a really nice size for helping keep things organized. Check out some of my favorite uses so far.
That seemed silly and not very attractive. They were a pain to fish out and the plastic was tearing around the top. I took them and put them in their own containers from bath and body works, a 3-wick candle and a mini candle. The other jar is a Swan Creek candle that I received as a gift – smelled like Ah-mazing cinnamon rolls that almost made you drool! This one I store some random items from my desk in. A measuring tape, super glue, and some label tape. These jars sit on my desk and while its still cluttered…that section of my desk looks a little bit tidier! 🙂
2) Bathroom Storage! I have two small containers of pony tail holders & bobby pins and another glass with my favorite flossers that fit perfectly in my medicine cabinet! I have another to corral my lip products. One that keeps my makeup brushes organized, and another that holds cotton rounds that I use for everything from nail polish remover to eye makeup remover and toner!
I absolutely love bath and body works! Who doesn’t?! Actually my favorite part of the store is their candles which I adore. I have loved candles for years but do recognize there is a difference between some brands and the way the burn and the amount of fragrance they throw.
I’ve been eyeing those emails from Bath & Body Works for a couple weeks with their daily “special” – and while I was sort of tempted, it wasn’t until they shaved another dollar off their 3-Wick Candles that I caved!
Here are two that I am anxious to burn…once I finish my current candle of Apple Blossoms (I don’t remember the brand, I bought it at a going out of business sale for dirt cheap).
I picked up Mahogany Teakwood & First Bloom. Mahogany Teakwood smells like a good men’s cologne with a hint of lavender. (The kind of guy smell that can make a girl swoon!) And First Bloom is a light mix of fresh cut flowers – I picked up immediately on plumeria, but also has peony and apple blossom.
