Mission Organization: The Candle Edition

So the game is back on.  The weekly organizational challenges. 

This week we are doing candles.

I've been slowly purging candles from my life because they make my husband batty.

I'm down to a shoe-box sized container of candles and holders and I'm not replacing them as I use them up.  Most of them are seasonal so by this time next year I should be done with candles... anyone want to place bets on that?

I am keeping the three white-with-greenery candles in my bathroom.  I don't know why but I like them.  I might burn them.  And I now have two fake candles.  One in the bedroom and one in the living room.  I like them.  I kept a few pillar candles for Christmas... not because I love pillar candles but because I have these cute little Santa and wife decorations that go on pillar candles and they remind me of my Gram.  So they stay. 

I donated several good candles and quite a few candle holders.... including one beautiful and fairly pricey holder that reminds me of a time in my life I don't really want to dwell on.

My sister has and loves Scentsy.  Anyone have an opinion?

So, yeah for me.... progress.  Not perfect yet but making progress.

I use Scentsy. Still dangergous though as it's melty and hot, but oh, how yummy are the scents? My hubby the firefighter allows Scentsy.

I like Scentsy. With kiddos around, it's just as dangerous as an open candle -- and all that hot and melty can do ALOT of damage if it's not kept in a perfect location . . . . The scents are pretty good & last a long time -- which is great, cuz they aren't cheap :)

Definitely agree with what you stated. Your explanation was certainly the easiest to understand. I tell you, I usually get irked when folks discuss issues that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail right on the head and explained out everything without complication. Maybe, people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks.

I find this very interesting. In a way that you discuss it very well and easier to understand. This is the most important part of reading. On how you understand the thoughts. Thank you for this!
