I am now down to 17 candles!!! I’ve been using them all day long since we are now at home. My goal was to not buy any more for the rest of the year…or at least until candle day in December.

The last time I did a candle inventory I had 27 candles. I’m proud of myself for working on getting that ridiculous number down to a reasonable size.

I think in the future I will be keeping my candle inventory to less than 10 at a time. This should be more manageable especially if I live close to a store or can get to one in a short period of time.

I also tend to buy my candles online anyway to take advantage of the double cash back. I always order six at a time to have a balanced box. To keep my numbers low I will need to limit my purchases to only when I am down to about 3 left. This will allow me to be more disciplined as well and save some money!
