Have empty candle jars?🕯️

Consider cleaning them out to re-purpose around the house! I’m addicted to buying those yummy smelling Bath & Body Works candles from Hip2Save deals, and quickly noticed a collection of empty jars forming.

Instead of tossing in the trash, consider turning them into handy containers for small bathroom supplies, beauty products, craft supplies, and pantry storage. There are so many things you can keep in them!

The secret to cleaning glass candle jars is to freeze them for at least a few hours, and then you’ll be able to use a butter knife and crack the wax easily and remove. Trash or save the excess wax to place in a wax warmer, if desired!

To remove the labels easily, first soak the jars in hot soapy water, and then they will usually come off pretty easily. For removing super stubborn adhesive residue, consider using acetone or Goo Gone.

Tip: If there’s still a little wax residue inside the glass, place in the microwave for a few seconds to help melt and it will be easier to wipe clean.

Here are three easy ideas I was able to implement right away to re-purpose my jars…

1.) Bathroom Apothecary Jars

To create a q-tip and cotton ball storage for the bathroom, I glued these small clear glass knobs to the top of metal candle covers using e6000 craft glue. They look so pretty on the bathroom counter!

2.) Food Storage Containers

Use jars in the pantry to store smaller items such as nuts, rice, and coffee, etc.

3.) Candy Dish

As a fun holiday idea, use as a candy dish to hold mini candy canes or small chocolates!

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
