12. Save the leftover candle wax and make new candles.

And if you have a candle with more than one wick (like the Bath and Body Works 3 wick candles) light one wick at a time- the smell still travels well, but the candle lasts 3 times as long!ax and make new candles.

16. Shampoo less often-it's much better for your hair and will save you a ton of money!

If your hair gets greasy, use dry shampoo. I have curly hair, so I condition every day, and shampoo once or twice a week. Since I condition so much more often, my conditioner costs about $7 a bottle, and my shampoo (from Lush) costs about $30. I've had the same shampoo container for almost a year now because I shampoo infrequently.
