Half a tart, twice as smart!

I tend to think of home fragrance as a sort of a splurge.  Martha Stewart says that a clean home should smell like nothing, and who am I to argue with Martha?!

But at the same time, there’s something so festive about a wonderful home fragrance, especially this time of year.  I’ve started to notice that some wax tarts are a bit too strong for our space, at least during that first day you melt them.  So my solution?

Get out that butter knife and chop them in half!  Just the right amount of scent, and now I can use it twice as long!  I’ve even started chopping some of them in fourths and combining different scents!

It’s not the sort of savings that will pay for the kids’ college or anything, but it does make me feel resourceful!  It’s the little victories, right?  I think I’ll put in a new fragrance right now!

P.S. Oh, yeah!  Look!  I have an actual tart warmer now, thanks to my sweet sister-in-law!  Anybody remember when I set a cup on pilot light on my stove and called it a tart warmer? #foreveracheapskate
