Save Money on Candle Making Supplies
Candle Making can be and is a great past time, hobby and even a fantastic business venture. The supplies for Candle Making are remarkably inexpensive, although the cost does increase over time. Although there are many ways you can reduce the cost of your Candle Making supplies, I strongly caution you not to sacrifice on the quality of the products you purchase, just to save a few dollars. This is extremely important for those of you who wish to sell your Candles. If the quality of your product goes down because you are purchasing wax and other supplies that are of less quality, you will end up costing your business money over the long haul.
Other Areas Of Importance
Keep a record of the Candle Making supplies you use. You should include the brand, the price, and the quantity of the item you get for that price. This will help you to compare the prices with sales you come across and know whether you are getting a better deal or not. Many craft stores have sales on Candle Making supplies before and right after the holidays. This is the perfect time to stock up.
It’s also a good idea to check online auction sites such as Ebay and Yahoo Auctions. They can often be an excellent way to find the same Candle Making products you are using at a discounted price. It may be that the seller doesn’t have the time to make Candles anymore or they simply have moved on to other things. Although on the other hand if you use a large volume of Candle Making supplies on a regular basis, you should consider buying them wholesale. You will pay a little more up front for your supplies, but overall you will save a considerable amount of money in the long run.
I recommend that you research wholesalers on the internet and compare prices. Many online wholesalers offer free shipping as well, that is another area where you can save money if you normally purchase your Candle Making supplies online. If you know others who make Candles as well consider linking up with them and buy in bulk and share the cost as well as the supplies. This is a great way for everyone to get a discount.
Some of the discount Candle Making products on the market are very comparable to the quality products you are already using. A good way to tell is to compare the ingredients. You can research the ingredients of each item on the internet. If the discount products contains all the major ingredients as the Candle Making supplies you are already using, then I would most definitely give it a try.
I recommend that you only purchase a few items at first to test the quality. Keep track of where you purchased the discounted item so that you can return to that retailer or online store if you are pleased with the quality of the products.
If you are making your Candles for your own personal use, containers and holders for your Candles are one areas you never need to spend a lot of money on. There is no need to pay regular prices for them. You can buy mason jars, glass votive holders and many other containers to use for Candle Making at thrift stores like Dollar Tree, the 99 Cent Store as well as garage sales for a very reasonable price.
On the other hand though, if you are making them for a wedding or other special occasion you will want to use only the beast containers. And if you are selling your Candles this is an absolute must.
The supplies you use in Candle Making can cost you a great deal of money over time. To save money on the quality supplies you use, take the time to compare prices both online and local retail sources. Always take advantage of discounts and sales throughout the year at graft stores as well as your favorite online Candle Making supplier.
Be cautious when looking at discount Candle Making supplies. You need to make sure they offer the same quality that you are already using. Finding Candle Making supplies at online auctions and buying them in bulk are also great ways to save money on your Candle Making supplies.
