Instead of buying wicks at a craft store when you're making homemade candles, make wicks at home. when making a wick, make sure it fits the type of candle you're creating; if a wick is the wrong thickness, the candle won’t burn correctly. Thinner braided wicks are for smaller candles, and thicker strings are for bigger candles.

I totally did this shamefully in the dark when no one was watching for years.  I feel so vindicated.  And smart.  I feel much better about spending a bit more than is reasonable because I get such milage out of it and the better quality scents are less harsh and cloying.
