Candles Anyone?

(part 2 of what's behind the blog title is coming soon, i promise)

i was reading the rules of living in the student housing that we are moving into in 6 weeks, and it mentioned that burning candles is prohibited. i'm sure its becuz its a safety hazard and i don't have a problem with that. BUT ... i do have a ton, yes a ton of candles! what to do?

so if you knew that you weren't going to be able to burn your precious, sentimental (some were gifts), fragrant candles for 2 years what would you do? pack them up? do they stay good packed away? sell them? some are half way gone others haven't been lit, i told you i had a ton. give them away to someone who appreciates candles? burn them all up in the next 6 weeks!? ha! i think hubster would have a fit if i did that. any other options?

have you ever had to dispose of a certain something when moving somewhere?

Having just moved, here's my two cents:

I would sort through them. Any that are real favorites or sentimental, I would store. Everything else I would give or donate. If you have new ones in great shape, you could try consigning them or something.
