In my pre-Cheap Mama days I used to plop down a lot of money for candles and scented oils to make my home smell great but when you're on a budget those expensive candles just aren't on the priority list.
This is why I was pleasantly surprised to find that the line of Better Homes & Gardens fall candles at Wal-Mart not only has a line of great scents but the quality is also there as well. These candles and accessories fill my house with warm fall scents just as good as the expensive ones did.
The candles are priced just under $5 and there are also bricks of scented wax cubes that can be used in a tea-candle diffuser priced at $2 each.
$2 gets you 6 cubes that you break off and use one at a time. The great part is that they aren't a one-time use. I have used the missing cube for several uses. The wax will re-melt with each use and I keep using it until I think that the scent is waning.
Below is a candle and a cube in a diffuser which I purchased eons ago from Bath & Body Works. I added some small pumpkins and pine cones from my yard for a fall arrangement.
All of these can be found in the seasonal aisles at Wal-Mart so they probably won't be around forever. So if fall candles are in your budget, get them while the gettin's good as they say!
Here's to enjoying the scents of fall, Cheap Mamas!
