I love candles!
When I'm at home, there's always a candle or two burning. I think the expense is worth it, considering how delightful they make my house smell.
What I don't like is the waste when they're burned down.
What do you do with the jars?

Such a good question!
Well, if they are pretty or unusual and I can use them for a tea light or something else, I'll keep (but being very selective).
If they are just ordinary and not attractive on their own, I throw out.
If they are nice but I don't want to keep, I donate to Goodwill near us.
And considering the "purging thread," I do go through them every once in awhile and sort like above

I place battery operated candles inside which have a timer .
On the outside my friend glued some clear rhinestones so it looks snazzy and sparkles when the light hits them, and the candle is turned on.
I placed them in my livingroom wall unit, and everyone remarks how lovely they look either on or off.

I use quite a few of them in the bathrooms to hold cottbn balls, q tips, cosmetic pads, bath fizzies, etc. I have a couple on my vanity to hold tweezers, tiny parts to trimmerers, lipsticks, etc. I use a couple for some office supplies on my desk. I like them because you can see what you have in them. I used baskets for most of these same items but since I have the glass jars I find that it just saves a bit more time to find what you' need.

I usually don't buy jarred candles for that reason. Libbey glass makes great votive holders up to 6" for dirt cheap. I usually burn Root candles.
Hat Creek candles in WI makes specialty jarred candles with personalized lids that are adorable keepsakes.

Trash/recycle. I burn lots and there is no way I could keep them all. I've got three going right now. You should see my stash! Heck yeah they are worth the expense!

Great question @house_cat.
If they are nothing special, I store my small votives in them in my cabinet.
If they are nicer I keep them for little things like tea bags, or Keurig pods for storage.
