If you make yourself a few mason jar oil lamps, you’ll never need to buy candles again. It’s a simple project that only requires you drill a hole in the top of a jar lid, and thread a small piece of copper tubing through it. Then, thread a wick through the tube and fill the jar with the oil of your choice—olive oil works great, especially if it's already in your pantry. Refill whenever necessary, and add scented oils if you like.
