Wilmington DE (PRWEB) July 3, 2008
As the news of large retailers and national restaurant chains closing under financial hardships prompted by the weakening state of the economy takes center stage, it becomes crystal clear that more and more Americans are tightening their financial belts during what has officially now been referred to as a recession, foregoing unnecessary shopping and dining out. And as more and more people opt to save money enjoying meals at home, creating a unique atmosphere – including anything from romantic to relaxing, becomes a must, and a new website called CracklinCandles.com shows how to do this with great ease, and within a very realistic budget.
Using any of the debuting website’s handpicked candles - from jar candles and soy spa candles to crackling wood wick candles and natural cotton wick candles, creating a mood or specific atmosphere is as easy as it is affordable. What’s more, site visitors can use the supporting information on the website to help choose candles they are perfect for any environment or occasion.
One visit to http://www.CracklinCandles.com is all it took for to convince busy wife, mother-of-two and full-time South Carolina schoolteacher Ashley Walker to find the confidence she needed to create a restaurant-style atmosphere at home. Using wood wick candles and some small candles she placed in votive holders, she turned her dining room into the perfect setting for a memorable 5th wedding anniversary celebration with her husband.
“We are cutting back on expenses as is everyone I know,” Walker says, “But this doesn’t have to mean sacrificing special times with those most special in our lives. It took little time and money to make one room in our home fit for even the most significant celebration with candles. I also saved money by using coupons at the grocery store and then I felt like the little money I spent on a nice bottle of wine wasn’t such a splurge.”
Since the celebration dinner, Walker says she has shared the website address with family and friends and has ordered scented candles and even fragrant reed diffusers as gifts – for housewarming presents, birthday presents, and even holidays presents.
“Candles and the natural looking diffusers seem to please everyone and because they are so portable, my husband and I move them from room-to-room, regularly enjoying them with a glass of wine or just end-of-the-day conversation after we put our boys to bed.
I know in the back of my mind that we are staying in and eating in more to save money, but thanks to the atmosphere we easily and affordably create with candles, it doesn’t feel like we are missing out on anything, which is a real bonus.”
Walker also likes using aromatherapy candles to infuse a clean scent through her home, where she says living with two young athletes and a husband who spends his leisurely time out in the summer sun golfing, fishing or riding his bike with the boys, all too often smells of dirty clothes and shoes.
“It takes a bit of imagination, a quick visit to my favorite candle website, and then a flick of a match and our home boasts a nice designer touch, smells cleaner and, best of all, can be the stage for any atmosphere I want to create,” she adds. “And I am certainly saving money without feeling like me and my family are forced to give anything up, which is the real goal right now.”
