I am the worst at starting a fire. There. I admitted it. My husband constantly scoffs at my attempts to start a fire without his assistance and it drives me crazy! I hate buying those fire starter logs because, come on, I’m trying to save money and warm our house with the fireplace, not spend more money on fire starters!
I’ve recently found several great articles on making my own fire starters and by spending little to no money!
Lint Fire Starters
With just some dryer lint, cardboard egg cartons and leftover wax from candles or crayons, you can make your own lint fire starters.
Pine Cone Fire Starters
Other Ideas for Homemade Fire Starters
I also found tutorials for these herbal fire starters that I will definitely be drying herbs from my garden next year to try as well as these fire starters made from wood pellet kitty litter. Not interested in making your own homemade fire starters but interested in buying some? You can always purchase these fire starters on etsy.
