Friday Quick Tip ~ Fire-starter

These are the easiest fire-starters ever.
I thought I was so clever when I figured this out 
only to find out that it is a really old trick.
Oh well ~ they work!
Also, they are keeping just that much more out of your garbage can.
Simply stuff your dryer lint in your empty toilet paper tubes.
It's easy to have a little container or basket of some sort near the dryer.
As the rolls are emptied, that's where they go.
Each time you clean your lint screen it gets stuffed in a roll.
Save these for winter and you're set.


May your hearts and homes be warm.
Wishing you each a blessed and merry Christmas.


  1. wishing you a happy christmas time, good idea the fire lighters but do not have the luuxury of a dryer

  2. have a lovely christmas and new year good idea for those lucky enough to have a dryer

  3. Slick as can be! We will use that trick for our firepit this spring. It is under snow now. We did have our traditional Christmas Eve pizza. I can't believe you remember that. Always fun to chat.

  4. Oh, wow! What a great idea! It may be an "old trick" but I didn't know about it either! ;-) Thank you for sharing at Tuesdays with Twist LINKY PARTY! -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures

    Happy New Year!

  5. I didn't know about this either. My husband buys little fire starters all the time, so this will save us a ton of money. Thanks for sharing on the Homestead Blog Hop!
