Yesterday here in Indiana, it was 72 degrees!! Woohoo!! But today temps are dropping all day and we have chances of snow this evening!! Ugh! So as temps are dropping, I am starting a fire in our fireplace, and am reminded of yet another way we save money!
It's not a lot of money, but it is also using things we have on hand instead of buying.
We use cereal/ food boxes to start our fires!
When we get another box empty, we take the box and rip it into strips or pieces. You could then store them in a cute container or basket close to you stove, and have free fire starter! And unlike other fire starters I've tried, this takes a lot less work!
Even though it's getting warm here, we will continue to use this for our campfires!
