Inexpensive Fire Starter Ideas


Silver Post Medal for All Time! 255 Posts

We burn wood, and fire starters are not cheap. My husband laughs at me for some of my cheap ideas, but they work! I use the below in addition to the twigs and leaves and bark that are in the wood pile.

  1. I save dryer lint and stuff it into empty TP or paper towel rolls and use it to start a fire.

  2. Save empty butter wrappers (I first use them to grease cake pans). Store in a bag in the freezer until needed.

  3. Save paper towels that are used to clean up greasy pans or messes as above, store in a bag in the freezer until needed.

  4. Junk mail

My family eats a lot of fresh fruits and veggies so I store the peels and rinds in an old onion bag hanging in my pantry until they're dried out, our home stays on the dry side in the winter so it doesn't take long and then to the fire they go citrus is especially good they smell really nice drying and burning.

I would be cautious about using grease and lint in a fireplace/woodstove. While they are flammable, they could cause dangerous buildup in the chimney!
