Since we moved to a small town 4 yrs ago, that has no recycling program, I have been going out of my mind having to toss everything. (ok not my plastic stuff- WalMart takes that) And now that I have two kids in school, the amount of paper we collect is ridiculous! But while I was surfing pinterest for camping ideas, I came across a way to make paper logs!! So now I've got a bin set up in the mud room for all our paper/paperboard/cardboard items to go into! Once I have enough I will be soaking it all for a day or two in water, then squishing it into a form, and pressing out the excess water. Drying will take some time, but even if the weather is nasty, I can dry them in the greenhouse. I plan on making a bunch of these to take with us instead of a large amt of wood. I also have a bag to put all our lint and toilet paper tubes to make fire starters! I will try to update down the road about the process and using them.
