How To Use Junk Mail To Make Unlimited Free Firewood

Here’s a great grassroots life hack to make free firewood from the crap we get in our mailboxes.
Junk mail is a fact of life. Although annoying, we would probably miss it if we didn’t get any at all.

The problem is, while recycling efforts pay off in the long run, it would be nice to put this stuff to some good use sometimes.

Here’s a great and easy life hack that uses some simple tools: a couple of pails, a drill with an old saw blade, some water, and yes, all that junk mail. The end result is fire fuel that will heat a small home for a long time.

WARNING: Cooking food over junk mail is hazardous; only use this technique as a heat source, and assume responsibility for your actions when dealing with fire.


A few quick words of advice: there are many good cordless drills out there that have a lot of power. Any time you put a plugged-in drill and a pail of water together it could be dangerous.

Also, burning ads and paper that is heavily printed with colored chemicals is not good to cook over. Therefore we do not recommend cooking food over these junk mail logs.

Splitting logs is harder.
