Make your own recycled paper logs with nothing but scraps and water

For those of us who live in more rural areas and have to rely either on fireplaces or propane or natural gas heating in the colder months, bills can skyrocket, and the hassle of collecting firewood can take up a lot of time which might be better spent doing other work. If you have excess paper laying around, however, you have a solution to your heating problems you might not have considered before. By shredding up that paper as finely as you can, wetting the paper in a five-gallon bucket, then pressing it with a log briquette mold, which you can pick up at any local hardware store, you can save yourself a bunch of time and energy, and minimize your waste by burning them instead of chopping a ton of wood.
