Make fire starters at home from simple household material - egg cartons and vegetable shortening.  No paraffin wax and no molds.  These homemade fire starters are very quick and easy to make, cheap and very effective - much more convenient than newspaper or dry leaves.  It's a great way to recycle old cardboard egg cartons, too.  While not necessary, paper, other bits of cardboard, wood shavings, etc. can be used as filling if available.

Note: these can be a little greasy when the weather is warm.  They're best stored in a container in a cool place.
