Make It Yourself Monday: Camping & Survival Tip! How To Make Your Own Fire-Starters!

Monday, June 3, 2013


I think everyone who has gone camping has been in the position where no matter what you do you just cant get a fire going!

Well I have an awesome "Make It Yourself Monday" tip that will make sure you will never have that problem again!

Here is what you will need:

:: Laundry Lint

:: Toilet Paper Rolls (without the TP)

That's right it's that simple! And I love that this reuses items that you would normally never have a use for again! I mean what would you ever reuse lint for normally? 

Just stuff the tubes full of lint and save them for when you go camping. These are also great to put in your emergency kit!

I made a cute little camping kit for a friend and included these in it, she is now going to make sure her family doesn't throw away lint anymore. Laughing

Our family loves camping so be sure to look out for all sorts of awesome camping tips and tricks in the next few months!

About Mamas Spot

We are a family of four that left it all behind to go travel the world. No, literally we left it all. We sold all of our possessions, packed what we could into four suitcases and said goodbye to suburban life. All we own is now pulled behind us as we travel to new and exciting destinations. Showing our kids the world and teaching them about new cultures, food, and ways of life is now our 9-5.

We love watching our kids learn, and learning along side them. Together we have now explored many new countries, visited family on the other side of the world, and made memories that will last a lifetime.

Welcome to our journey!
