OK, this is so cool. It's Kotulas 4-in-1 Paper Log Maker, only $39.99 (free shipping). I want one for Christmas.
As you know, I have 300 boxes, many of them filled with stuff I wouldn't even care to scan. And most of the pages I do scan, I discard.
With this nifty little gadget, I can take my refuse flammables, soak them in water, slop the sodden mass into the little compartments, then press out the water.
Out pop four little logs or briquettes. Let them dry. Let them burn.
No need to pay for firewood. No need to pay for shredding services. It makes me happy: dissolving junk mail into mush, crushing it beyond recovery, burning it to ashes.
It warms the heart. And the toes.
