No kids at home? Do you have a wood burning fire place? Ours is gas, so firewood was out. How about turning them vertical and placing a container on top for a natural bird feeder? Or turn to Craigslist and sell the wood for a small price. To be frugal is to pause and ask, how might I extend the utility of this. In our case, fallen tree branches are perfect perches for our kids. And once they outgrow them, we'll work them in as natural bird feeders.
Any ideas come to your mind? If so, please leave a comment and share.
