Better Fuel option?

Out of curiosity, what is the better idea to store? I have fire starters that I have made and waterproofed that are very easy to make from materials around the house that normally get thrown out. Is it better to keep a bunch of these or to buy a bunch of 1# propane bottles?

Depends on what you're looking to do. If you're planning on using a propane stove then the bottles would definitely be better but if you're looking to actually start a wood fire then I'd go with the fire starters since they'll almost definitely take up less space than the bottles. A compromise might be best and keep some of each on hand. A propane camp stove wouldn't be a bad idea since it can be used indoors but one of the white gas stoves might be better since I understand they can be run on a few different fuels (I've never tried it).
