To save getting scratched when bringing in fire wood, I keep the sleeve of an old sweatshirt beside the door. It is quick to slip over my arm as I step out to grab an armful of wood. We don't like to store more than a couple of extra logs inside because I am very allergic to bug bites. We have one of those carriers but with our small house we feel it works better for us to bring in a couple at a time.
Using the wood stove saves us right at $100 a month and using the dead wood helps clean old trees up, making room for new growth. The man we get our wood from is retired and what little he makes selling us wood helps him makes ends meet, so we are glad for that. What we can save on our nation's energy helps us all.

He who cultivates his land will have plenty of food,
but from idle pursuits a man has his fill of poverty
