frugal home heating tips, how to keep warm this Winter.

?When colder weather approaches everyone should look around their house to see if there are any holes or open spaces that need to sealed. There are many things you can do without spending a lot of time or money. Follow these tips to help keep the heat in your home and stay warm this Winter:

  • Seal windows, doors and holes with plastic, foam and insulated foam pieces

  • Get new windows if you can afford to or buy one at a time
  • Get a heated blanket

  • Turn the oven on to help heat that area of the house, let the oven get hot, then open oven door and sit around oven or in kitchen nearby
  • Pile on the blankets
  • Get a nice pair of wool socks
  • Get a nice pair of slippers or house shoes
  • Put on a sweater or layers
  • Put on a cap, hat or something over your head to keep your head and ears warm, most warmth is lost through your head.

  • Make some hot chocolate or another hot drink like coffee or tea

  • Make sure your filters are changed frequently.

  • Weatherstrip your windows
  • Close the doors to rooms that you do not use often so you are only heating the area you stay in the most
