Florida is under a freeze warning, AL, GA, too. Dixie is cold today. The tip(s) for today is how to stay warm.
When you are using the oven, baking or cooking something delicious, turn off the oven but leave the door open when you are finished. The heat will help warm the kitchen instead of escaping up a vent.
We have a garage with a entrance into the house via the laundry room. The laundry room is always a different temp over the garage and the house. We leave the door into the laundry closed year round. It gives insulation between the colder temps of the garage and the house. It also is a buffer in the summer helping the house stay cooler.
Finally, one of the coldest things about winter is waking up and putting on a cold housecoat, shiver. When I was a child, my mother would turn on the oven, heat up our housecoats and bring them to us when she woke us up for the day, no such thing as central heat back then, those days are long past. Now, I put my housecoat in bed with me, under the covers. I leave it there all night, pull it out in the morning and slip it on really fast, warm, not cold, ahhhh.
The thermostat is at 68 and we use blankets when we are watching TV, socks, warm clothes, too, when we are up moving around the house.
Finally, to keep water pipes from freezing, open the cabinet doors before going to bed.
Do you have a hint on how to stay warm, helping save money?
