We have had some super cold weather lately. Unusual here in NC for there to be so many cold days in a row. A little concerned about the electric bill but feel thankful at the same time to stay warm!
One thing we did yesterday was bring out our small oscillating electric heater. That thing is AWESOME! We bought it a couple years ago for the bonus room and have since replaced it with an electric fireplace (awesome by the way) for that room. We are now using the small heater for the living room where we are most of the time downstairs. (Where our son likes to play.) What a world of difference.
My husband went out and bought some inexpensive weather strips for the side and front doors to help seal it even more. All of these simple things have helped already!
We still want a nice storm door for the front...but with a baby on the way...it will have to wait. :-) Good reason!
