In the winter, bitterly cold temperatures can take a major hit on your utility bills. But what’s the alternative — freeze? Wear gloves and a hat to bed? It doesn’t have to be that way, though. There’s a really, really easy way to keep your home warmer and save money. You don’t even need to make a trip to the hardware store!
Roll a beach towel or an unused blanket up, and tie it together with a few pieces of fabric scraps or string. Place the towel at the cracks of particularly drafty doors and windows. Because anywhere from 5 to 30% of your home’s energy is lost due to drafts. This simple trick will make a big difference in keeping your house warm.
