My husband and I keep our thermostat set in the low 60s. Since it’s just us, we figure that we can wear layers of clothing around the house if necessary and if we have company, we’ll inch the thermostat up for their comfort, but we try to keep our heating costs down.
So what do we do when our main family room (which also happens to be our basement) seems a bit on the chilly side? I wouldn’t say it is the strangest thing in the world, but it’s pretty darn frugal – we’ve bought some decaf coffee and usually at some point in an evening, one of us will run up to the kitchen to brew a pot. It instantly warms us and lets us keep the thermostat down low.
What are your frugal tips for staying warm during the winter?
