saving on the heating bill

Great job Krista!! This also taught your family about what you can do if you need to. To my husband that would just be "unacceptable" but to me it is "what I have to do". We are also a one income family and my job is to save money for the family, which is what you did. Great job to the

    _________________________________________
    My husband is very pleased with all I have done. We are a one income
    family. This past winter, they raised the price of fuel.. almost tripled.
    I insisted that the thermostat be set at 56*. We couldn't afford to pay a
    huge bill.. so why create one? We all wore multiple layers of clothing and
    in the worst of the winter, we live by the lake, we all slept in one bedroom
    and then turned on a high
    efficient heater for 1 hour to warm the room, and then had I got up a half
    hour prior to everyone.. and turned it back on for a half hour. At the end
    of the "season" according to the stores, I was able to purchase electric
    blankets from -12 for double and queen sizes.

    These run for only pennies an hour.. and we only turned them on to heat our
    beds. Then we didnt need the spare heater. All in all, we kept the bill
    down, electric and gas remained under $250 a month. The energy company
    actually accused us of cheating!

    I recommend a down comforter instead of an electric blanket -- which works
    even if the current is off. They make them hypoallergenic if you're
    allergic to feathers. I couldn't live without mine.

    We used a fleece blanket toped off with a down comforter. It was so nice and
    toasty. I also purchased down throws for the sofa, for when we were reading
    or watching tv. We keep our temperature set on 60 most of the winter.
