Surviving the Winter With a Thermostat NaziPosted: December 13, 2011
Today, I was discussing my recent morph into a thermostat nazi with a friend. She stated, “I don’t know HOW you keep your thermostat so low [64 degrees]!” Here’s my survival tips for those of you who live with someone that watches the thermostat as fiercely as I do:
1. Utilize a space heater. (Please make sure you are following ALL safety rules if you decide to do this!)
2. Plug-in in a heating pad. Use one when you are reading, typing, studying etc. It will keep you toasty.
3. Cozy up to your pet. I currently own one of the most cuddly pets in the world. This is GREAT when it’s cold outside.
4). Check the utility bill every month. The savings you glean will spur you to press on.
Do keep in mind that we are a childless household…We are ABLE to keep our home at a cooler temperature at this point.
