Okay – so it is true, we did just experience record breaking warm weather this past weekend. And, yes it has been unseasonably warm the last couple of weeks. However, we all know that the weather changes like the flick of a switch. Today it might be 20C and tomorrow it could be 9C….sorry. So, as the boy scouts say (do they even say this) “always be prepared.” That’s what today’s post is all about…preparedness and saving some energy and money this winter.
Now is the time to make certain you have all the necessary winter gear. It’s amazing how quickly the mittens are taken off the shore shelves and replaced by shorts…even though it’s still freezing outside! And you can forget about getting a new shovel after the first major snowstorm…too late.
Pull out the quilts, duvets and wool blankets..adding another blanket to your bed can help keep your thermostat temperature lower.
Now, I’m not saying it’s time to give up on warm weather…it’s just time to start putting together your fall checklist of things to ready your home for the winter. What other things do you do at your house?
