Get a Blanket
When winter arrives, grab those warm blankets out of storage and drape them on the couch and bed. Next time you’re in front of the television and feel a slight chill, pull that blanket around your shoulders or on your legs for some additional warmth.
Going to bed and you want to leave the thermostat low? Spread that extra blanket out before you climb beneath the covers for that feeling of total comfort without burning more heating oil.
