Old Man Winter

Since Old Man Winter refuses to go away, here are some go green tips to keep you warm this winter.  Instead of turning the heat up when you are cold, put on an extra layer of clothes and snuggle under a blanket instead.  Eat hearty, nourishing foods like soups and stews that will fill you up and keep you warm.  (Bonus points if you freeze your leftovers to eat another time). 

Make sure there aren't any drafty windows in your house.  If there are, you are basically paying to heat the outside of your home.  Epic fail...

Before you put in new caulking or stripping, take the time to remove what is already there.  This will ensure a better fit for the new materials.

Keep your blinds open during the day to let light in.  Doing so will help heat your home for free. 

What are your favorite ways to stay warm while going green?
