I don't know about where you are, but cold weather has set in here! Not really cold yet, but still enough to want some heat in the mornings and evenings. I can usually get by with a sweater and some activity in the mornings, but by evening, when I'm tired and really don't want to mop the kitchen just to stay warm, I cave and turn up the heat.
So far, so good. Gas prices haven't really risen that much over time and I'm not paying any more now than when we first moved in here. As a matter of fact, I'm paying less each month because I've learned this house and how to manipulate things to stay comfortable with a minimum of heat. I came across a post in a "permie" forum the other day which was interestingly extreme. I'm a sucker for those types of ideas. Although I don't do them all, I love to read about them. I can't help but admire people who just go ahead and do things like that. Most of the ideas make sense. Kind of.
However... most of us are not going to lower our ceilings or try to heat a room with incandescent light bulbs, as interesting as it may sound. Most of us will opt for more common, traditional ways to stay warm this winter. Dollar Stretcher has a page dedicated to winterizing a home and keeping heating costs low. I suspect that we'll find more ways that we will actually use to save on heat there.
