Weekly Roundup: Baby it’s cold…inside

562867117_48bc3d9b3c_zHappy Friday Dinks.  I need some help.  You know I love our new apartment.  I really do!  But we’ve been here a month and a week now and IT’S COLD.  I need some tips on how to keep Nick and I from freezing into icicles – and it can’t involve turning on the heat.  We are paying for hydro now which includes electricity, hot water, heat and A/C.  Our first bill for the first 16 days we lived here was $65 and we didn’t turn on anything, that was just basic electricity consumption.  YIKES!

Maybe it’s because we have hardwood floors maybe it’s because we have a brick wall or maybe it’s because we have old windows.  I’m honestly not sure.  All I do know is that we’re freezing and I need some money saving tips on how to stay warm.  Please Help!

Enjoy these posts from our friends.  Have a good weekend Dinks.

I’ve found that hardwood isn’t terribly cold but tile floors are frigid. The brick wall and old windows are probably the culprit, plus if the apartment is old or formerly an industrial building
it is possible that there is very little insulation. I suggest warm socks and flannel PJ bottoms for lounging. Flannel sheets on the bed aren’t very sexy but they sure are cozy!
