We also bought some sticky strips of foam and went around sealing some of the worst openings in doorways and windows. It seems to be helping.

We recently found out that we have open vents under the house from critters, and we are paying to heat the ground. harrumph. $500 in propane this last month.

I'm sure you can get free books from libraries, many libraries dump books weekly to make room for fresh, new incoming ones. I hear about that all the time. Talk to all your local libraries and find out what they do with old books.

But what about decluttering books? Isn't that the wrong direction? wink

Although I suppose I can just donate all the unwanted romance novels en masse to goodwill if i leave here.

If people are in essence throwing out books then they are now your free insulation. They are no longer books that you have to read - they are functional house-warming items.

And yes when you're done with the house, you can donate them back into the system smile

I really do love this idea. I hope more people will read this thread and give it a try for the colder rooms in their homes.

I do want to caveat that people should stay warm enough to be healthy. My Dad is concerning me by completely turning off his heat so he saves money - in March - but he's still buying plenty of beer.

Well the wheel keeps on turning and now it's time for me to switch gears to try to stay cool in my home!

Insulation turns out to be just as good as keeping the cool in as it did the warmth.
