It's starting to get chilly. (We actually wore socks to bed last night.) So that means that we're going to have to turn the heat on soon.

A draft dodger snuggles up to the bottom of a door or window and blocks out any cold air the might creep in or hot air that might creep out.
You can buy them. Or you can make one. They're very simple to pull together, even if you aren't too handy with a needle and thread. In fact, GreenUpgrader has some super easy instructions for how to make your very own draft dodger.
