Open House: How Do You Keep Cozy on Cold Winter Days?

While it's actually gotten down to freezing in California this Winter, usually we don't have to deal with really low temperatures, like many of you do in the rest of the country. Still when the temperature dips into the 30s, I always compensate for the chill with a few tried-and-true measures. Before showering, I always turn the space heater on and close the door to the bathroom, so the room gets nice and toasty before I bathe. I also pull out extra throw blankets to use in the living room, and find a heavy quilt to lay on the bed. The power of wool socks should never be underestimated, either!

This week, I gave you some tips on how to lower your Winter heating bills, but I also want to know how you can keep your home cozy at the same time. So tell me, what are your tips and tricks for keeping a cozy, warm home this Winter without cranking up the thermostat. Share your ideas in the comments!

One thing that really helps lower heating costs - if you have a guest room you rarely use, close off the vents in there and keep the door closed. As far as keeping warm, always make sure to dry your hair as soon as you get out of the shower, always wear socks around the house, and drink lots of hot tea and cocoa!

LOTS of blankets. Fuzzy slippers w/ soles (so that your feet never touch the cold tile or hardwood). Warm sweaters/fleece. Hot Tea/ decaf coffee. Small room Heaters. In our bedroom, we put a Heating blanket on the bed, run a small heater for an hour before bedtime & run a humidifier while we sleep.

Fire in the fireplace, cozy flannels, wool socks, cozy slippers, hot tea, a book (classics are cozier, no?), and maybe some hot thick soup (chili, split pea, potato cheese, chicken tortilla). And of course, the ultimate cold day remedy- long, hot bath!

Fire in the fireplace, something cooking in the crockpot, maybe cinnamon buns in the oven (or some other bread product) all helps for a cozy home during the winter.

Wool socks, a fire in the fireplace, blanket made by my grandmother, cup of hot tea, and a good book = super cozy day
