Instead of turning a heater on, or up, put on more clothing.

I'd like to suggest that you extend this to teaching others how to properly layer clothing for maximum warmth. This is particularly important for the elderly. Every year in Britain thousands of pensioners die of causes related to fuel poverty. They can't afford to heat their homes properly. Many use blankets to stay warm but when they move around are not dressed properly. Every winter my wife and I have to remind her mother to wear sensible clothing both when she goes out and in the house. She'll turn on the heat while wearing a thin cotton short sleeve t shirt and thin acrylic cardigan, no long johns, no cap. Meanwhile I'm wearing long johns, fleece pants, a long sleeve heavy cotton t shirt, a fleece overshirt and quite often a cap. Old habits die hard, if we weren't there to remind her, as we won't be next winter, she would wear what comes out of the drawer instead of searching for the right clothing for the conditions.

No matter how many times we suggest it I don't think she will ever wear a cap indoors.

It is just little things like this, that almost anyone can do, that have the biggest effects on our lives and our environment.

It's cosy having a nice blanket over you and your family in the evenings.

We do this, I sleep in 2-3 layers of clothes, (thermal underwear, fuzzy PJs and sweat pants) to keep warm at night, we heat our cabin with a wood burning stove, it's difficult to keep the fire going all night, plus we don't want to burn all the wood we have so it's better to keep warm with clothing. Don't worry, we harvest dead wood on our property, there is lots of it, we don't have to cut down living trees. :)

C Robb W., that's a bit of a turnaround isn't it? My mother was always telling me "wear a singlet!" or "put on a hat!" if I was feeling cold.

Give your dear old mum-in-law a warm hug from all of us next time you see her :)

I shut the heat off in the main part of the house about a month ago. I keep just the bedroom and kitchen on, it's just to cold not to.I love my warm flannel and cotton layers.
