I was so cheerful when our roommate and I went shopping and saw our favorite home goods store had finally restocked for fall. It’s been getting honestly chilly in the air, and he and I are trying our best not to touch that temperature control. The more than one of us just had our oil tank filled for the long Wintertide ahead, and we’re determined not to turn on the heat for anything less than below chilly un-even temperatures, or a blizzard. However, the frigid rainy weather has made it believe positively raw. We’ve tried taking sizzling baths, however even those the two of us need to do in moderation. Our oil boiler heats both the home the two of us rent and the sizzling water the two of us use. If he and I want to get through the worst of the Wintertide before filling the tanks for the oil furnace once again, the two of us need to be cautious with the sizzling water too, then fortunately, he and I found a great budget-friendly way of doing so–heated blankets! Since neither of us have the money for a area furnace at the moment (though the two of us put particular models on Christmas lists to our parents) a heated blanket is a great way to keep hot separate from turning on the oil heater. I remember our mom used to warn our heated blankets were dangerous, however they’ve genuinely gotten a lot safer over the years. The 1 the two of us purchased even has a timer. So, if 1 of us falls asleep on the couch, the heated blanket will shut itself off. I’m hopeful the heated blanket will keep us nice and toasty, and save us money on the oil furnace in the long run. Maybe we’ll get lucky and Santa will bring 1 of us a area furnace this year too.
