'Tis the season for bone-chilling cold in the Maryland area! If you find yourself in apartment this winter season and are in need of a few ideas for helping you stay warm, here are a few suggestions:
1. Space heater. An inexpensive, yet efficient electric space heater is a great way to make chilly apartments a thing of the past. Many come with features such as auto shut-off if the unit is accidentally knocked over, carry handles for portability from one room to another, and adjustable heat elements and fans. Using supplemental heat from a space heater for only the room you are using is a great way to stay warm and create huge energy savings at the same time.
2. Blankets. Investing in several blankets to keep around your apartment will ensure you stay toasty warm even during the coldest winter weather. With a plethora of designs and fabrics to choose from, there are no shortage of blankets to keep you toasty warm. Many modern blankets are made with microfibers which not only provide great warmth during the winter, but they are lightweight enough to use during the spring and summer as well. Blankets can be versatile, as they can be used to snuggle with in front of the TV in the living room, or used as supplemental bedding in your bedroom as well. Layers of soft, cozy blankets area a great, affordable way to stay warm during the winter season.
3. Hot beverage machines. A simple, single-cup beverage maker can be a welcome kitchen addition and will allow you to enjoy warm, comforting coffees, teas, or even hot chocolate during the cold winter months. Wrapping your hands around a mug of a wonderful, hot beverage is a great, enjoyable way to warm up in your apartment. A great thing about the beverage machines is the fact they make one cup of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate at a time, so if you have company, everyone can choose and customize their own drink!
These budget-conscious ideas will help save money while keeping you warm and cozy during the bitter cold of winter.
Never will you appreciate a clean, cozy, inviting apartment quite like you do after commuting back from the office through freezing rain and puddles of slush. Winter weather lends itself well to long days spent curled up indoors, and doing so in the company of a faux-fur throw, kicky print (framed, ’cause you’re a grown-up), or well-tended potted plant makes the experience all the more enjoyable. So rather than spend your money on another week's worth of sad desk salads, why not brown-bag it and put some of that extra cash toward stepping up your decorating game for the season ahead? If you're hosting a holiday party this year—or even just having a few friends by for mulled wine and Netflix—your guests will appreciate the effort.
