Save on Heating Bills in Winter Months

The following Everyday Savings Tip comes from, Toni:

Last winter I bought 10 clear vinyl shower curtains from the dollar store and tacked them around my windows. These are thick and fit most windows. I've even folded them in half for the bedroom windows and voila! Double protection! :)

These curtains are smoother and easier to put up than the traditional pricey plastic. Also I find that using tacks leaves very unnoticeable holes in the wall or window frame.

The best thing is not having to use the two sided sticky tape that takes forever to clean. The very best thing is that after removing the shower curtains, I folded them up and they're ready to use again!

Total cost for curtains and tacks is $11, and you can reuse them year after year!

    Might have to try that next year. I’ve been using bubble wrap on some of my windows this winter. Can’t see through it very well but all you do to put it up is spritz the window with water. And I can get it for free where I work!
