Fall is well under way now, and for most of us that means cooler temperatures. It’s often a very welcome feeling, after the hot days of summer to feel the crisp air. But soon enough the novelty of fall wanes and the reality of keeping ourselves and our homes a little warmer becomes the focus.
Have you already changed your summer clothes for winter in your dresser and closets, putting away the swimsuits for next season and getting out the sweaters? Even for those living in the warmer southern states, usually sweaters and at least light jackets can be necessary on occasion.
How about your home? Have you made any seasonal changes there as well? Whether you live in a house or an apartment, cooler climates can bring higher utility bills and nobody wants that!
But here’s a great idea to keep those bills down. It’s easy and practical to keep your family cozy and warm through the cooler parts of the year without the need to mindlessly turn the heat up to higher temperatures. In the living room, it’s much more practical to invest in a couple of lightweight throws for the sofa or the recliner. These throws are available in a great variety. You will find everything from printed fleeces in wild animal prints to hand-crocheted afghans, and they look great thrown over the back of a chair while keeping it’s occupant toasty and warm. This season, keep your utility bills and warm up your living room with a few throws.
