BRRRRR!! Share Tips for Staying Warm BRRRRR!! Share Tips for Staying Warm

If you live in an older home with little or no insulation or a home with bad windows (I live in an old house with bad windows) you no doubt suffer for those first few minutes when you climb into bed.  

The cold weather is supposed to last at least until the middle of the week with a slight warming trend beginning Thursday so this cold bed issue will be with us for a few more nights.

Here is your Patch editor’s “Scuffy Skilmann” method for making that transition a more pleasant in this cold weather.  I have this great plate warmer I got about 15 years ago from my “kitchen-gadget” obsessed parents.  I unfold it and put it under the covers for about five minutes before going to bed. 

It also helps to have a cat sleep on top of the comforter.

What tips do you have for getting a bed warm before you climb in?  Tell us in comments.
