Keeping House Warm In Winter
If you’re looking for keeping the house warm in winter tips then you really are in the right place. I’m all about cheap ways to heat your home in winter and I hate spending money so you know they work well! Tips on keeping your house warm in the winter don’t have to cost a fortune and if someone is trying to get you to spend a fortune, look somewhere else or find a better quote!
I’m going to talk about some home remedies for cold situations, and what you can do to keep warm at home and keep the cold out of your house or flat.
Thermal curtains are an amazing way to keep the heat in your home. They can be a little one on the higher end with the price tag that comes attached but they are worth every penny. Have these closed and the hot air won’t be able to escape the room. They come in all shapes, sizes and colours as well so they’ll fit with all your decor.
If you’re looking to heat your home in winter without putting on the heating all the time, thermal curtains are a great place to start, they’re also really good for blocking out the light too. Keeping your house warm this winter? Get thermal curtains!

Lastly, this won’t work for everyone, but if you are a pensioner or get certain benefits, it’s worth seeing if you can get £140 off your electricity bill this winter with the Warm Home Discount scheme. Every electricity supplier has different rules – check what your supplier offers. It’s always worth taking a look, even if you’re unsure! Any little help when heating your home in winter.
Making Home Cooked Meals
This might sound a little strange but if you’re looking for cheap ways to heat your home in winter, cooking is a great one. Not only will you hopefully be eating healthier meals but by using your cooker you’ll be heating your home, even if it is the cooker and surrounding areas so maybe not the whole house.
If you’re looking to heat your kitchen in winter, you don’t have to cook really complicated meals to make it happen. An example, this Slimming World Macaroni And Cheese Recipe is super easy to make, heats your kitchen and tastes great.
It’s important to fill in the holes. You’ll find that hot air escapes and the cold gets in under the doors, which is why you need draft stoppers to stop that from happening. Imagine it like you’re shutting the window but it’s under your door instead. I love draft stoppers, you can get some really cool designs so if you have a decor that you’re trying to aspire to, get one that suits.
I mean look at this really cute dog draft stopper! Who wouldn’t want him keeping the house hot this winter?
So this isn’t really a way in which you can heat your home for less but it does keep you warm. I have a whole host of blankets and throws in my house. We have Disney ones, normal ones, weighted blankets and more all because they keep you warm in the winter. It doesn’t matter if you’re using it for an extra blanket in bed or a throw to cuddle up on the sofa with when watching TV, it’ll keep you warm.
The one below is an example of one you can get but don’t let that be the one you get. I will say the more you pay the more quality you’re probably going to get which means you’ll be even hotter in the winter with a thicker and warmer one. If you have a throw, I’d love to know which one!
This might not be the cheapest way of heating your home in winter but having a small heater can really help. If you’ve got your throw on, a draft stopper in place and thermal curtains pulled tight you should be all set but just in case you can have a heater going to keep the room nice and hot.
I have a portable heater that I can move into different rooms if I so wish, there are some energy-saving ones out there so you might not even need to spend that much on electricity bills. Do your homework and find the best one for you.
So there are some top frugal tips for keeping warm in the wintertime while you’re at home. I hope these ways to keep warm have helped and that your flat or house isn’t a freezer. As you can see there are a few ways to keep warm and I make sure to practice them all! All these things to keep warm and without having to spend a fortune, amazing!
I like to light candles as well. Some people say they don’t heat up the room at all, I beg to differ. The thing is, even if it doesn’t give off that much heat; it makes you think differently. They also smell amazing and can really pick up your mood.
