Baby, it’s cold outside!

Once December hits, it’s pretty much a foregone conclusion that the weather will get pretty chilly, and stay that way for a long while.

In fact, as we move deeper into winter, it’s likely to get even colder — it’s time to prepare for lots of frosted windshields and icy sidewalks.

Fortunately, winter is also the season of staying cozy inside, and we have a ton of helpful tips and tricks for making sure that, for you, the cold seasons are heavy on happy hibernation and light on battling ice, snow, and freezing temperatures.

With that in mind, we’ve come up with a few brilliant ways to keep the warm in and the cold out, using stuff you already have around the house.

Just like we saw with this clever draft guard made out of a pair of old tights, keeping your house cozy is usually just a matter of pulling together the right materials.

For instance, did you know that you can give your radiators heating power with just a couple sheets of tinfoil? Or that old kneesocks make great overnight cozies for your windshield wipers?

Trust us, there’s no way we’re all using the odds and ends around the house as efficiently as we could be, and we’re all a little chillier for it!

Scroll down to the video below to see a few of our best heat-saving tips, and don’t forget to SHARE with friends who love to hunker down inside and sip cocoa while winter roars on by.
