Open House: How Do You Keep Cozy on Cold Winter Days?

While it's actually gotten down to freezing in California this Winter, usually we don't have to deal with really low temperatures, like many of you do in the rest of the country. Still when the temperature dips into the 30s, I always compensate for the chill with a few tried-and-true measures. Before showering, I always turn the space heater on and close the door to the bathroom, so the room gets nice and toasty before I bathe. I also pull out extra throw blankets to use in the living room, and find a heavy quilt to lay on the bed. The power of wool socks should never be underestimated, either!

This week, I gave you some tips on how to lower your Winter heating bills, but I also want to know how you can keep your home cozy at the same time. So tell me, what are your tips and tricks for keeping a cozy, warm home this Winter without cranking up the thermostat. Share your ideas in the comments!
