Linus Has a Frugal Tip With His Blanket Obsession

. at . 3 comments

Linus’ Creative Blanket UseHigh heating bills have forced me to turn the thermostat way down and be creative.

Electric blankets belong on the bed, right? Not in my house.
I got a clue from Linus. Like him, I transport my (electric) blanket with me from room to room.

  • Studying at the computer – blankie is with me.
  • Reading on the chair– blankie is with me.
  • Watching TV on the couch – blankie is with me.
  • Cold head? No worries, I won’t use it as a head covering.

Just be sure to read the safety tips for your blanket.
Below are a few of them.

  • Replace it if it’s more than 10 years old.
  • Don’t tuck it into the mattress.
  • Check it over for signs of wear, and broken/frayed cords.
  • Best to use it as a top blanket only.

Chip loves the blanket as much as I do. He’s  not too happy when I scootch him over so I can have some of the heat.

So, what’s your most frugal tip? Dawn  is collecting the best of our best tips here. Go on over and leave your tips and/or leave a tip here.

Also read here the list No Credit Needed (NCN) has compiled of what others believe is their best frugal tip. There are a  lot of good ideas. It took me a little while to come up with something not already written about. See anything you want to comment about?
