I read this info at the blog (link provided at the bottom of this post.) Since most of us are in the throws of a cold winter, any ideas about staying warm while keeping the electric company out of our pockets is welcomed. I typically see electric blankets on clearance after Christmas. So if you can wait a week or two you might get a great deal on something that can save you a lot of money.
Electric blankets and pads cost little more than many non-electric comforters, and only use about a nickel's worth of electricity per night to operate. Yet according to the U.S. Department of Energy, for every degree you turn down the heat during the winter, you'll probably save about one to three percent on your total home heating bill.
Next on my list of favorite books is the "Fablehaven" duo. We're just reading the second book, Fablehaven, Rise of the Evening Star. We love, love, love it! The third book is due out next year.
My favorite children's series. Just finished reading the sixth in the Charlie Bone series to the girls. 'Charlie Bone and the Beast' is the title. We all loved the books, and are listening to them on tape in the van.
