  1. Great tips! I’m not sure I could keep my thermostat so low in the winter though 🙂 I keep ours around 68 degrees and it still feels too cold for me.

    I wish we could get rid of our cable, but my husband loves watching his sports, and it’s the cheapest way we can watch all of them. We do have the least expensive plan, however, and because we bundle it with our internet and phone service, we get a bigger discount.

    1. Yes, we do keep it chilly at our house but if it feel too cold, and on rainy days it can, I’ll start a fire in the woodstove it heats up the house really well. It’s great you bundle your services to get the bigger discount, every little bit helps.
