11 Winter Hacks To Get You Through The Season

Winter is just around the corner. Are you prepared? Here are 11 winter hacks to keep your sanity and help you get through the colder months.

1. Keep warm with a cup of hot coco. Change things up a bit by trying out these 10 creative hot coco recipes. (SheKnows)

2. Keep the heat inside and the cold outside with these DIY thermal curtains made from old comforters found at your local thrift store.  (SustainABlog)

3. Insulate your windows with bubble wrap. Just cut the bubble wrap to size then spray some water on your window to help the bubble wrap stick. (no source found)

4. Waterproof your shoes with candle wax. Rub the wax over your shoes then use a hair dryer to melt the wax onto the fabric. (DIY Projects)

5. Fill balloons with water and food coloring then place them in the freezer or outside if it's cold enough. Once frozen cut the balloons off and have fun. (1000LifeHacks)

6. Keep warm with these no-sew heating packs using rice and essential oils. (Unsophisticook)

7. If it's below 32 degrees, go outside and blow bubbles and watch them turn to ice. (1000LifeHacks)

8. Leave your oven door open after baking. Let the warmth from the oven heat up your home a little more. 

9. Switch your ceiling fan so that it spins clockwise and set it on low. Doing so will take the warm air that rises and push it back down to you. 

10. Place wadded up newspaper inside of wet shoes. The newspaper will wick up the moisture leaving your shoes dry. 

11. Park you car facing east so that the morning sun will defrost your windshield.

  1. This is actually a list I can affordably use! Some of these ideas are ones I had forgotten about (bubble wrap and frozen bubbles), but the rest are ones I wish I had thought of or read of sooner. I love the idea of using the old comforters for thermal curtains, and can't wait to make the marbles for my porch steps. This list is short and genius, perfect for a Michigan winter. Thank you for sharing. Blessings from Port Huron, Michigan, USA.

    1. Thanks for stopping by Susie. I don't do cold weather so I would probable freeze to death in Michigan! So glad you found some helpful tips.
