Gas prices are lower here due to an oversupply of oil right now. Last time I looked it was down to $2.05 per gallon, which is much better than we've been paying this year.
We've been keeping the heat off for the most part except for the bathroom when taking showers. I like having a lower electric bill and keeping the heat off helps. Blankets, warm hoodies, socks and hot drinks all help in the process to save money.
Pictured above is a Cherry Pit Bed Warmer that I made last year. I first learned about them years ago in a book from Mother Earth News. We saved cherry pits every summer to be able to make this.
Last night I heated this in the microwave and put it under the covers at the foot of my bed. It definitely kept that part of the bed warm for a long while or as long as it took for me to fall asleep.
It definitely helps to save money by keeping the bed warm since I kept the heat off last night.
My Christmas cactus was in bloom for Thanksgiving this week. I think it bloomed early because it was unusually cold here for this time of year.
We sold our old dog house over the weekend. None of our pets were using it, so it was time to go. We earned $25 in the process.
We haven't been out of the house since last week saving gas money and wear and tear on our cars. My plans for now are to go out on Thursday as I have to work that day and do any errands afterwards.
