(This was originally posted last November.  Certainly worth revisiting!  You don’t have to let the bills shoot up just because the temperatures go down!)

Of course, if you live in a climate where there are piles and piles of that white stuff, you may still have to blast your furnace.  But, maybe you could turn it down a notch or two?  Every little bit helps, right?
