It’s that time again-whether we love it or dread it, the holidays are upon us. For a lot of us, that also means it’s about to get so, very cold.
The kind of cold that keeps us in bed, or in the hot shower. Lucky for us, there are some cold weather hacks to get us through these months. Even better, most of these tips use materials that we already have around the house. For those of us who can’t afford a complete renovation this list is perfect.
