Have you turned your heat on yet? My gas fireplace has come on a couple of times but I always wait to turn the furnace on until it gets pretty cold and then I set it at about 68 degrees. There have been a couple of winters where I have just used the fireplace because it has been so mild. Any tips for keeping your house toasty without blowing the budget?
Turning on the heat

Mine has been on for awhile now. We don't really care about what month it is, if we are cold, we turn the heat on. Melanie's room is freezing at night and she won't keep blankets on, so my house is set at 72 all the time.

Off and on for awhile now. I've had the heat on one day and the A/C the next! I hate to be cold but, can't sleep it if is warm and, I can't leave my windows open when I'm home because it is just too noisy!

DH prepared the furnace today. We turned it on and set it for what we keep it at. I have though had my portable heaters on for a few days now as I can't have it chilly.

We turned on the heat about 2 weeks ago when the temp in the house got to 60, but since I rent an older home, the walls are thicker, so the temp is at 64.
My Oldest's room has a drafty window that Hubby is fixing this weekend, but back in Detroit, our old house had radiator heat and drafty windows, with kids who moved the entire night, thereby meanging the blankets were on the floor. So in deperation, I put them in sleeping bags and they stay covered ~ YEAH ! ! !
