how to keep your heating bills LOWER this winter

DSC_0003 DSC_0004

I’ve posted about this before. I hate opening my heating bill & seeing most of my money disappear. I spend a great deal of time in my art studio, most of us spend most of our time in one room. If that one room has no fireplace. Make a portable one. I went to the dollar tree & filled my cart with candles…about $15 dollars worth. I keep this fireplace in my art studio most of the time & close the doors…it will heat the room to a cozy temperature…if i exit the room, i am hit with a wall of cold b/c i can keep the thermostat low. I have the candles on a tray so that i can bring the tray O’ fire into the living room, as shown here. The kids & i snuggled under blankets & pillows to watch movies…about 30 minutes into the movie, we are too warm for blankets.

Lower your gas bill & heat your (room) home for a few dollars a month. Besides, it is a waaaaaaayyy nicer way to heat the room then having your heat on, watching your dollars heat the ceiling.

      Works like a dream, jr cline! I found unscented candles at Hobby Lobby for less then the dollar tree & i am so excited to have all my hodge-podge collection gone, so that i can replace it with my new ones. Thank you! ~amy

        Being in an RV a candle “fireplace” is perfect. I’ll check Hobby Lobby. 😀

      It is wonderful. I love a good fire, but i’m too afraid to light my fireplace. this is so much better & so much prettier to have right in my studio to paint by. Now i don’t have to be so afraid to open my heating bill every month. When the kids are in school, i keep the thermostat at 66 F. but my studio is in the 70s! ~amy
