When my bestie and I moved into our first stadium together, instantly I knew it would take a bit of task to stay comfortable in the cooler weeks. Our first night enjoying a film after lunch together on the couch, I felt a freezing draft on my neck from the window behind us, then my bestie noticed it too, even though I told him not to worry about it and that I would take care of it. So once the uneven temperatures got colder in the latter half of fall, I used my day off to pull off one of the cheapest but  most effective energy saving tips there is: putting up plastic over your windows. I don’t mean a drop cloth or saran wrap. You need to go to the store and buy the plastic recognizably sold to go over windows and unused doors in the Winter season time weeks. This plastic is pretty easy to apply, it just takes time to get it right. All you have to do is apply the double sided tape to the edge of the window frame. Then you press the plastic firmly and tightly over it so there’s not air getting in from the outside. After that, you just take a blow dryer to it to shrink it down. Then when you’re done it doesn’t look love there’s anything there at all. My bestie was so confused when he came lake house as I was blow drying the last window of plastic. I couldn’t guess he had never seen this done before! I told him he would thank me when the utility bill this Winter season was nice and low.
