    Draught excluders for by doors.There’ss of different sites online that show you how to make them from bits you have at home.

    Black out blinds,keep the room warm in the winter and help keep it cooler in the summer they also help keep the early sunshine in the summer out of the bedrooms waking people up.You can but them pretty cheaply from argos and you just cut them to size.

    Curtains with lining you can buy them or if you want to save some money if you have a fabric shop near you you can buy black out lining for curtains and sew them into the curtains yourself.

    There’s also a clear film that you can buy to put onto your windows that’s supposed to be good at helping keep the heat in.

    For heat that’s lost from radiators place tinfoil(bacofoil type)cut some cardboard to size and then cover in the foil and then attach against the wall behind the radiator and it reflects the heat back into the room.

    Make sure there’s no loose or missing tiles on your roof as that makes a hige difference to lost heat.

    Insulate your attic if it’s not allready insulated.There are step by step videos online showing you how to.

    Make sure the hatch to your attic is well fitted any gaps will let the winter winds flow through your house.

    If you have wooden flooring,place some rugs down where people sit so feet are kept warm.

    Hot water bottles you can get from 99p stores and poundlands place one in each bed 30 minutes before people go to bed to make it nice and warm when they go to get in.

    With Heating put it onto a timer so it comes on for 30 minutes before everyone get’s up so you all get upto a nice warm home.And then so it comes on again when everyone’s going to have baths and showers for 30-45 minutes again so the house heats up ready for when LO’s are coming out of baths/showers.

    Make sure everyone has dressing gowns,slippers or slipper socks for first thing in the morning and the evening and blankets or throws for a dip in the temperature in the day or evening before the heating comes on.
