Don't you just love home projects that take like...less than 10 minutes? :) Well, it's your lucky day, because I'm going to tell you about something we just did to winterize our home a little more--and it was fast and cheap!!
Have you ever seen these outlet insulators before?
I found them in the electrical aisle at The Home Depot (you can find them at other hardware and retail stores as well), and this entire package was less than $3! It's enough for 7 outlets and 3 switch covers. You can actually lose a lot of heat (and let a lot of cold in) through your outlets , specifically the ones on your outside walls. These inexpensive foam insulators will help winterize your home, and won't break the bank, or take a lot of time. Even here in Texas, the weather is getting colder, and this was any easy project that we completed in less than 10 minutes!
I even took a little video of my cute husband installing one of the insulators, so you could see how long it takes. We're talking 15 seconds per outlet, people. FAST.
I first learned of these at one of my Celebration of Service events with The Home Depot, and I'm so glad I did!
