RANDOM MONEY-SAVING NUMBER 22

Close your curtains!
During the winter months when it's cold, closing your curtains will help to keep your house warm, meaning you save on heating costs. If your curtains are longer than radiators underneath windows, then try to tuck them behind the radiator.
If your front or back door lets in a draft, consider putting up a curtain behind it to keep the cold air out too. You'll need a good thick one to stop draughts and hook-on linings can help with this - or buy old curtains from a charity shop and double up by sewing them together. You can use any left over fabric to sew a draught excluder "sausage" and stuff it with old tights, worn our sheets or any other old clothes (cut up) you may have otherwise thrown out!
