R Rated Post

I woke up to a lovely 15F this morning.  The problem with this is that I live on the Southern Gulf Coast.  This is me this morning:

Now we are up to 25F.  Rumor has it this is the last night we should freeze.  We'll see.   I am not a Damn Yankee, I do not miss winter, my right not to own a firearm, etc... I like my winters warm, I am spoiled after all these years.

Money Saving Challenge: Heating and Heater

I hope every one survived the holidays.  We have been below freezing now for the last few days.  The end of last week, we had to have our heat pump serviced and a part ordered.  It wasn't fixed until today.  We have been running on emergency heat which raises up our electricity bill.  We had been thinking about buying a heater to use during the day when only one or two rooms were in use so when I saw this, my mind was made up:

That purple tag on the bottom means 60% off and it works great.   There wasn't a charge for parts or repair on the heat pump.  I am a little worried about the electric but we shall see.  Keep warm!
