Pretty soon, it will be time to put plastic up on our windows and buckle down the house for a very long winter. Taking measures to keep the heat in our home (and the cold out) really helps with our heating bills.
But all that plastic does cost money (we use the window size shrinking plastic sheets).
What I do is buy ahead for the next year. Usually around March the weatherproofing materials are on clearance at Walmart. That’s when I purchase our plastic. If I happen to catch them when they are really cheap I even buy more for another winter.
Right now, we are set for the next two winters for plastic. And the cost was $5.00.
Just keep an eye out and watch to see if those prices get marked down 😉
