While I'm sure many of us are very excited for Christmas, it's clear we're far less stoked for the impending icy temperatures we're already preparing for.
With the cost of living crisis and all the extra Crimbo outgoings - we probably all want to find quick and easy ways we can save a pretty penny or two where we're able to - including finding a way to lower our energy bills.
Well, one woman has come to the rescue are sharing a simple hack to heat up your room without having to crank your heating up, and took to TikTok to reveal the easy trick. You can watch the video below:
"Stop draughts from ruining your winter! Energy prices are crazy, but we will keep you cosy," they wrote.
In the clip, they explain: "Watch this if your room is always cold. So much heat escapes through draughts in the windows."
To conquer the problem, the TikToker explained a brilliant way to stop the cold air from travelling through the cracks is to use draught blockers.
The adhesive sticker on the back of the draught blocker sticks to the window and prevents any draught from filtering in.
"They are cheap and easy to buy," The TikToker continues.
You can buy the draught blocker in a few different colours, so it's super easy to match them to your style of windows, too.
And other TikTokers were impressed with the idea, with some having used them themselves.
Meanwhile others opted for other solutions, such as duct tape, and some came up with their own suggestions for conquering a cold room.
One person wrote: "There's another way open the window on the side panel turn the circle to the right then lock the window. This will keep out the draft."
While another said: "Alternatively duct tape does not look pretty but does keep the heat in."
And a third added: "Get an alan key give the hinges a tighten then half turn clock wise on the closure bolts on the check of the window."
In other money saving tips, one woman who lives in a very cold part of the world revealed a trick to help keep the heat in and bills down.
TikToker @shay_creates explained that living in Minnesota means it gets very cold over the winter, and she's developed a useful tip for keeping the heat in during the chilly months.
The average temperature in Minnesota during the winter months of December, January and February are below freezing, with the US state being bombarded by snow, sleet and freezing rain during the colder months.
Shay explained that her family used a kit with a plastic sheet they could tape over their windows to keep things a little bit warmer during these tough months.
