Of course you have, and as such your heat is probably on full blast. You may be staying in more (really using up that electricity, huh?) and perhaps you're taking more warm baths. (Hello, hot water bill!)
It's nice to stay toasty in the comfort of your own home when the temps dip low outside, but it's not so nice when the extra large bills start coming in the mail. Try staying warm and holding on to some of your hard-earned cash this season by following these easy tips in three big expense areas.
Egads, the Holidays are fast approaching! Whether you're a professional in the kitchen or just dabble at a few recipes this Holiday season, we can all use some great kitchen tools to get us through it all! So I posed the question to the DealPros: "What is your favorite kitchen tool to get you through the Holidays?"....and here's what they had to say:
This week, I may have possibly found the dumbest, most ridiculous, laziest, funniest thing in the entire world. I honestly don't know if any future blog post could ever beat this insane wacky product, because...well, I mean, there's really no excuse for this level of laziness.

A recent study showed that bed bugs take longer to find a place to bite on hairy arms vs. non-hairy arms. However, this doesn't mean that people who have hair won't get bitten. They just have more time to escape. If all this bed bug talk is starting to gross you out, here are some preventative measures you can take to prevent an infestation in your home.
... valuable and high-quality sets like these to complement any kitchen setting.
And the piece de resistance of this great gourmet-theme package is a $100 gift card from Cooking.com which you can use to spend on bakeware, cookware, cooking tools, cutlery, dinnerware, storage or small appliances.

I have four children under five--my house is a virtual
daycare! While we by no means have it all together, these
products have really helped bring some sanity to our lives.
