Thank you for the post! Having holiday guests over can be stressful, especially when your home feels a bit cramped any way. I like renting out a secure outdoor storage unit so I can move some stuff in there while people are over. This way the decorations have more room and so do the people.

FOCAL POINT STYLING

Besides caulking windows and weather strips at doorways, prevent winter's cold air drafts with insulation pads at light switches and receptacles - especially on exterior walls. (Sold at stores such as Home Depot & Lowe's).

Also: utilize layered window panels: stacked to sides during the day - open blinds/shades to allow sunshine to warm house during the day - in evenings, ensure windows locked (creates a stronger seal), close blinds, and pull over panels.
