Thirteen Things you must have to Survive a Maine Winter
1. Smart Wool Socks
They keep my feet warm without having to wear sleepers and they are super comfy.
2. A Thick Sweater
I wear a sweater like the one below all most every minute that I'm home. It has a ton of pils on it but I love it anyways. It's warm, it buttons up to my chin so I stay cozy warm.
I never am without it.....NEVER. It's a must throughout the day. The cold weather is brutal on my lips.
4. Vicks Vapor Rub
Since my nose gets stuffy from the heat going so much, I like to rub a little under my nose before bed.
5. Puffs Plus
We buy these in bulk. Runny noses from the cold and long lasting colds that we catch must be wiped with something soft and durable.
6. Warm Boots
7. Assortment of Scarves
I like to prevent any type of cold drafts getting down my shirt so I bundle my neck with a scarf .
8. Mattress Pad Warmer
This truly is the best thing ever!!!
I don't think I will ever again go without one.
9. Heating Pad
I use it in the living room in my chair so I stay warm.
The kids love it too.
10. Travel Mug
Since a hot beverage is a must, I use my Starbucks Coffee Travel Mug daily. I often fill it with hot water, honey and cinnamon. This warms me up.
11. Lotion, Lotion and more Lotion
Cold weather means super dry skin.
It's a must to layer or you will have to listen to your teeth chatter.
Good for warming up your seat.
Throw a cat on your chest or lap and you have an instant warmer. Train your dog to lay on your feet, this is the best foot warmer ever.
Happy Thursday Thirteen!
