Fall has arrived on the wings of the wind. Here in Portland the breezes have been blowing and the drafts are finding their way under the doors, through the cracks and crevices, and into our house.
Every year, I make a simple "Draft Buster". It's my own little version of left over fabric sewed into a skinny, worm-like, bean-bag. I put the bag by the doorstops and it keeps the drafts from wiggling their way into the room.
All you need to do is take a long piece of left over fabric, it could even be an old towel. Sew up a seam, then fill the bag with seeds, rice, popcorn kernels, whatever you have in your cupboard. No need to go out and buy anything. My motto, "Use what you have".
Good luck and remember a little preparation will keep you warm and toasty this winter.
