In-house winter prep


First of all, you should feel blessed to have a roof over your head and a bed to sleep in at night this coming winter, because too many people around the world will not have such luxuries. But having such luxuries should not make you rest on your laurels. No, even though you have a home, it doesn’t mean that it is necessarily going to remain warm throughout the whole of winter. So, you need to ensure it is up to the task of housing you and keeping you warm the whole time. Something that you should do to ensure this is to make sure that your heating system works from the moment winter takes hold, to the moment it gives way to spring. First of all, check out the 4 Things You Need to Do Before Using Your Heating System This Year so as to make sure that your system keeps you warm as soon the frost sets in. Make sure to give it regular checkups whilst the harsh winds of winter continue to blow. And then, once winter has passed, think about bleeding your radiators to let out all the air that has built up over the past few cold months.


Out-of-house winter prep


Your home isn’t the only thing that you should prepare for winter; your motor should be prepared for it too. Specifically, you should ensure your tires are ready for the long fight they have in store as they contend with the icy, snowy roads of winter. You should check them for damage, wear and tear and generally terrain strength before the roads become an ice rink. By doing so, a life may just be saved this winter.


Winter clothing prep


First and foremost, winter is not necessarily about looking good. Winter is about wrapping up warm and protecting yourself from the harsh winter winds. It’s about keeping your fingers safe from frostbite. It’s about being warm enough to survive the possibility of being stranded, quite possibly in the midst of the snowfall. Basically, it’s more about being warm than it is being stylish. So, invest in a warm winter coat today!


And if you really want to save money, try buying winter clothing as soon as winter closes its doors for another year. Yes, it may be too late to do that in regards to the time of year that we are currently in today, but it is something to bear in mind come the ending of winter 2018.

Winter is coming, so down the hatches! Get your home, your car and your wardrobe ready for winter as early as you can; your future self will thank you for it.
