How Low Can You Go?

This is a picture of me (and Jay) sitting in front of the heating vent in my apartment. It's one of my very favorite spots. I can sit there for hours -- reading books, watching TV, talking on the phone or hanging with friends. But, in spite of all that, I have decided to turn off the heat for a week.

Today I read about the no heat challenge and I am inspired to try it for one week. I already keep the temperature pretty low, but this week I'll go cold turkey (literally.) Here are the conditions of this expeiment.
* The temperature must remain set at 40 degrees. (No frozen pipes.)
* All other ways of staying warm are fair game.

I know. You're all worried that I'll turn into a block of ice, but that is not the point of the challenge. The point is to stay warm and fairly comfortable without spending the money to turn up the heat.

So that's it. One week without heat, starting ... tomorrow.

Awesome! I think you're already pretty creative with keeping warm, but this should be fun.
