      What things do you to keep warm in the winter indoors and outdoors?

      I myself during the winter usually find that when I am outdoors wearing a jumper and a coat helps me to keep warm aswell as a scarf and gloves, if I am in doors I have a snuggie that I use (big blanket with sleeves) when I am cold, I will have the heating on if needs be and I will drink plenty of warm drinks :)

      For outside on really cold days I have thermals :)
      Inside I'm usually ok with just a jumper on

      I have a really nice winter coat that keeps me warm when I am outside. Add my boots to that and I can stay pretty warm unless it's really windy or something. Inside I wear hoodies and turn up the heat, or cuddle with my dog.

      Hoodies are my favourite to wear on a cold night or during the day if I am cold, usually when I wear a hoodie indoors to keep warm my cat becomes my ultimate best friend :D and we snuggle to keep warm.

      When outside I wear a coat or hoody; or a combination of the two. When I'm inside I tend to crank the heating up and will sometimes put a jumper on. My youngest puppy likes to sleep on my feet when I'm sitting down so that keeps them warm :)

      We do not have winter here but when it was rainy season specially if there are storms and near Christmas season (also a cold season), I do wear jackets or long sleeves. I would sometimes wear thick shirt and the jacket to feel warm when outside.

      If I'm going outside, then i would simply wear many layers of warm clothing. However, sometimes it's very chilled in our house during early morning. During those times, i wear a sweatshirt and sweat pants or fleece in the house and that makes me feel very warm. Usually i'll boil water on the stove for a few minutes and that takes the chill off the air. Drinking hot tea also helps me warm up.

      So to keep the cold at bay, I'd wrap myself in blankets, put on slippers, and sit by the fireplace in the winter. XD

      Don't got a room heater, you're fortunate to have one. Expensive much?

      They can be but it depends :) I have a small portable one that I use sometimes and it didn't cost me too much the only downside is they are run on electric which can run up if you use the heater alot.

      I'll wear warm clothing, or use a snuggie to keep warm if i'm in-doors. Outside, same thing, warm clothing, a nice warm coat, if need be, gloves & a hat that covers my ears. :)

      This is the same one as I have now, really heats the room up and if you have all doors closed and there is no draft after turning it off it keeps the room warm for a while

      No, I was actually quite surprised :) I think the bigger you go for heaters though the higher you will have to pay in the end which is understandable.
