Hello from Canada! Living under the poverty line makes life difficult for me to say the least, but I have many tricks to help me survive. One of those tricks is basic in winter. I wear two pairs of socks! One light cotton pair under a pair of wool socks. I combine this with a T Shirt, or two under a sweater. This keeps me comfy and warm in my apartment. I keep the thermostat constantly fixed at ten degrees and this save me money until spring arrives.
Have a Happy Holiday season and keep warm!

You say "fixed at ten degrees!" Oh my gosh! That is cold for even me! And I like the cold weather! I can dress for the winter better than the summer at my age! However, I am cranky and can't do much of anything when my house is at 50!
Even my finger don't like moving things around, like the computer keys and sewing machine! I would like to pass on that cotton close to the body isn't good in the winter! It keeps/traps the moisture next to the body when you are active and it can get very chilly. We learn that in Search and Rescue. Cotton is great for the summer, not so great in the winter. Brr! Keep warm! Really 10 degrees?
