Make your own "thermal draperies". I did this: I lined my regular pinch pleated drapes with see through plastic (the kind you put on your windows to keep out drafts) or you can substitute any other kind you may have just lying around; such as plastic shower curtains or table cloths, whatever you have that may not show through your drapes on the inside the room. You can sew, tape or staple the plastic onto the wrong side of the drapes and when the drapes are pulled shut, the house stays much, much warmer.
