It's a Challenge!

So I'm always trying to find ways to save money, pinch pennies, conserve resources.  Well over at Crunchy Chicken there is a major challenge going on this winter.  This is the fourth year of the challenge and this year I have jumped in feet first!

It's pretty simple you make a pledge to lower your thermostat.  Even if you lower your thermostat by just a degree you will use less energy and reduce your carbon footprint.  What's better than that.  On top of doing what's better for the environment and your pocketbook when you sign up for the challenge over at Crunchy Chicken you will have a chance to win some great prizes.

So I've made the following pledge:  We have always kept our thermostat relatively low.  We are going to keep the main living level at 62 during the day and 58 at night.  The other levels will be set to 55 unless we plan to spend time on those levels and then we'll revert to the main living level temperature.  We'll turn the bedrooms up to 60 at night.  Sounds a bit complicated but I think we'll manage.  

Bring on the blankets, sweatshirts and throws.

The question is:  Will you accept the challenge?
