This week, Elizabeth talked about her annual effort to keep her thermostat low through fall and winter. When it gets too chilly and she's tempted to turn up the heat, this year she's planning to crochet some blankets instead to keep warm!

How about you? Are you planning any scary ways to save energy this Halloween?
