It’s cold. Properly cold. Sat at my desk in a coat cold. And it’s only going to get colder.
And as always, Money Saving Expert comes to the rescue.
A recent article from the team shared ways to ‘heat the human not the home’, including the likes of the more obvious, thermals and electric blankets.
But they also advised something that you might not think of straight away - heated insoles.
And my cold toes are practically singing at just at the sound of that.
These work just as you’d imagine, you pop them on the bottom of your socks and then they keep your feet toasty and warm as you go about your day.
The Mirror found that you can pick up a pack of five pairs on Amazon for about £12.50 at the moment.
The handy foot warmers provide you with eight hours of warmth, so that makes it about 31p an hour - sounds worth it to me.
And people absolutely love the things, with one writing in the reviews that they use them every year to keep warm.
Another reviewer wrote: “I wouldn't think of going out in wellies in winter without slipping these inside. Just enough heat for comfort, and last for hours.”
While one put: “The insoles are comfortable to wear. I have really cold feet in the winter, the insoles are great, they get warm instantly.”
Others said they are a ‘lifesaver’ in winter and call them a ‘winter essential’.
Another also warned: “Be careful that you only wear with closed shoes though, as these are air activated and they will get very hot! I find them a little too warm for my foot arches but thicker socks (which you will probably already be wearing in cold weather) counters this nicely.”
Money Saving Expert also recommended some other handy products to ‘heat the human not the home’ including USB hand warmers and USB gloves.
The team reckon you can get the gloves for about a tenner, making them cost around 4p a week.
They also recommend using electric head pads and foot warmers as well as reusable hand warmers and hot water bottles.
