The days are getting shorter, and the temperatures are getting colder, which means one thing: Winter is coming. To help you prepare for the snowy, chilly months ahead, we've rounded up 5 things you should buy before winter actually arrives.
1. Hot Chocolate/Coffee Maker
When it is snowy and cold outside, there is nothing better than cuddling up in a nice warm blanket with a hot cup of coffee or hot chocolate. Picking the right machine can be difficult with the thousands of options. Keep in mind your family’s needs when picking one that is just right for you!
2. Snow/Ice Melt
Snow can be a blast to play in, but every commuter’s nightmare. To prepare for the snow, sleet, and ice stopping you from getting where you need to be, make sure you stock up on anti-precipitation products.
3. Snow/Ice Scrapper
Getting an effective double-sided snow brush and ice scraper is so important. So, you can exercise caution and *fully* clean off your car before heading to work without having to make yourself late. There is a wide range of scrapers that do not just scrape ice, it chips and chisels ice too, allowing you to clear even the thickest layers, without ever harming your windshield in the process.
4. Space Heater
If you are looking to save money this winter, you may want to look into getting a space heater. Space heaters are easily portable and can fit into the lifestyle of your home. From a fireplace look-alike to travel size, there is one out there that is perfect for your needs.
While snow forts and snowball fights may ignite a childlike glee, seeing your driveway packed with a foot (or more!) of snowfall is anything but. Whether it’s your first year having to do snow removal or you're just tired of your old snow shovel, you may want to look into purchasing a snowblower.
