What do you keep your thermostat at?

Last year before Lucy was born(and I was pregnant!) I kept the house 64-65 during the day and 60-62 at night. We would just bundle up! Now with my 7 month old, who I nurse day and night, I am afraid to turn it below 68 day or night. I fear it is going to be an expensive winter!

I was the same way. In fact, there was a thread about this not too long ago, and I said my temp was at 66, but lately we've been inching down and now we're at 63! DS doesn't seem to mind at all!

We keep ours between 68-70...our house is old and it doesn't hold heat well anymore.

We keep ours at about 69 during the day, and just turn it completely off at night. We like to snuggle under blanket anyway---I HATE sleeping in a hot house!

The AC to 78 and the heater 70. The air conditioner will probably kick on today since the high will be 83. The heater has not made its debut yet I have turned on my gas fireplace though...for fun.

The heat is set at 66 and the AC is set at 69/70. I hate the heat. ugh. And DD and DH are so hot natured, anything more than that and they're both sweating!

OMG...I have it set at 73 right now!

Our house was built in the 1930's and half the windows still need to be replaced. They are really drafty.

We just bought a wood burner/stove at the end of spring, and when we use that to heat the house we figured out we are saving $10 each day. That can really add up! The house generally is between 71 - 77 when we run burn the stove.
