With cooler weather well and truly on the way, it is time to start preparing the family home for winter.

If you haven’t started yet, better get ready now as winter is coming really soon!

Follow this guide to get snug as a bug in a rug this winter!

1. Bedding

Get out winter blankets, woolen underlays and flannelette sheets.

Make sure you have enough for the whole family and give them a good wash and hang out in the sun. Worn larger sheets or blankets can be cut down for use on a single bed or cot, or even a warm baby wrap.

Make sure your family has enough warm pyjamas, coats, bed socks and singlets to last the season. If you’re not a fan of flannelette pyjamas, remember long tracksuit pants, long sleeved shirts and socks make a good substitute.
