Keeping cold air from entering your home in the winter is essential to cutting on heating costs and energy usage. One summertime staple -- a pool flotation noodle -- can be used to help block out drafts. For homes that have large gaps under doors, simply cutting open a pool noodle and sliding it onto the bottom of the door can do the trick. It's soft enough to not scratch floors and flexible enough to slide back and forth so the door can be opened and closed. You can cover it with fabric to make it decorative, or just use it as is.
