Why didn't I do this last year?

The windows in our apartment, for lack of any better way to put it, suck. They are old, single paned, aluminum framed windows. They are gigantic heat seives in our house. Last year our heating bills got really expensive. When I made Allison's black out drapes last March I learned that black out drapery liner not only blocks out light, but is an insulator.

I've had drapery fabric for about 2 years and finally, yesterday, I made use some insulating drapes for the 8 foot window in our living room. Hopefully it will help keep our heating bill down a little this year, huh? We can already tell it makes a difference... you don't feel the cold air dumping on you when you sit on the love seat! What do you think?
