I refuse to turn the heating on in my bedroom so keep cosy with an electric blanket instead – it's less than £3 a month | The Sun

YOU might be worried about how much an electric blanket costs to use in the current climate.

But one woman who relies solely on the devices to keep her bedroom cosy has insisted they are a game changer when it comes to staying warm during the cost of living crisis.



"Electric blanket season is here," Hanna wrote over a video on TikTok of herself putting the blanket on her bed.

"Did you know that keeping it on for four hours per day only costs you less than 10p.

"That’s 70p per week and £3 per month.

"It’s literally sooo much cheaper than having the heating on in your bedroom and it actually keeps you properly warm and cosy.
