the best invention for winter

Other than long underwear, the best winter invention is disposable body warmers! 使い捨てカイロ(つかいすてかいろ)in Japanese, these little packets of heat are great in cold weather. They're apparently made of carbon and other things and are bio-degradable. One packet lasts the entire day. I may go through a lot this winter! It's about 300 yen for a packet of 10.

I used to use them a lot when there wasn't any heating at my studio. I think I used about 4 packs a day, but it was still very economical compared to heating up a big space with high ceiling.

4 packs a day! That would keep me very warm. I use about one pack every other day right now; they're great at night :)
