Put tiny rugs next to beds in rooms that aren’t carpeted. Your feet will thank you when they hit that rug on freezing cold mornings.

For me, this applies to my entire uncarpeted home, so I’ve made sure every member of the family has a tiny rug at the very place he or she hops out of bed.

If you are handy with sewing, you can make your own. Typically around the web you can find a finger knit coil (tricotin) that is then coiled up on itself into a circle and stitched together. I can handle the finger knitting just fine, but not the sewing part. So my family has a hodge podge of tiny store bought rugs instead. One of them is from the dollar store.
