This is my first Market Friday post in 2023.
Why are we thinking about buying heating blankets?
Because we cannot afford to buy wood to heat the room, and we also cannot afford to buy and use a proper (at least 2000 Watt) electric heater in long term. Both of these because of the increased prices in the past. So currently we are simply thinking about deciding not to heat the room, and we are thinking about buying heating blankets to heat our beds instead of the room.
Living in poverty and the increased prices forces us to extreme decisions.
Of course this would mean staying in bed in most of the day in the cold winter days, but this is still better than starving, or freezing to death. We try to get the best out of the situation.
Today we saw an Esperanza heating blanket in the Interspar (a Hypermarket) in Szolnok, Hungary.
Price, energy consumption, good reviews
This heating blanket would cost 8999 Hungarian Forint (HUF). This is currently $24.63 USD, because $1 USD is currently 365.39 Hungarian Forint (HUF). Of course we (my brother and me) would need two of these blankets, so that would cost the twice of this price, and the maximum power consumption of the two heating blankets would be 120 Watt. This is still affordable in long term.
This heating blanket has three temperature settings, and the maximum power is 60 Watts, so it is not consuming much electricity. It is affordable in long term. We talked to some of the locals in Tiszasüly, Hungary about heating blankets, and one of them said that she is using a heating blanket, instead of heating the house.
We also checked the reviews on the internet too, and this heating blanket has good reviews.
So we have multiple reasons to buy it.
We have not bought the heating blankets so far, but we seriously thinking about it. Currently we do not see any other possible option to survive the freezing temperatures.
Probably we will buy it in the near future.
