Make your eyesore an asset by using your came-with-the-space heater for more than just keeping the flurries out. Two quick ideas: Buy (or negotiate for) a small leftover Christmas tree stump from a street vendor and simply place it on the radiator. If you snagged a fragrant chunk, the heat will help disperse an ever-so-slight wintery tree scent throughout your entire house. Secondly, you can employ the same technique to create a makeshift humidifier. Just place a sturdy Pyrex bowl with water on top of the radiator while you sleep. It’ll feel strange at first to wake up without a dry throat, but you’ll get used to it.
