Plastic on the windows

Does it really help keep the heat in?  What kind do you use?  How do you get it to stick to the window frame without damaging it?  I have never tried it before but I want to save on our heating cost

It helps. There's special tape that holds it in place.

We did that growing up. It seemed to help.

My grandparents did that when I was little. I have no idea how effective it is though.

I does help. I used them in the winters before we got new windows. I just went to home depot and found the section with weatherproofing stuff. Then I looked at all of them, bought one, followed the directions.

It does work. We get it from home depot. It has this tape type stuff you put on, the put the plastic on it and use a hair dryer to make it tight.

yes it helps. I spend the extra money to the kind that you use a hair dryer to heat strink it. I forget what its called.

There's a special tape you use for your basic plastic but I personally don't like that kind cause I can't see out the windows.

Thank you.   I thought about putting up blankets because no matter what, my daughter's windows leak out air and her room gets so cold but I want the natural light to come through, you know
