HOME ORGANIZATION – Install an attic door blanket. Attic stair openings are a main source of heat loss in the winter.  There are many versions of this product, but I like this one because it has a radiant heat shield that deters heat from entering the home during the summer and prevents heat from escaping during the winter.  It has an easy-to-use zipper.
