With the weather now turning chilly, and the energy price cap increasing yet again, more and more people are worried about how they’re going to heat their homes. A user on Money Saving Expert’s Heat the Human, Not the Home guide previously recommended investing in fleece-lined hoodies and blankets to keep you warm without paying for the heating.

They didn’t specify a brand. There are, however, plenty available on the market.

According to the Manchester Evening News, one bargain hunter found a Snuggle Hoodie in B&M, which she compares to the popular Oodie. For just £12, she couldn’t leave it on the B&M shelf.

The hoodie is large, fleece lined and has a big pocket at the front. Essentially it is a blanket with arms.

Sharing her find in Extreme Coupons and Bargaining UK, she wrote: “Bought this for Christmas but my daughter spotted them in the boot of my car, so my daughter and sons had them early as it’s starting to feel chilly at night.

“These have lovely warm sherpa lining to snuggle up in to save having to use our heating oil at the moment until it gets colder. I tried daughters on it’s age 11-13-years. To give you a size guide, I’m 4ft 10” and it fits me lol they also have a unicorn or rainbows design, also available in adult sizes.

“Not sure how they compare to Oodies as daughter wants one but these are a fab price, very warm and cosy!”

The post gained hundreds of comments with many sharing other hoodies that are similar and cheaper than the original Oodie. One wrote: “Bought my grandchildren them yesterday, they are so cosy.”

Another said: “We had the Primark version last year and lived in them so have invested in the real thing this year since they are doing two-for-one (still £42 each) but think it will be worth it with the fuel crisis and given how much we wore them last year.”

A third echoed: “Primark are doing them as well – very warm.” Another added: “Both of my children have them. They LOVE them! Definitely recommend.”
