Have you heard about insulating your windows with bubble wrap? You just cut it to size and then mist the window glass with a fine spray of water. The wrap will stick to the glass. Come spring just peel it off.

I've never head about that!  I guess it's kinda like the blue insulating pool blankets made of bubbles. 

The window are double pane double hung Anderson wood clad with vinyl.  They were originally in the front living room of my house.  The PO replaced them when they started leaking where the sill and sash meet.   I never open the windows because if I want a breeze I just open the garage doors on each end and it creates a nice breeze plus I have 2 ceiling fans that I turn on.  They still leak so I thought about sealing them up with caulk to really keep the cold out.  

Thanks for the suggestion!

I was able to get some more insulation and plywood up today.  I had to do some clean up first and move some old book shelves to get access to the wall.  I finally had to buy some insulation ($70) because I ran out of the yellow unfaced free insulation that I had.

The corner that can be seen in picture 4 is going to be a big job.  I have stored a lot stuff in this corner and I'm not looking forward to tackling it!  I will have to do a lot of rearranging to make room.
