insulating switch/outlet boxes

I looked thru this forum a little and didnt find anything about this so......

My switch and outlet boxes on the outside wall tend to be a little drafty when the wind is blowing. Can I take some insulation and put it in behind the switches? will it interfere with anything?

NO. you cannot put anything in the boxes besides wiring.
They do sell foam pads slightly smaller than switch and receptacle plates which are put under standard plates.
