Question Insulating a garage ceiling

We have a typical split entry colonial built in the late 1960's. There are three bedrooms and one bath above the two car garage. The master bedroom is at least four degrees cooler than the living room during the winter. We are looking at the most cost effective options of better insulating the upper floor from the garage. My wife wants to pull the carpeting from three bedrooms and put in better pads and carpets. The only thing on the ceiling of the garage are electric outlets and the attachment for the garage doors and openers. Can a well insulated false ceiling be put up? Should more insulation be pumped into the ceiling, or should the ceiling just be removed, insulated, and rebuilt? What makes sense from a price/performance point of view and of course from a price point of view?

For the time and money, the most effective approach would be to have insulation blown into the cavity between the garage ceiling and the bedroom floor.
