I’m HOT! And not in the good way. It is not even June and the way the sun comes up, it hits our bedroom window and heats up the room. I have woke up every morning this week burning up.
What am I going to do about it? I am on a mission. A mission to have cooler house with out lowering the thermostat in my home.
Last year I bought 3 wide wood slat blinds from a yard sale for $2 each. I have not up to this point decided where to put them. Now I know. I am going to change out my $5 blinds from Walmart and put the thicker blinds up to help block the sun.
I am also going to go visit Big Lots. I noticed the other day that they had sun blocking curtains on sale for $12 each. I would need 2 sets.
I am bad about putting a load of laundry in the dryer as I am going to bed or as I get up in the morning. Our laundry room is on the other side of the wall from our bedroom. I have not decided yet if this is a cause of the heat or not but I think it calls for not doing laundry right before bed from now on. lol.
Any suggestions on how you lower your temperature in your home with out lowering the thermostat?
