Getting the Economy Going

Heard a report yesterday that the Economy is getting better. The numbers are climbing up a little. Well, It must have been these blinds we purchase for the Laundry room. We are trying to save on energy, that is the loss of heat. Our addition has good windows but, they are not as great as the newer ones. Buying new windows for this room could be very pricey. Not to mention would have to be special ordered. For the laundry room is 9 foot by 12 foot and the windows are across that space. So, the next best thing was Insulating blinds.
Now these are remote control which is good because...the windows are behind things. Items like Cabinets, Pellet stove and a washer and dryer. Strings are not a thing I want anymore, due to the dangers to kids. As well as they are unsightly things, string hanging down and getting tangled up, not my kind of neatness. Gliders would not work because of the reaching around furniture, I would need a ladder to operate them. We visited a window treatment store and found Remote blinds. Ah... these are them, the perfect ones for our needs.

Last evening they were installed and boy do we Love them! I believe this was the greatest birthday present from hubby to me. Now I have a great Laundry room and it will be a warmer one in the winter and cooler in the summer. I can still look out at a push of the finger on a remote receiver.

You're welcome Mr President for our contribution to the up swing of our economy. The only thing is this will probably just offset the electric bill. So, it will most likely be a wash in the months to come. Oh well that's how the Numbers go...Up and Down!
