The heat has been relentless this week. We’ve all cranked up our A/C just to make the days and nights bearable. But constantly running the air conditioning gets expensive. That expense eats into your money for summer trips, the county fair, date night, a fabulous pedicure, and more. And we think that is unacceptable. There must be other ways to beat the heat!
Fortunately, Limelight Deals has the inside scoop on easy, cheaper ways to stay cool this summer.
Drink water! Simple, easy, and affordable. Whether you use the water fountain at the park, carry a water bottle, or fill up a glass from your kitchen sink, water keeps you cool and hydrated. But after a while, water gets boring. The same old ice water day after day, hour after hour, leaves your taste buds feeling abandoned. How about a cool snack with a little zing?
Snack on a frozen treat like ice cream, yogurt, gelato or shaved ice. A snack like ice cream cools you down and tastes delicious. You can wave your waffle cone in defiance of triple-digit temperatures. And, unlike water, ice cream comes in a variety of flavors so it’s never boring. Choose a different flavor for every day of summer.
Limelight Deals knows Southern Oregon cares about the environment and saving energy. We also know you like saving money. With that in mind, you will love this tip. When you’re home, turn off all the lights you aren’t using or don’t need. Or if you walk past a room with the lights on, switch them off. Not only does this save energy (and money), it helps you stay cool. Unnecessary lights equal unnecessary heat. When the temperature is topping 107 degrees, you don’t want extra heat. So turn off your lights and bask in a dimmer, cooler room.
After a scorcher of a week, we hope these tips help you stay cool the rest of summer. You don’t want the heat to keep you from camping, hiking, sight-seeing, or grabbing a slice of pie on your lunch break. And if you have any tips on how to stay cool, let us know. We’d love to add to our list!
