Temps this week are going to be in the mid 90s. What’s a frugal gal to do to keep cool ad NOT break the bank?

First off is the community pool. For only $50 for the entire summer season (Memorial Day to Labor Day) I get to stay cool while swimming and floating about. From noon till 1PM, every single day including weekend, is adult-only swim time! The rest of the day that I’m there, I work on my tan.

Thankfully, the pool is never crowded!

When I get home, I have two eco-friendly air conditioners (each 6,000 BTUs) strategically placed on the front side of my home. These two units keep 1140 sq ft as cold as I want it to be. I set the programing to ‘eco’ and forget it. Once the indoor temp reaches its pre-set temperature, the unit shuts off (thus saving me money). It fluctuates on and off while keeping the rooms cool. I set the a/c temp at 71-73F and the unit gets the room down to 75F. Just perfect!

How are you keeping cool this summer?
