Redi Shade Simple Fit Has Me Wanting To Redo All My Windows+GIVEAWAY

A few weeks ago I received an interesting email asking if I would like to try Redi Shade Simple Fit. Having never heard of it, I researched and saw that it was easy to put up since it required no hardware.

Sounds great but having a husband who can do anything around the house, I wasn't sure what to make of a shade that I could put up myself.  Now, I know!

I received the email on the 3rd, received the shade on the 7th and then asked daily for my very busy husband to please remove the shade and hardware from the window so I could try RediShade. It took him until yesterday to finally have time to do it. If I had a RediShade in that window it would have taken me less than 3 minutes to remove it and two of those minutes would have involved setting up the step stool and climbing.

My husband removed the shade in 8 minutes having to screw out all the hardware so I had a clean slate. I removed the plastic and climbed up the stool.  I climbed back down the stool. Why? It wasn't the blinds fault! I had no idea where the button was.

Ok, take husband (woot, he is on my blog) gives me the "go ahead, you're on" hand gesture and...well, you check it out. Here is the video. (BTW...excuse my backside and Clary, don't laugh too hard.)

I was surprised can you tell!?  I, Maria, tenant of 33 locations, put up my first shade. Crazy I know!

The reason we did Handsome's room (he's playing a video game in the background and was unimpressed with his mother's handiwork) is because he wakes too damn early. When his room is darker, he tends to sleep past 6:45 a.m. I needed these shades all summer. We got his shade in blackout.


Disclaimer: I received a complimentary shade from Redi Shade who are also providing the giveaway.
