Best Invention Yet...Well Today.

As most of you know, it has been really hot lately. Today it actually topped out at 105 in Nashville. My car said 107, but I won't argue with Jim Cantore:) It has been so hot that I have all our shades pulled and the air and fans blowing to their max. Last week I was cooking and realized that it is time to come up with a solution to the "no shade on the backdoor problem." I have been fighting it for some time now.
So, I was surfing on the good ol' IPad one night when I Googled "backdoor shades." Upon the first click, I didn't really come up with anything. Then, on my second try, I found the best invention ever. What is it, you ask? Magnetized mini blinds that fit perfectly over your backdoor. Ours just happens to have glass all the way to the floor. They also offer the type for half glass doors. The only problem was that our Lowe's didn't have then in stock. I had to order it.  I decided to take the plunge, and I ordered it! I didn't think it would come so soon, but it did. To my surprise, Craig found it sitting by the garage door today. He took it out of the box and stuck it right to the door in like 2 minutes. He was skeptical at first because he hates mini blinds, but after it was installed, he said "well, those aren't so bad after all." Wow, you mean, I made a good decision about a home improvement product?
To sum it all up, I have to say that I am super happy about this wonderful find. I never thought I'd get so excited about something as simple as a magnetized mini blind, but it really has made my day. It blocks so much light and even magnetizes at the bottom so it doesn't clank every time you open and close the door!
If you are interested in ordering one, check out I would highly recommend it to anyone. And, no Lowe's isn't paying me to post this:)

This has to be the easiest way to cover your back door.
