Cheap late sleepers / cooler cabine

So wanted to share this seasons experiments with the group. DW and I are night-owls and late-risers, so I ditched our pull down shades for roller blackout shades.

But it was STILL too bright and hot early.

So I bought some reflectix and magnets and reflectix tape at home depot (Like $30) and made magnetic reflective shades for our door window and skylight.

Now the inside is nice and shady, and our AC isn't working near as hard. Easily keeps it at 69 degrees inside (her preferred temp) and we can sleep till noon.
