While some like it hot, some like it cold. In the summer months, costly climate control is an impossibility. While many sweat it out, resorting to cold showers, oscillating fans and tank tops, there are untapped possibilities for a more comfortable summer.
Simply get an inexpensive bucket, fill it up with water and freeze it. At night stack up several suitcases next to your bed to create a bed-side table. Place the bucket of frozen ice on top of the suitcases, and position your oscillating fan so that it blows the surface of the bucket of ice, blowing cheap cold air into your face as you sleep.
If the cost of two suitcases, a fan and a bucket has got you down, consider this fresh alternative. Simply take the shirt off your back, dunk it in water and freeze it for a more affordable alternative to the alternative mentioned above.
