Affordable Ways to Keep Cool in the Texas Heat

“You may all go to hell, and I will go to Texas.” – Davy Crockett

If only Mr. Crockett was alive and well, would he be able to tell the two apart right now? Last weekend, Dallas-Fort Worth was hit by an overwhelming triple-digit heat wave. The kind of unbearable heat wave that makes you contemplate hibernation until sweater weather rolls around… eventually.

Fortunately, keeping cool in this Texas heat doesn’t have to break the bank. Before you resort to turning down the dial on your AC, here are some of our favorite affordable home products that will help you breeze through the rest of summer.

Oscillating Fan

When it comes to fans, you don’t have to sacrifice style for comfort. The sleek design of this oscillating fan says goodbye to bulky blades and loud noise, keeping areas cool and cozy.

Organic Cotton Bedding

Is there anything worse than waking up in the middle of the night drenched in sweat? Consider replacing your bedding with a breathable fabric like cotton or linen. These types of fabric allow warm air to circulate easier rather than trapping heat.

Infused Drink Dispenser

It is easy to forget that what we put in our bodies influences how we feel, but keeping hydrated doesn’t have to be boring. This beverage dispenser includes a handy infuser that allows you to add some fresh flavor to water like lemon or cucumber.

10ft Offset Patio Umbrella

If you enjoy being outdoors but don’t have much cover from the sun, an offset patio umbrella provides the same amount of shade without a center pole. A great way to not only keep cool, but to protect yourself from dangerous UV rays.

Oscillating Outdoor Misting Fan

Turn your backyard patio into the place to be this summer with an oscillating outdoor misting fan. When the temperatures are extra toasty, sometimes a regular outdoor fan won’t cut it. There’s no better feeling than cool mist on your skin on a hot Texas day!
