Unless you reside in Alaska, you're probably cursing the unbearable heat.
Those who aren't fortunate enough to have air conditioners installed in their apartments (like me) have two choices: to suffer through the heat--occasionally sticking our heads out the window and gasping for air, or to purchase a fan, the air conditioner's less-costly and energy-conserving cousin.
My roommate and I fell in love with the trendy and affordable MinkaAire retro style table fans, which we were able to snag for $50.92 from LightingDirect. Not only did we save $30 on each fan but the company shipped them for free! Mine is the pretty red one (pictured) but the fans are available in blue, pink, white and even in cool metallic colors such as Brushed Nickel and Oil-Rubbed Bronze. The fans are light, offer three speed options, and come with a one-year limited warranty.
And from now until Oct. 31, 2009, exclusive to our readers, if you use special offer code RS09 when purchasing online or over the phone, you'll save an additional 5 percent on each fan. Stay cool this summer!
