DealDash Ideas to Survive the Summer Heat


Summer’s here – and it’s H-O-T. Here are some ideas from DealDash to survive the summer heat.

Summer is the best season to relax and spend time with your family. Although summer is a fun season and is filled with activities, it can be hot outside. During the summer, it can be hard to stay cool, especially if you do not have any air conditioning or have to work outside. Luckily, there are some tips to help you survive the summer heat. Here are 3 tips for surviving the summer heat, from DealDash.

Stay Hydrated

When the temperatures are hot outside, make sure you drink an 8-ounce glass of water each hour to keep your body cool and hydrated. Try to drink a glass of water or bottle with every meal to keep your body flowing with water. If you do not like the plain taste of water, you can buy flavored or carbonated water. You can also try adding some fresh fruit to your water bottle. Try a slice of orange, grapefruit, or cucumber for some lightly flavored water.

Avoid Dark Colored Clothing

When you wear dark colored clothing such as black or navy, it can make you hotter. Dark colors are known to absorb the heat. Lightweight clothes that are also a lighter color will keep you cool during the summer. It is also best to avoid long-sleeved shirts. If you are at home or on the beach, you can wear less clothing. When you are trying on clothing, try to find clothes that are flowy and less restricted. 

Rest in the Shade

When it is scorching hot outside, you should spend no longer than 30-40 minutes outside. If you have to be outside, it is best to rest in a shaded area. You can sit under an umbrella or tree. When areas do not have shade, make sure you bring an umbrella, tent or sit in your car with the windows down (or up, with the AC on!). 

Supplies to Beat the Heat from DealDash

You can bid on some excellent items to help beat the summer heat. For example, you might get a personal umbrella to carry around, or a larger one to use as shade for the whole family.

DealDash Helps: Save Money on Heating


Winter is coming. It’s time to think about saving on heating costs, with DealDash.

With cooler months quickly approaching, you need to start thinking about heating your home for the winter. Unfortunately, this becomes incredibly expensive for a lot of families, especially those that use oil heating. Here are a few ways you can save on heating your home this winter, from DealDash.

Pile on the Layers

One very simple way to save money on your heating bill is to wear warm clothing or wrap up in a blanket. If you wear lighter clothing around the house you will find that you will want to turn the heat up. You will be wasting more you could have been saving. 

In addition to extra layers of clothing, be sure that each family member has a heavy blanket on their bed. DealDash has some very nice down alternative comforters for auction. I actually won one for around $3 including the cost of bids!

Eliminate the Drafts

You will also want to work on eliminating all the drafts in your home that you can. There are kits to cover windows to get rid of drafts for a very reasonable price. You can also make yourself a few draft dodgers to get rid of drafts coming through the bottoms of doors. Simply sew a long tube and fill it with sand or beans and stick it up against the bottom of the door. I personally have one against the bottom of the fireplace as well. 

Home-cooked Meals Help

If you make a meal in the oven, leave the door open a bit to let the warm air out. That can help you from having to turn up your thermostat and you can also turn your heat down at appropriate times during the day to save money on your heating bill. Since you have to cook meals for your family anyway, why not take advantage of the extra heat that the oven provides?

Beware of Space Heaters

While you might think that it is a good idea to use a space heater to help heat your home in the winter you need to avoid doing this.  You will be at the risk of having a house fire if something should bump into the heater. If you must have a space heater, try to get one of the long, low to the ground ones. They heat just as well and are much less likely to be knocked over.
