Redi Shade!! Review and a Giveaway!!

A few weeks ago I was contacted by the amazing people from Redi Shade. They offered me the chance to review the Simple Fit Shade and for me to offer a giveaway on my blog. I know, AMAZING right? Well I of coarse could not say no to something so awesome.

I followed all the directions on how to measure my window of choice, how to order, and all that good stuff. Shipping was actually quite quick and although I forgot to take a picture, the shade was very protected within the box.

Let me tell you a little bit more about the Simple Fit Shade. I find it easiest to include the Simple Fit Shade Fact Sheet.

I was informed of just how simple it was supposed to be to install the Simple Fit Shade, but I had my doubts. Watch this video, this is how to install the simple fit shade. Looks way too easy..

To my amazement it was actually just that simple!!

Originally I had measured my daughter's window. I wrote down my measurements and still some how got it wrong. But luckily for us the shade fit perfectly in the room where the 2 babies of the family play. I chose the light filtering version as opposed to the black out version as I prefer to have a little light in all rooms.

Here is the video of The Hubbyman installing The Simple Fit Shade.

Before I post the giveaway, I have to say that pressing the trigger button while the shade is not in place will cause the trigger area of the shade to fly across the room. Not that any of you would do that..

The value of each shade is between $99 and $253, depending upon the size and type. This giveaway is only open to U.S. residents. Your window must meet the following requirements:

  3. Oh this is perfect for me!! I live in an apartment on the ground floor and there's only one big window right where everybody walks by, so I would love to have some privacy but still let the light in! And since I'm single, it's important that I can install this myself! :)
