We have a very narrow window in the east wall of our bedroom. We need something to keep the sunlight from waking us up at dawn. Any suggestions of what to look for other than custom-ordering blinds? Or where to look in the east valley?

Walmart has light blocking curtains for under $20 in many different styles. We just bought some energy efficient/light blocking ones there and they work very well.

You also can buy sun blocking window film that you put right on the window, cut it yourself to fit. I did this with a hi up window for a long time, then got a sun block screen for the outside.

Thanks. I bought the film. Hopefully when used along with the mini-blinds already there it will be adequate.
