The monsoon is almost here. Depending upon how ready you are for the pitter patter, you will  enjoy the season or dread it.  But take it from us, just a some simple steps and you are rain ready and you won’t have to dread it – in fact, you will enjoy it!

Here are five simple tips for a great monsoon:

  • Buy an Umbrella:

Yes, we all feel cool and trendy with the raincoats and the trenchcoats and the windcheaters.  But one of the most uncomplicated ways to ward away the rain is the umbrella. You even get mini and foldable ones now, so you don’t have to worry about where to keep the umbrella. Raincoats are fine, but the sweltering heat you feel once the rain washes away and you are outside in the middle of the day – that’s when you think that the umbrella makes all the more sense.

  • Buy Sensible Footwear:

Buy plastic footwear and you won’t worry about stepping out in the rain. Do it before the rains start, and you might even get your footwear at a discount. Don’t go for the cloth or fake leather footwear,  because that ends up smelling because of the rain. The best bet for you is plastic footwear, and try to buy something that is made out of one piece and doesn’t have a lot of bells and whistles.
