Angry What should I do with these windows???

HELP! I need some suggestions...having dealt with paper shades and all their frustrations for far too long, I am open to some creative ideas. Not sure if curtains would let in enough light which is essential for my '66 Safari but the paper shades have got to go...

Do you have pictures of what you have so we can see the issue?

The original curtains w/the hooks on the bottom are gone. I'm thinking maybe blinds...not sure how to secure them @ the bottom though

The mini blinds come with hooks for the bottom.

We installed Hunter Douglas mini blinds on all of our windows. They have small clips that are attached at the bottom of the window that holds them when down.

I saw a trailer that had replaced the blinds with shades from ikea. The man replaced the bottom pull tab from the sleeve with metal then put magnets under the window. The blinds worked great and kept privacy at night. I hope this helps
