I've mentioned before that I have insomnia and that the neighbors' (both sides) dogs often keep me awake, or wake me up mid-sleep and early morning. I invested in a set of insulated drapes for the bedroom, and hung them the other day. They were purchased primarily to cut down on the cold and heat coming in from the outside, since this house isn't well insulated and only has single pane windows. But, what I've noticed is that they're also somewhat darkening, so that the lights/traffic and morning light don't wake me as early, and they also decrease the exterior sounds, so the barking doesn't wake me quite as much.
