Affordable Way to Cover Looong Wall of Windows?

Good Questions

Q: We just bought a new apartment with a beautiful wall full of windows — 12 tall windows, side by side. We installed cordless cellular shades on the windows, but it is a huge pain to open each shade one by one every morning, and then close each one by one each night. (Additionally, the cellular shades seem pretty prone to malfunctioning/breaking.) An electric/motorized blind seems like a good solution, but they're very expensive — probably would cost us over $1000 (and maybe even over $2000). Any affordable, creative suggestions?
