temporary privacy allowing light in?

temporary privacy allowing light in?

I live in a rented apartment near a fairly busy road with lots of sidewalk traffic. My bedroom is on the ground level and has one whole wall made of windows. I currently keep the mini-blinds drawn at all times for privacy, safety, and theft prevention because I don't want people to see me home alone as a female or to see what I own and be tempted to break in. However, I'd love to be able to let the light in! I almost always have an overhead light on since it's pretty dark with the mini-blinds drawn and I'd love to be able to have some plants and such inside (currently impossible due to lack of enough light). Any ideas on how to do this in an inexpensive removable way?
Am I getting a green thumb?
