This is why..

..we are getting a new vacuum for Christmas. As if it wasn't a necessity before, the thing really made a statement today.I took a picture of it lying down, because it lost the ability to remain standing some years ago.
I guess 7 years was its limit.

"Easy-push"? This is what I call irony, folks. You should have seen me trying to finish vacuuming today once the top of this bad boy busted off.

So, any recommendations on vacuums? If you say, "How about one with a handle?" I swear I'm coming after you."

Now I've just got a month of vacuuming hunched over or on my knees.

Totally stumbled on your blog... Love my Roomba. Buy it from Hammacher for the lifetime warranty. You'll still need some sort of dustbuster type machine and a real vacuum if you have stairs, but I tell you, being able to vacuum every day without actually doing any work is heaven!

Jeff and I got a Eureka Boss earlier this year and we're really happy with it. We got it for around $120, although I know we saw them several places for around $200. What price range are you thinking? (We got it because it was the Consumer Reports pick in our price range.)

whatever you get don't ever vacuum up styrafoam -- your vacuum will never be the same

The Dyson Ball! It's a little pricey but it is so wonderful. It does it all - hardwood, carpet, stairs, children...

I highly recommend my Kenmore Intelli-clean. It is $250 or something and I've NEVER had a vacuum that did so well with bare floors. Love it.

I'm going to have to say Dyson on this one... Best vacuum I have ever owned. It is awesome because you can just rinse the filter out with water, not to mention several other reasons why I love it.

See? I told you! I have owned at least 8 different vacuums in my life and DYSON BEATS THEM ALL! Easiest to use vacuum ever.

The Dyson was a little out of our price range. . . So we got the Bissell Healthy Home and LOVE it!! It's a great price, manuevers easily, really powerful, we couldn't be happier!
