Our vacuum broke yesterday. I had declared Sunday the day of cleaning (cleanliness is next to godliness, after all), and before it even started, it stopped. My mom gave us this vacuum, which she bought in 2001.
We had to go to Target to buy a new one. We spent 20 minutes comparing them, Googling "cyclonic action," and debating how much we should spend.
$150 later, we had a new vacuum, with cyclonic action (worth it) and a HEPA filter for pet hair.
I used it. I loved it.
Never have I felt more like a housewife.
