Any ideas on a new vacuum cleaner? Chrissy has been asking for one for months. I finally broke down and started shopping with her for a vacuum cleaner. I was amazed that the preferred vacuum of every salesman/saleswoman we talked to was also the most expensive one; the Dyson. Anybody ever heard of this brand? Before I spent $300 for a vacuum cleaner, I wanted to do a little research; or at least have Chrissy do some research. According to the internet, there is not one vacuum with 100% approval. After hours of research and talking with others, we're more confused than ever.
I bought our vacuum cleaner 1-1/2 years ago from Walmart for just under $50. Before we went shopping again, I was going to do a little troubleshooting with the one we've already got. After 15-20 minutes of dismantling this thing (worried I'd forget how to put it back together), I got to the vacuum tube. No surprise, it was full of Maggie hair and dust balls. After cleaning it out, it works like a charm. I'm still planning on getting her a new one some day so I'd still like to here some other people's suggestions/experiences. Maybe I'll get her one for her birthday (just kidding).
