Well I finally did it...I got a new vacuum. We go through vacuums like some people go through gum. We have had to get a new one about every two years. I was tired of having to go over and over the same spot just to pick up the piece of lint on the floor. I researched and researched all the different types of vacuums and then I came across Shannon's post where she asked everyone to give her suggestions on a vacuum. So, I read all of those and it just made my decision that much more easier. I was already leaning towards the D17 by Dyson and that's what I got.
I started vacuuming my bedroom and the hallway and I was grossed out by all the junk in the canister. I mean I had just used my old Bissel and the Dyson pulled out so much stuff!!! I have now used all the attachments and I am shocked at how well it works. In this case you do get what you pay for. I normally don't pay that kind of money for a vacuum.
Let me know if you have one and what you think!!!
