A New Vacuum

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!!!

I bet it is a great vacuum. I got a new vacuum about 2 years ago and I probably need a new one. They are so expensive for good ones. I love the Dyson ones.

We have a Dyson DC17 and love it. I don't have to vacuum as often and well you know I am a vacuum freak. :). I love the attachments. They work great on the baseboards.

I have had my Dyson for over a year now and it's true it hasn't lost it's suction. It has been great. I go straight from carpet to hardwoods with the simple flip of a switch. You will LOVE it forever!

I need a new vacuum so bad. I might have to invest. I'm just so cheap when it comes to stuff like this!!

Dig the tunes, girl.

My house is so small, and only the 3 bedrooms are carpeted, so I usually end up using this little re-chargeable (no cords - yay!) thing. Eventually I want to replace my old upright. It's getting old and seems to be eating belts. I hope you'll post an update in a few months and let us know how it's working out for you.

Funny, I just bought a Dyson because of Shannon at Rocks in my Dryer. Ours were always breaking down so I forked out the big bucks for the dyson. I absolutely love it. We had just put new carpet in so I am hoping the carpet will stay very clean! Hey, I grew up in Missouri--I sure do miss it!

I finally bucked up for a Dyson because I was stick of having to buy a new vacuum each year. It also finally dawned on me that with such a large investment to place carpet in a home, it would rightfully make sense to invest a little bit to take care of it.

The amount of dust and dirt it picked up after a fresh vacuuming with my old vacuum was absolutely amazing! I LOVE to vacuum!!!!!!!
