DYSON

I actually vacuumed today (a small miracle) and it got me thinking that I should post about my vacuum (the Dyson). I used to think that it just had a good marketing scheme and wasn't worth $400. I swore I would never own one, but I got it for a good price back in September and decided to get one. The main reason I bought it is for the "telescoping wand" that extends 17 ft. so you can clean your stairs easily. I have been very happy with this vacuum and it really does have good suction as advertised. If you do decide to buy one, do not pay full price! The best place to buy a Dyson (unless there is a special deal/sale) is at Linens n' Things or Bed Bath and Beyond. This is because you can use their 20% off coupons on Dyson products. So..instead of $400, it would cost $320. A lot of money, but at least you aren't paying full price!

Tell me your thoughts! Do you have a vacuum you really like?

i love the oreck, but they are not good for thick carpet. I haven't found anything I like for the stairs, therefore our stairs never get vacuumed!

Karen, a friend of mine bought the Hoover Windtunnel 2 Upright Vacuum. She looked for a long time and did some research. Costco is having a sale March 3-9 for 40.00 off so it makes them 174.99. I think that is a great deal and am planning on getting one. I have a windtunnel now and it has been a while so I thought I needed a new one. Plus I could use two vacuum's one for up and one for down.
