My new vacuum

This is my new vacuum. It is a Bissell PowerForce Bagless Vacuum. The other one we have is awful. It is a million years old and it smells so I would rather not use it than stink the place up. Basically, it has long ago had it's day.
This new one is great. I wasn't expecting miracles because it was under $50 but oh my god it is amazing. We have a husky who is shedding big time right now and I was hoping it would at least pick up some of the dog hair. What I wasn't expecting was for it to fill up after I had just done the living room. I was actually amazed the suction was that good. The living room is the worst room for dog hair definitely and because I hate the other vacuum I have been cleaning it up with the dog glove which is good but means I have to get down on my hands and knees. Not being a fan of housework you can understand how much I don't enjoy doing that job.

I realize now that I am old. Why else would I be this excited over a vacuum. It's sad really but I love my new vacuum.


  1. I bought a $450 dyson over 4 years ago and I am still in love with that thing. Vacuums rock! Remember my entry about the stupid goddamn steam vac? We can be old together ok? lol <3

  2. I think my husband would be sick if we spent that much on a vacuum. If we were to invest that much it would be on the Dyson Animal which is supposed to be amazing for pet hair.
    I've used my Bissell a fair few times now and it is really good at picking up the dog hair.
    I can't wait until they invent a machine to do all the picking up for you as well. I am not a lover of housework.
