Ok, so I killed my old (by old, I mean 5 years old) vacuum the other day in a blaze of glory. The switch had some issues and sparks and all that. Basically, the switch was bad and every time I used it, I welded it a little more (hubby's description). So, it dies and darn it all if there doesn't seem to be half a box of Fruity Pebbles all over the floor... so hubby points out a $35 Dirt Devil Easy Lite Cyclonic in the Target ad.
I've never had a cyclonic vacuum before, but I borrowed my neighbor's once and loved it. $35 suit me just fine, though (doh!) I found the same vacuum in a variety of colors at Walmart for $34. I ended up getting the last one at the Target I went to - a nice berry pinkish red color. Thank God it wasn't lime green or else I would have passed. I, of course, didn't know then I could save a buck at Walmart and have a better choice of colors.
Anyways, to say that I was disgusted by what it pulled up out of my floor is an understatement. Ick! No wonder my allergies are so bad. Having owned the Dirt Devil Easy Lite Cyclonic for less than 24 hours, I can't attest to much else other than to state that it vacuumed up a cat's worth of pet hair and enough dirt that I could pot a plant.
If cheap matters to you, take a look at the Dirt Devil Easy Lite Cyclonic if you need a vacuum.
Disclosure: Per FTC rules, I must state that the company did not provide me with a product. I had to shell out $35 to buy this vacuum on my own and therefore I have nothing else to disclose.
