Best $35 I've spent...

Before getting pregnant, I thought the Swiffer vacuum was an unnecessary expense. But, our ancient Dustbuster is giving up the ghost, plus it requires me to bend over. And, while I love our regular vacuum, it's just too heavy to be toting all around the house after every meal.

So I splurged this weekend on the Swiffer vacuum. It's light, and has a long handle so I can use it standing up.

Today it's fully charged. And the boys took turns vacuuming the kitchen. They did a great job! So not only did the kitchen get vacuumed (for a change!), I wasn't even the one who had to do it.

Don't you love it?

It's totally made my day!

OOoh Swiffer vacuum! We have the swiffer mop (wet or dry depending on the doo-hickey you put on the bottome) and Logan loves it when I make the handle smaller so he can run it around the kitchen. I may have to invest in the vacuum for the "big kids" though. Nice!

I've been lugging out the vaccuum lately as outside is tracked inside. This might be just what I need.

I got mine at BJ's (came with a bunch of swiffer dry pads and 2 extra filters...I think it was more like $40 with all that stuff).

The boys also love to use our swiffer wet mop, too, though I don't find it works all that well for anything but light cleaning (hey, that's good, too!)

This definitely seems the way to go...get "toys" for the boys to do the work around the house!

Saw you on SITS wanted to come leave a comment! I do not have a swiffer vac but my "curve" dustbuster has officially broken. It will not suck up anything anymore and just lets out a puff of dust when I turn it on. So I'm in the market for something new, thanks so much for the swiffer idea! Have a great Wednesday!
