I made a new purchase this past weekend........I bought a Shark.
Well, not the kind that swims, rather one that takes care of the dog hair it seems we were swimming IN. Ever since my son brought Lucie (the mad dog) home, we are feeling like we are constantly fighting the dog hair takeover. It gets EVERYWHERE. We now own stock in lint rollers and refills from the sheer number of purchases of those items. I need a volume discount. But let's not be whiners.....:D
So we were looking at vacuum cleaners, and I seriously considered forking over the money for a DYSON, the kingpin of animal hair removal devices! After some investigation, my husband and I found this one and we decided it was worth a try. Now, realize that I am not paid or anyway being rewarded by those people at Shark. This is just a good-hearted referral for a product I've found that does an excellent job. You will be amazed at the suction power of this machine!!!! The Shark Automatic picked up so much dog hair and dirt, I was almost embarrassed.....and no, I am not going to show you the piles of hair vacuumed off of my rugs and carpet. Suffice it to say, we should be breathing a whole lot easier today! It costs about $175 at the local discount store......retail says about $200. BEST money ever spent. Now, we will see if it holds up it's end of the bargain over months of using it, but for now, I am sold......doesn't cost $500 AND does a good job. I actually look forward to vacumming, to see how much dirt and dog hair I can conquer!!! Well, almost.
