Have I mentioned our new vacuum? We bought it the day after Thanksgiving at Wal-Mart. It was only $25 and although we were skeptical we decided to try it out. It does work, not the best, but it’s better than nothing. My husband is really good about cleaning all the filters to ensure that it works properly and lasts a long time. I must say though, that shopping for vacuum cleaners was harder than I imagined, but I’m grateful for what we have. When we’re in a better position, I’d love to buy a Dyson next time.
