👌 The Best Vacuums That Don’t Cost a Fortune

Hiii Friends! 

We may be four weeks away from the Spring equinox, but I’m remembering Punxsutawney Phil’s prediction of an early Spring this year, and I refuse to believe he’s wrong! 🙅‍♀️

I know, I know, groundhog data isn’t the most accurate source of information, but regardless, I (Misti) am already thinking of Spring activities. 

And with Spring activities comes… Spring Cleaning 😉

Those two words may not spark joy for most of us, but with a little prep, cleaning doesn’t have to feel like quite the chore.

One way to ease unnecessary burden is to factor in the cost of cleaning, including investing in some high quality vacuums that don’t break the bank! 

Did you know March and April are the best time to buy a vacuum?

I sure didn’t! I actually still miss the days when I lived at home and my room was always magically vacuumed by my cleaning fairy twin sister.

With so many options, it’s hard to tell which vacuum is the best for which flooring or specific family life.

💨 Let’s dive into some features I’ve noticed from a few common vacuum types.

  1. Upright vacuums offer a great versatile option with the power to clean multiple types of flooring, but have one key drawback: they tend to be a little heavier to lug around. 

  2. Canister vacuums offer similar versatility (though be careful to consider an option that works well on carpet if this applies to your home!), and with their weight distribution design they can be a bit easier to manage across multiple levels.

  3. Stick vacuums are a compact, lightweight option that even come in cordless models for easier maneuverability! 

  4. If you’re looking for a lightweight option mainly for touch-ups, you might want to check out a handheld vacuum. These are super handy for those of us with pets or children!

  5. For a compact, completely hands-off option (especially great for hardwood floors), a robot vacuum might be your best bet. And many robot vacuums come with the added benefit of scheduling a time to vacuum, effectively automating some of your cleaning tasks! 💪

Maybe you’re reading this realizing you’ve already splurged on one too many fancy new cleaning toys this year or you didn’t budget for your vacuum to unexpectedly going kaput. 😳
