It’s almost embarrassing how often the conversation of vacuums comes up in my life. I’ve had a mild vacuum obsession since I was a teen. Or maybe once I got to college. I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned this before. I think it runs in the family- my aunt obviously vacuums her house multiple times in one day (hi Claudia! Love you!). I vacuumed once a day when I lived in our old, smaller place, and I vacuumed once maybe every other day when I moved in here. But since getting sick, well, it’s definitely not as frequent as I would like, but whatever.
We enjoy having a smaller house. Honestly, the house feels quite big to me- I don’t know if I really ever considered it that small- but in conversation with friends recently it was pointed out, “Well you only have one living room, so technically, by American standards, that could be considered small.” True. They’re right, I guess. I never really thought about that before. It still feels like a good amount to vacuum, though, when you have to get under tables and couches, up high, and wherever else.

And with this guy and an artsy kiddo around? Well, vacuuming has to happen quite a bit and it has to easy. I think I’ve wanted a Dyson for 13 years now. Is that weird, to be a teen who thinks having a Dyson is a good idea? Haha. Probably. But they’re known to be the best– with dog hair especially. And the new Dyson V6 Absolute Cord-Free Vacuum? That’s the winner. I’ve literally had two people text me this month about vacuums and specifically that one– so me writing this post is actually quite funny and perfect timing with the rest of life, huh? Haha. I’ll be honest: the vacuum looks scary and complicated at first, but it’s basically the perfect device to clean all the tiny cracks and crevices in this place. That itchy dog hair likes to hide in all those hard-to-reach places!

I can’t tell you the last time I actually saw him vacuum under the couch. The fact that he did this and proclaimed, “Well this works really well” makes my vacuum-loving heart so, SO happy.

Look! And she can use it too! This corner and I have a love/hate relationship. I love her little space– but there are always so many tiny papers and glitter and everything here! Now she picks it up all by herself! BEST THING EVER. Seriously, I never appreciated a light and cord-free vacuum so much until actually having it for myself. It’s too convenient for our neat-freak space.

Clean home. Happy home.

  1. know the obsession far too well. I vacuum several times a day on the weekends. Once I park my car and let the dogs out during the work week the vacuum is in hand. I've sadly missed my son's bus once because I was vacuuming. Thankfully he enjoyed the extra ride! Pretty horrible feeling, but can now chuckle about it.

  2. I'm sure it's a great vacuumcleaner but I really don't want to vacuum… can't go without my bot-vacuum 😉

    • theres a charger and a tiny thing in the back to plug it into! It was smaller than I expected too- but its good– cause its light enough or even marlowe to use it 😉

  3. I love sweeping and I have 5 different ones. Hahaha crazy, now I may have to get one of these.
