I think we might break down and finally get a Dyson. I don’t know what’s up with things breaking recently (the t.v., the heel of my shoe) and now our vacuum. Ugh…always the worst timing! A few weeks ago I borrowed my neighbor’s Dyson and really loved it. My frugal nature is not comfotable with spending a few hundred $$’s on a vacuum but I hear they are worth the money. Sometimes you DO get what you pay for and it cab be an investment. According to my neighbor, and other friends whom I have informally polled (Lol) the Dyson is one of those things worth the price tag. Shoot, back in the day the Dyson would’ve been a steal compared to Kirby!:) So I think we are going to take the leap and get the D. We’ve been saving for a little while and they have a good deal at Best Buy right now so….looks like a window of opportunity. Still, with this being the season of giving, I would much rather spend that cash on family and friends for Christmas. So forget the “Shark Steam Mop”, it looks like Santa may bring me a Dyson instead!;).
