A few months back I bought a used hand-vac from one of our local thrift stores.
I was pretty excited about my $14.95 find, and hoped it would fill the space of the much-needed family dog. (Well, the cleaning-up-under-the-table part at least. Admittedly, the handy-vac isn’t all that cuddly to snuggle up to.)
What a novelty to be able to whip that thing out and suck up a mess in 30 seconds flat.
Of course Levi is obsessed too. He gets a real high from being let loose in the house with it. (I’ll be reminding him of this in a few years, no doubt.)
I thought that it might become one of those things that fades in appeal. But so far, so good.
I’m proud to say that I’ve probably vacuumed more in the last couple of months than I have in the last year (don’t judge), and Levi’s not slowing down anytime soon either.
Sometimes convenience is just a novelty that quickly wears out and leaves us with unwanted stuff cluttering up our closets.
Other times it’s the key to a truly cleaner floor.
Q for you: Handy-vacs and other “novelty” cleaning items – yay or nay?
