So our vacuum died last week. It was a Hoover Windtunnel (our second in 2 years!) I went to Costco looking for a new one and saw the Dyson DC14 Animal. I've wanted a Dyson for a long time but couldn't make Jake see we needed it because we already had a working vacuum. Now that we don't, I feel it's time to plead my case. They are $399.99 at Costco, steep for a vacuum, but to me it would be so worth it. It comes with a 5-year warranty, which in itself is awesome. My grandma went with me to Costco today to look at vacuums and told me they just bought a Dyson and I should borrow it to see how I like it. I just spent TWO HOURS vacuuming our entire house, stairs included. It was AWESOME. I have never seen so much dirt, hair, dog hair, and who knows what else come out of our floor at one time. I filled two grocery bags of that nasty stuff (I promise you we are not dirty people, our other vacuum was just crap!) So, help me plead my case. Jake does not want to spend $400 on a vacuum but I tell him in the end it will be worth it, and we will have a cleaner house. He thinks we can find one for half the price that will do just as well. Is he right? If any of you have awesome vacuums for less than $200, let me hear it. We need to figure this out soon because I can't go much longer without one. So, recommendations anyone? Or should I just convince Jake we really NEED the Dyson? ;)
