In the idea of Oprah (even though I am currently not happy with her), I am going to be doing occasional posts on "My Favorite Things". Hopefully, they will inspire possible gift/Christmas ideas or just make your life easier. Today, my favorite things focuses on vacuuming.
For some reason, I can't move that picture where I want it but the Eureka Cordless Quick-Up vacuum has changed my cleaning life. It is lightweight and as a result is perfect for stairs and quickly cleaning out my car. I also use it in my kitchen, on my hardwood floors, after every meal.
I love my Roomba but unfortunately, it can't take care of all of my vacuuming needs. (But, if you don't own one, you really should own a Roomba.) So, between my Roomba and my Cordless Eureka, my floors are cleaner than they have ever been.
Oh, and for any of you men out there, don't buy either of these things and give them as Christmas presents without first finding out if your wife is "practical" gift lover or not. I don't want to be blamed for your wife being mad at you Christmas morning.
