It was during our long road trip to Lake Tahoe over the fourth of July, and all the car messes 3 little girls can make, and sitting on crumbs as I moved from chair to chair trying to keep everyone happy, that I announced, “As soon as we get home, I’m ordering one of those handheld vacuums to keep in this car!” And as soon as we got home, I started researching all the options. What did we do before online reviews anyway?
I narrowed in on the Dyson V6 Trigger handheld Vacuum. It had thousands of really great reviews, came with tons of attachments, had a washable filter, and easy canister to dump and so much more. However, I didn’t want to pay $200! Did you know that Dyson has an outlet on eBay?!
I’ve always used eBay to search for vintage rugs and art, and you know I always search there for coupons before making any big purchases. But now they are becoming my go-to for new, quality items at unbeatable prices. They have both seller reviews and product ratings that give me all the confidence I need that the product I want and see is what I’m actually going to get and be happy with.
I snagged one of the Dyson DC58 handheld vacuums I had been eyeing for almost half off and spoiler, it didn’t stay in the car. It started there, but then I realized how handy it would be to vacuum off furniture (including our outdoor furniture that gets debris on it if we leave it uncovered)…
…I vacuumed out all the drawers in the kitchen. The big appliance drawer that we tuck the toaster in always gathers crumbs…
I took it to the stairs, which is always the most intimidating vacuuming job for me–lugging the vacuum up and down or trying to balance it on a stair, and a baby on my hip. This was a cinch! The handheld Dyson even has a button where you can max out the suction and really get deep into carpet fibers–this was perfect for that post-roadtrip car clean out.
