Let's talk about something glamorous. Let's talk about vacuums.

Confession: my best favoritest recent purchase is not a bag, flip flops, sunglasses, lip stuff... it's this new vacuum: the Shark Navigator Lift-Away Deluxe. Old lady say what? Old man say what too, because MFD agrees with me. It allows me to hausfrau like a boss and I love that.
Things we love about this vacuum:
1. It weighs like 1/80th of what our heavy old doucher vacuum weighed. I could juggle this thing. In technical real life terms it's a hair under 16 pounds.
2. It's bagless - our old vacuum stunk to high Heaven since Mae stinks. We tried baking soda in the bag, baking soda on the carpet, essential oils in the bag, etc. No dice. This entire canister is washable. Just like Mae.
3. The entire thing comes apart and put back together like a transformer or something. Seriously. That's the best I can explain it. So when you want to clean the sofas or the steps, you detach the canister and the entire extension hose, put whatever tool you want on it, use it, then put it back together. No more tripping over the stupid falling down base when you're trying to get all the insane dog hair off of the couch cushions.
4. Excellent suction and you have control over that too.
5. I love love love the couch tool. I don't dread vacuuming the couches anymore.
6. It's a super easy transition from carpet to bare floor - there's a switch that you flip and you're transitioned.

Basically my vacuuming life revolves around how a vacuum deals with incessant dog hair. If you have a pet, this one is for you.

It was only $190 at Target, there's a free $30 gift card with purchase, I used my Red Card to get an additional 5% off and free shipping. Totally worth it and definitely recommended from my littered with dog hair home to yours.

Now then...if this floor don't shine like the top of the Chrysler Building, your backsides will.

  1. I want that. Our current vacuum sounds like a fighter jet, it's so freaking noisy. And the suction is TERRIBLE. How does it do on bare floors, suction - wise?

  2. Finding something that works on pet hair and doesn't get tangled up in the blades is like a mythical thing. Glad you found something that works I'll have to check it out.

  4. I might need to get something like this since our new house has stained concrete floors in the basement and carpet upstairs. I always love the idea of non-carpeted floors but then... the dust and dog hair. EVERYWHERE. I guess it's better than having it embedded in my carpet though?

  5. I love that our Dyson is bagless. It's so much easier to empty and clean. But it does get my hair tangled up in it all the time. Scott has a great time when that happens.

    We have a whole house vacuum (it came with the house) but still lug the big ol' Dyson around. I'm looking forward to fixing the outlets in our garage so we can run both the freezer and the whole house vacuum without blowing a fuse.

  6. Oooh, I need a new vacuum, thanks for the rec! I love Target and have a red card and I like the idea of being lazy and having it shipped instead of going in person. Thanks! Also, I laughed at "old doucher vacuum" :)

  7. I WANT THIS!!! Bauer lays on the back of the couch in the same spot, every night. It needs to be vacuumed but of course the dustbuster thing we have is never ever charged. And I hate having to get out a separate vacuum to do the rug. Totally showing my husband this post :)

  8. Vacuums with great suction, lightweight, rather inexpensive, easy to clean = dream come true. I do like to vacuum because you can see the dirt, hair, etc being sucked right up. Leary of the bagless and anxious to see how your new vacuum wears.
    On another note, can you channel me your photogenic-ness asap. I am getting my license picture taken.

  9. Sweeeet! I've been waiting for this review, I'm so glad it got a thumbs up. I think I killed my dyson and anyway it was heavy and hard to move around with. This looks like fun! Guess I'm old too...

  10. It is so important to have a good vacuum cleaner when you have shedding pets. And pugs shed the most of like any dog ever!!! We totally need a new vacuum cleaner...we are going to have to check this one out!

  11. Love the Annie reference in the last line ;) And I have a new vacuum on my Amazon wish list... in case anyone ever randomly wants to buy me one haha! We are due for a new one for sure.

  14. VACUUM CLEANERS!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. We have a Dyson. I think vacuum cleaners are definitely exciting. It was our joint anniversary present to each other.

  16. We need a new vacuum ours bit the dust!

  17. I have an Oreck which I love but I also have minimal carpeting and no pets. So the bag doesn't bother me as much. I think I'd go your route if it wasn't the case.

  18. I have been wanting a new vaccum for like 3 years now. i don't know what my problem is but I can tell you one thing: I want that.

    ReplyDelete
  19. vacuums are my fave thing household wise! is that weird? we have a bissel.. i think. whatever it is, its fabulous! i spent like a year researching haha.

  20. I can totally get behind your hausfrauing excitement here. I have TWO DYSONS, the cordless stick vac and the animal monster. Then I found a link on pinterest to this cleaning blog about how to wash your dyson and I strangely love doing that too. Essentially, you make me feel better about being a weirdo clean freak.

  21. That is soooo what I need. Dragging my monster up and down the stairs is a back killer. The comments about Mae are awesome!! Hahaha!

  22. The part about the canister coming off so you can vacuum the couch and stuff is AWESOME. I am constantly bashing myself with my upright when I'm trying to use the hose to vacuum the baseboards and around the bottom of the furniture and it falls over.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I can't decide what excites me more... the description or the pictures of a MAN vacuuming!

  24. I have the same vacuum in gold and I LOOOOOVVVEEE it (although I kinda wish I had gotten the red/white one because well, fave colors but spending an extra $80 for color wasn't in my cardbox). My roomie actually just bought the same one as you for when I leave.

    Great minds!

  25. Nice!

    I have a Dyson, and I love it. But this one looks pretty cool too.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I so want this! looks easy to use and when it comes to cleaning easy is the way to go!

    ReplyDelete
  27. You know I love a great vacuum. I with Loopy will wait to see how this holds up as all my bagless shit the bed at one year or less. I vacuum a lot and apparently stuff gets in the motor.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Well I'm sold. The price tag is especially nice. If I didn't have all hardwood floors, I would definitely buy it! It also seems to be hubby proof- that should be listed haha!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love a good vacuum! I'm on the hunt for a good deal on a Dyson stick vacuum right now for my hardwood floors.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I have the Dyson Animal and it's pretty awesome. It does have a "couch" attachment, but the whole canister doesn't come off like yours. That would be really nice. I do have to say, it was the best money I've ever spent for cleaning!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Isn't it funny what excites us as we get older? My husband was stoked when we recently bought a similar vaccuum as well, and he started using it immediately when we got home, smiles all around. It was adorable. And bagless vaccuums are totally where it's at!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I actually have TWO vacuums right now because my mom gave us one that does floor and carpet, but it doesn't have a hose to do the couches. I need to get rid of at least one of them, and pick up something like this! I'm such an old lady too. I love it!
