Reader Melissa has a question about the best prices for vacuums
I just recently moved again and I lost my vacuum somewhere in the process. Go figure. So I’m looking into getting a new one ASAP. The problem is I have no idea what ones are good that aren’t going to cost me a lot. I need something that does both hardwood and rugs as well as being portable enough that I can take it into the driveway and use it to clean out my car. Do you or your readers have any suggestions??
Help Melissa out. Any suggestions on the best vacuum for Melissa to buy for a limited budget?
Personally, about 5 years ago, I saved up and bought an Oreck. Best thing I ever did. Even though I had to pay a lot for it initially, it has paid for itself over the 5 years I have had it.
Previously, I was buying inexpensive vacuum cleaners, paying around $75 – $99 for them. It turns out, they were only lasting me 1 year. So, each year I had to lay out around $100 for a new vacuum. After doing that for years and years, I decided that I was going to save up for an Oreck. Paid $500 for it. Yikes, I know, but, now 5 years later, it still as good as new. And, I’m certain I can easily get another 5 years out of it.
