Vacuum ideas anyone????

When I was pregnant with Lily I thought I would NEVER get anything done. Especially cleaning. Tonight was fun and successful. With the two of them in tow, (following me around) I managed to clean up the kitchen and vacuum out all the nooks and cranny's around the floor. (It was incredibly gross - lily was picking up most of it with her pants while crawling.) Lily loves to follow the cord of the vacuum and isn't scared by the noise. When I would try to pull the cord she would hang on like a water skier. Cute!
While cleaning up the house, I realized how horrible my vacuum is. It took forever to pick things up and I just changed the bag. Does anyone have a vacuum they love? I know the Dyson is great, thinking about the Dyson Slim. Is there a cheaper option? I like the cannister vacs too. Too many options out there. Ughh.
BTW - after they went to bed, I scrubbed my floors. I haven't done it myself in several months. My wonderful mom usually does it when she visits.

Wow, I'm impressed that you got all that done in one night!

I'm the wrong person to ask about vacuums. I got mine at a garage sale for $15 and Jace is convinced it doesn't work. He's right. *sigh* I'll be anxious to hear other peoples' ideas. I would LOVE to get a new vacuum.

How funny, I also have been wanting/needing to get a new vacuum and just can't decide which one would actually work best. Of course, after having a Kirby salesman come in and clean my carpet i would love one, but i could only talk him down to $800, so for all you FPU alumni, we know that won't happen. Thus begins our quest for the perfect vaccuum....
Also, could your mom come scrub my floors?

Well, I wanted to be the first person to post the perfect vacuum. Unfortunately, my favorite is whatever's on sale at Costco. Love sales, love Costco. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Might I suggest a dog? we never have crumbs on our floor with Lee around. ha ha!

BTW, look into the bagless option more before you buy something. Nate said he saw some dateline type show where they said the bagless aren't good b/c it blows stuff around (dander, dust etc...) b/c there is no bag to trap it. Just a thought.....

Okay--the kirby IS the best. Since we facilitate FPU, you know we didn't buy it from the salesman (although he has been to our home several times--for the free gifts). Will got it off of ebay for about $260--which is alot, but substantially less than retail. I also like the Oreck, which you can get off ebay too.

Mel said to check out Starks. She also said the Dyson works but is really expensive to maintain.

Of course, I could call you and tell you all of this...in fact, I just might. It has been a few hours.
