To the one person who voted it would ship early, you were right! 🙂 My Dyson arrived this afternoon and I think I’m in love.  In its blog debut, my new Dyson DC18 Slim:


Tomorrow I will post the results of my “Dyson Challenge”.  In other words, I will vacuum with my old vacuum and then vacuum with the Dyson to see how much extra stuff it picks up.  Happy early Christmas to me! 🙂

I decided to buy the Dyson after a huge 3 to 1 landslide on the voting. 🙂  The vacuum isn’t scheduled to ship until 1/15/2009 which leads me to this poll:

Want Versus Need

Posted in House, Money, Mr. Charming, Poll tagged , , , , , at 3:44 pm by smilinshell11

I’m having that major dilemma right now.  I feel like I need this: Dyson DC18 Slim Vacuum  Now you might think, “$250 for a VACUUM!!!” but anyone who has ever had one tells me that it the BEST vacuum they have ever owned.  My current vacuum is something like this: Bissell Upright Bagless  Granted I could sell my old vacuum on Craigslist and get something for it.  The Dyson I want is 1/2 off plus if I order before midnight, Mr. Charming found a code for free shipping.  Right now we have mostly carpet throughout the house but plan on soon putting in some sort of wood flooring and in that case, do I really need a nice vacuum? We don’t have a dog that lives with us (though we might puppy-sit once a month for a weekend) or really bad allergies.

To buy or not to buy, that is the question.
