Staying Holiday Ready with Dyson

We’ve received so many messages asking how we keep our house and rugs clean with 2 dogs and a baby. Let me fill you in on a secret, we vacuum A LOT. Well, we also don’t wear shoes in the house, which helps so much. But in general, Mike is a clean freak and he’s rubbed off on me quite a bit. I’m not at all as crazy as he is, but I do love that his OCD clean tendency leaves us with a very organized and clean house.

I bought Mike a very special Christmas gift this year and ordered it early since we’ll have family in town for the holidays and it makes sense to start putting it to use now. I knew our new Dyson V8 Animal Bagless Cordless 2-in-1 Handheld/Stick Vacuum would be clutch as we prep the house for company. This vacuum as been on Mike’s wishlist for a while. He was like a kid on Christmas morning when he opened it. Best part, I bought it on eBay for a little less than it’s full retail price with their Buy it Now option.  I just love that the vacuum is bagless and cordless – it makes me even want to do some cleaning ;). We decided on the V8 Animal option because of it’s longer battery life and because well, we have 2 dogs. They’re hypo-allergenic, but there’s still shedding. The dogs camp out on the couch while we’re away from the house, so the fact that the vacuum transforms to a hand-held works perfectly to clean the couch and cushions. I’m wondering if we need to book our cleaners every other month now since Mike is having way too much fun with his new toy (wink, wink).

If you still have Christmas shopping to do, I highly recommend checking out eBay. 81% of all merchandise on eBay is new and available with the “Buy it Now” feature and there’s just so much to choose from. They have everything from holiday decor, baby toys, throw blankets, Christmas tree decorations, and so much more. Be sure to check out all the amazing products from Dyson, too! I’m so intrigued by this hair dryer!
