Home Is Where My Story Begins

This Really Sucks!

Literally.  This vacuum really sucks.  A few months ago our old vacuum saw its last days. It had served us well.  When looking for a replacement, my first thought was a Dyson.  Oh, how I wanted the Dyson Animal.  Then came reality.  “I’m sorry, HOW MUCH is that vacuum cleaner?” As much as I wanted that Animal, $500 just isn’t in the budget for a vacuum.

We started researching other brands and read lots of reviews.  Over and over, the LG kept popping up.  I know the LG brand, but I had no idea they made vacuum cleaners.  The decision was made.  We said no to Dyson and yes to LG.  We didn’t buy the top of the line.  We are usually middle of the road buyers, and that held true for the vacuum as well. 

I’m telling you, this vacuum sucks!  I vacuum quite frequently because we have a dog and many children running around our house.  I am always SHOCKED by the amount of gross, disgusting, dust, dirt, and dog hair this vacuum picks up.  I empty the canister after each time I vacuum, simply because I can’t believe how much dirt accumulates in just a few days.  Yep, that’s everything my vacuum picked up TODAY! (And I just vacuumed 2 days ago.) It’s official.  My family is disgusting.

    Wow wow wow, that is amazing! How timely this post is! I wanted a Dyson as well and just about fell over when I found out the price of the animal!

    Do you mind me asking where you found this LG? I had no clue they make vacuums either!

    Thanks so much for the information!

    I wish I had seen this post before I ordered one on Amazon the other week! The vacuum I ordered had a review that has me hopeful it will be a good fit for our home, though.

    We have a lab that sheds more than any animal I have ever had and we need a vacuum that has one heck of a powerful suction. 🙂

    What kind of floors to you have? We are putting hardwoods in and the Kirby I have doesn't work well on hard surfaces…my mom bought it when we had shag carpet in the 70s…it even had a shag rake attachment!

    I'm sure all that gunk has nothing to do with the fact that my children were there just two days ago.

    You are not alone in your nastiness. We have four dogs (they are our children). I can only vaccum once a week but empty the canister usually two or three times by the time I get through the whole house. My waste looks like yours every time. I have a Bissell and it sucks too.
