We have a winner - Simplicity

The polls are closed, and we have a winner!

(The kids are excited, can you tell?)

(Actually, this is just my normally well-behaved children reminding me that more training and instruction is required when we put off running errands until nap time. Rest is so important to the skills of focus and listening to Mommy's directions about acceptable behavior in stores. I think that is a different post...)

We have a new vacuum cleaner. It is a Simplicity and it was purchased at Stark's Vacuums in Beaverton, with the help of Ben, our friendly sales person.

I'd like to say thank you to all of you who have provided input on this decision.

We reviewed the consumer reports testing results and were deciding between the Kenmore Intelliclean (about $250 on sale) and Eureka Boss (about $140 at Costco). On my way to Sears to check out the Kenmore, I decided to stop at Starks, the local vacuum dealer, and see what they had to offer. Ben immediately directed us towards the Simplicity lines.

For $350 we have a reliable machine with a 7 year warranty and the first 3 annual tune-ups included. I expect it to outlast the warranty.... but nice to know that it will at least be around for that long... and it's light enough that Noah can push it.

Starks also takes away our old broken Bissel machine and will recycle it so that it doesn't end up in a landfill!
(Noah is saying good bye to the old machine)

  1. Hey friend! My parents and in-laws own Simplity's and have for years. I even enjoy vacuuming at their houses! I think you made a great purchase.


Tell me about it....
