My Swiffer Sweeper+Vac Infatuation

by Tara Kuczykowski on June 25, 2008 · 16 comments

My kids are messy . . . really messy. The amount of crumbs that amass under my kitchen table through three meals a day, plus throw in a snack or two, well, it's just astounding. And I must confess, I really hate sweeping. It's just darn near impossible to make a nice neat pile of dust, dirt, and whatever morsels the kids have dropped with the five of them and two Italian Greyhounds running around.

Swiffer Sweeper+Vac

That's where my Swiffer Sweeper+Vac comes to the rescue. I really, really, really, REALLY love this thing. It makes cleaning up their messes a breeze – well, as long as I remember to plug it back in to recharge it after using it that is. I don't mind giving the kitchen floor a quick once over with this several times a day.

It's quick, easy, and there's no messy dustpans to deal with. You just open the little compartment that collects the dirt, dump it, and put it back. Every few days I change the cloth, and I'm good to go! BTW, I've got some great frugal tips for saving money on those cloths, but we'll get to those another day.

You can pick one of these up at your local Walmart, Target, or KMart, just to name a few, and right now, you can get a $5 coupon by signing up to receive Swiffer promotions. Come on – join me in my infatuation!

I love this thing too. Though I haven't used it much lately. The budget has been tight and I haven't had the $4 to spend on the refills when toilet paper seems so much more important.

I would love to hear your suggestions on being frugal with the sheets!

We just got hardwood floors & was trying to decide what to get to keep them clean (I hate sweeping too) & hubby walked in & found his mom using one of these in her home. She loves her & now I do too!

4 shedding dogs, 2 kids (mine) ?? kids (friends) & numerous adults.

It's so nice to know that I'm not the only one out there with an unhealthy obsession with my Swiffer Vac.

I promise to post more frugal tips on the cloths soon, but you might want to check out my post for the CVS deals for the week of 6/29 in the meantime. They're offering $5 ECBs when you spend $10 on Swiffer cloths. Pair that with some coupons, and you can get a really great deal!!!
