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.
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!
