Nothing feels better than when people exclaim “I can’t believe how tidy your house is!” I can’t either to be perfectly honest, and if you were just five minutes earlier you would have not spoken those words. I’ve discovered that having a place for things to go when you’re in hurry is critical. But more than that, is a way to zip up clouds of dog hair and sandy footprints – welcome the Dyson handheld vacuum. I’ve literally become a crazy lady about this vacuum. It works wonders. It doesn’t plug in so we can quickly grab it and clean up. And when we vacuum regularly – it’s not as disastrous when we actually do clean up. It’s a miracle.
