Tuesday

My new toy.

When the cost for my vacuum bags went up to forty dollars for a six pack, I decided it was time for a change. This vacuum cleaner cost me twenty dollars more than what I paid for my bags. So far, I'm very pleased with it. It works well and there are no bags to purchase. The downside: Emptying the canister gets a bit messy.

More pictures of Longwood Gardens.

AND...
Classic quote from Justice League.
"What's your super power?"
Bruce Wayne: "I'm rich."


What about you? Hopefully, you are doing something more exciting than vacuuming:) Been to Longwood Gardens? Seen Justice League?

LOVE those gardens. Heart balm on bright and colourful display. And you have reminded me that bringing out the suck monster is overdue.

Valerie-Jael said...

Those gardens are beautiful. My kind of place. You got a good deal on the vacuum cleaner, too, have fun! Hugs, Valerie

Andrew said...

Very pretty flowers. You didn't consider a stick vacuum cleaner? We love ours.

What lovely flower pictures Sandra, gives one a lift after all the bad weather of late.

Hi Sandra - choosing vacuum cleaner is challenging ... and emptying canisters a smelly pain - but a new one is good - at least life will be cleaner. You're welcome to bring it over here to give a bit more exercise?!

Wonderful plant images ... our bulbs are coming up - but so much here is soggy ... we in the south east seem to be better off - wet, but not flooded out.

Enjoy the cleaner house and the new Spring life ... cheers Hilary

My friend gave me a vacuum cleaner for my birthday one year. It's the most difficult thing to use and the on/off switch is in the wrong place. I tell him only a man could have designed it. Yours at least looks much more user friendly.

Wow, those gardens are amazing. Beautiful flowers and lovely photos. Sorry, I've not seen Justice League, so can't cite any quotes.

Pat Hatt said...

Rich would be a fine super power lol

No bags is a win, but yeah, cleaning out the thing can be a pain in the butt.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

That was a great line.
Forty dollars for bags? Wow!

RO said...

Those flowers are pretty amazing, and the quote even better(lol) YIKES on those bags for a vacuum, and kudos to you for grabbing a new one that needs NO bags. too bad we can never find coupons for items like that, right? Hugs and Happy Tuesday to you Super Sandra! RO

Birgit said...

I have n9t seen Justice League but I like that answer. I have never been to that garden but what great pictures you shared and I love that wreath...very original. We were happy when we bought our Dyson which is so lightweight and one I can vacuum with without my wrists hurting at the end.

Heather R. Holden said...

Such gorgeous flowers! And glad to hear the new vacuum cleaner has been working out well for you, and that it will save you money, in the long run!

CJ Kennedy said...

I hate the fact that vacuums don't have bags any more. Emptying the cup just releases all the dirt/dust back into the air. I'd love to go to Longwood Gardens. Beautiful displays. And Wayne's quote cracked me up. Have a good day!

da tabbies o trout towne said...

while the bag less are great; they can be a pain in the sounds like sass; especially with litter dust...though around TT we have to "dig" for 5 minutes before making a deposit, spewing the litter everywhere but IN the box ~~~~~~~~~~

Sandra Cox said...

So glad you enjoyed the pictures.

Sandra Cox said...

Ha. Ha. Suck Monster. I love it. And Heart Balm, what a wonderful way to describe blooming flowers.

Sandra Cox said...

'bring it over for a bit more exercise'. You are so funny:) Though, if I was ever in the vicinity I'd love to sit down for a chat and cuppa;)
Our bulbs are up too, but at their peril. Good luck with yours.
Cheers

Elizabeth Seckman said...

I've gotten used to the bagless vacuum. The only downside is my filters need cleaned and I prefer to do that in the summer, so during the winter, they get a little doggy.

Adam said...

Yeah I never get ones with bags

Sandra Cox said...

No offense to our male blogger buds, but I hear you on man engineering:)
The gardens were fabulous. I hope you get an opportunity to go someday.

Christine said...

I didn't enjoy emptying canisters though.

Sandra Cox said...

Yes and yes:)
Hugs received and returned.

Sandra Cox said...

To be honest, I know next to nothing about stick vacuums. What drew me to this one was its price and blurb on removing pet fur.

Sandra Cox said...

Yes and yes:)

Sandra Cox said...

A great line indeed.
That was my response to the bags, sprinkled with expletives:)

Janie Junebug said...

You have a lovely new toy, but I think toys can be even better if someone else uses them for cleaning. My Roombas have dustbins that need to be emptied, of course. I don't mind too much. I also have a very old Kenmore vacuum cleaner that is mostly good for sucking up palmetto bugs. The bags are very cheap and each one lasts about a year before it's filled with bugs and dog hair.

Love,
Janie

Andrew said...

https://highriser.blogspot.com/2013/09/winning-lottery.html for a brief mention of our stick vac. Seven years later, it is still going strong, with the battery replaced a couple of years ago. I can't pretend that it is as good a sucker as what you have bought. Without pets and high up in the sky, ours mostly deals with dust and sock fluff.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Is that a Dyson? We have both a Dyson and a Rainbow, neither of which takes a bag. And all bags do is spread dust anyway.

Lee said...

I wish I could say I'm rich...but I am not! One can dream! lol

Yvonne said...

Whoah! What??? Forty bucks? For bags? Damn. I must be using the cheap, cheap, cheap, bags annnd? I'm ok with that. :) By the way, lovely photos!

Jeanie said...

Those blooms are dazzling, Sandra. SO pretty. Longing to see an outdoor garden again!

Rick and I share his canister vacuum. It's wonderful (but I agree -- dumping it can get a little dusty! We usually do it outside or in the garage!)

Sandra Cox said...

You'd love the gardens, Ro.
You know I'm not a coupon girl. My opinion, which runs counter to the majority of the world, heh: If the manufacturers are going to knock money off, just do it. Don't make me jump through hoops to get a discount. Of course, people like me save the manufacturers all kinds of money.
Hugs received and returned. Hope your Tuesday was happy.

Sandra Cox said...

That wreath is original, isn't it, Birgit.
Good to know on the Dyson. I agree, lightweight is sooo important in a vacuum cleaner.

Sandra Cox said...

Thanks, Heather:) Glad you liked the flowers. They were beautiful.

Sandra Cox said...

That's the down side, for sure, to the canisters.
I Hope you get to see the gardens.

Sandra Cox said...

I hear ya on both counts, FSG:)

Sandra Cox said...

I hear ya on the doggy:)

Sandra Cox said...

Thumbs up:)

Sandra Cox said...

Can't argue with that.

Sandra Cox said...

I'm fascinated with Roombas.
And...I'd love for someone else to run my vac. Ha ha.

Sandra Cox said...

It's a Bissell. I've heard Dysons are really good. I'm not familiar with Rainbows.

Sandra Cox said...

Wish I could too, Lee:) And I'm not either. Heh. Let's here it for dreaming.

Sandra Cox said...

Dust and sock fluff. I can't imagine what it would be like without critter hair and allergens:) Thanks for taking the time to give me more info, Andrew.

Sandra Cox said...

I'd prefer cheap, cheap myself. Heh.
Thanks:)

Sandra Cox said...

Yes. I've started dumping mine in the garage too.
I'm also ready to see the garden:)

Truedessa said...

I have a Shark which has a canister and I agree they can be messy but, overall it's a great vacuum.

I think those gardens are so beautiful.

All the best Jan
