Since we moved to South Carolina and into our new house, I’ve wanted a robot vacuum. With the combination of Adi (and then eventually Brooke too), Stephen and I both working full-time, and our dark floors, I felt like I couldn’t keep up. I would come home from work and vacuum for half an hour and then before we went to bed I felt like I already needed to vacuum again. As crazy as this might sound, I actually enjoy vacuuming but with considering how many other things I have to do daily, it just didn’t seem like an efficient use of my time. Hence my desire to own a robot vacuum.
I was hoping to get one for Christmas but my mom surprised us when she sent us one after Stephen and I had helped her at home when we visited last time. It was such a pleasant surprise. I was over-the-moon excited to start using it. I didn’t want to say much about it until we tested it out for a while so after two solid months of using it, I’m really excited to share what we think!
THIS is the vacuum that my mom ended up purchasing. It was relatively inexpensive compared to other options out there and it has good reviews on Amazon. We named him Nigel. The more he’s in the house, the more we find ourselves talking to him like he’s another dog. It’s hilarious!
We keep the charger to the vacuum in the office corner. This spot has worked best for us because there aren’t any doors that can keep the vacuum separated from the charger. When the vacuum is done cleaning, it’s able to make its way back to the charger on its own! It looks like a “walk of shame” but hey, it makes it (and makes us laugh every time).
We really hope this helps if you’re interested in purchasing a robot vacuum. We absolutely love ours and definitely think that the pros far outweigh the cons. This would be a great Christmas gift (reminder: it’s currently on sale)! If you decide to get yourself a “Nigel” we’d love to hear what you think about it! I’ve also already received messages about what you named your robot vacuum. You guys are hilarious!
