My vacuum died

What's a gal to do without a vaccum??? I was right in the middle of finishing up my Day 3 cleaning of the playroom and the vaccum just died. I throughly checked and rechecked it and it is not clogged or anything, it just plain won't turn on. We have had old red for 6 1/2 years and it has been faithfully cleaning up the floors. How long is a vaccum supposed to last anyways? I guess mine is probably about 10+ years old with the amount of useage it received, with the daycare and all. Why does it always seem to be that when you get a little breathing room financially, something breaks? It could be worse though, right(knock on wood)? So what kind of vaccum do you have and how long have you had it? Can I really justify buying a Dyson or one of the new Hoovers at that price? I guess I could tell my husband it is a Mother's Day gift to myself :-)

  1. My vacuum died 2 weeks ago. My first vacuum I had for 10 years. My next one lasted 18 months, the next 2 lasted a year, the next one lasted 9 months, then next one 2 months and then 3 months. I finally bought an Oreck. It has a 10 year warranty. I figured in 10 years I had spent more buying cheap vacuums than I spent on one really expensive vacuum. I'll let you know in 10 years if it was worth it! :)
