    Default Best Vacuum??

    I am looking into buying a new vacuum. I wish my house had central vac but unfortunately it doesn't and shall remain that way! I have kitties so have some pet hair to worry about. I have hardwood and carpet. I was thinking about the Roomba but it is quite $. I think I need a canister vac as I have stairs in my house. Any recommendations?? Maybe I can get one on a Black Friday deal!

    I have an upright Dyson. It has settings for both carpet and bare floors. They are a little on the pricy side but I will never buy another brand. These are totally worth it. They even make ones specifically for pet hair/dander.

    Dyson, I have 3 (2 regular ones and a small handheld for quick cleans up on my hardwood). I love them.

    Edited to add to I carry my Dyson from the second floor to the first and vacuum each step along the way. That way it lifts the carpet up.

    From the last OT someone recommended a Shark and I took them up on it! Best purchase I have made in a while. I got the Shark Navigator Pro. I am very please and slightly horrified at the amount of dust it is picking up!
