Never have I ever loved an appliance so. My uber mini dust buster(that really didn't work all that great) finally died and I got a mini shop-vac. I love the thing. After I sweep the floors it is so great to get this thing out (with other attachments as well!) for corners, small rugs, and (the ever so dangerous) stairs. One day I'll get the big boy shop vac... I dream big people. I dream big.
