    I purchased a Kirby Vacuum a couple months ago, and like you said it picks up EVERYTHING. It's amazing how much better our floors look now, plus it has helped with my allergies. I remember the first time I vacuumed my bed with the Kirby, it was the first night I woke up with no stuffy nose in the morning.

      A $20 Black & Decker steamer. I just throw some veggies in there and don't have to think about them until to the little timer chimes. It frees up space on the stove too! I love it.

        Good question, Tammy!

        I TOTALLY agree about the Dyson Animal. We only have hardwood floors now but it still works wonders.

        My other one is my Macbook. I love that thing and have used it daily for years and it's still going strong!

            I never thought to do this... I am sooo doing it tonight! I'm kinda scared to see all the crap that comes out of the mattresses though

                I think I have my FI convinced I "need" one. My birthday is in June so my fingers are crossed!

                  My best purchase has been my car. I bought a used 99 Sunfire from my aunt for $2000. It's in perfect working order & runs like a dream. It has a bigger gas tank, but is very gentle on actually using the gas! With the prices as high as they are and Mat owning a HUGE beast of a truck - it's been a lifesaver!!
                  He carpools to work & we use my car around town. We have saved SO much in gas since I got it, I don't know what we'd do without it!!!

                    I also own the Expedit bookshelves from Ikea. FI has so many books so we created a pseudo library in our office. We have two huge ones that line either side of the wall. Personally I think shoes and bags should go there but I guess I'll let him have his silly books.

                    The best purchase I ever made was contact lenses when I was 13 and Japanese Straigtening. Not having to spend endless hours blow drying my hair is the best thing ever!
