Joe and I spent the whole weekend moving into our new place.
I used muscles I hadn’t used in a really long time, and by the end of the weekend, I was having a Britney Spears-shave-my-head kind of meltdown.
I’m never moving again.
But hey, our house is amazing! I’m totally in love with it, despite the fat that there’s still so much left to do.
Joe and I had been living in a 2 bed/2 bath condo for quite some time, so to jump from that tiny space to a 4 bed/3 bath place is a bit overwhelming.
Sidenote: Our cat hates the new place. This is him just chilling on our rug, but the other day, I thought we lost him.
We couldn’t find him anywhere! We opened up every single cabinet in the house, moved every single box, checked every single room, and couldn’t find him. Turns out, he was hiding in my pillowcase, pretending to be a pillow.
Guess he’ll have to get used to it.
But anyway, there’s so much cleaning to do!
I realized that this weekend while we were cleaning up the house before bringing in our new furniture.
Now, some people find cleaning to be therapeutic.
I am not one of those people.
But let me tell you something, there’s one product that saved my life this weekend…one thing that made cleaning so much easier…
Here it is…the Hoover Air cordless vacuum.
I must have spent the last few years living under a rock, because I didn’t know that cordless vacuums were a thing.
But they ARE, and I don’t know why anyone would still buy a vacuum with a cord.
This thing is awesome!
First of all, it’s super light, so it’s not a mission to carry it out of the garage.
And then, the fact that it doesn’t have a cord makes it so easy to move around the house!
Like, I actually didn’t mind vacuuming! Like, I actually kind of enjoyed it a little!
I used to get so frustrated when I’d be vacuuming and I couldn’t reach that last spot I was trying to get to because the cord wasn’t long enough.
I’d have to go, find the cord, and then plug it into a different outlet. You know the drill.
But not with the Hoover Air cordless.
MAJOR upgrade right there.
Oh, and I almost forgot! It’s also a hand-held vacuum too!
And with its LithiumLife batteries, the batteries have double the capacity of a standard 18-volt lithium Ion battery, which means longer running time without having to stop and charge it.
See?!?! I told you it’s kind of awesome.
So if any of you will soon be moving, or if any of you just want to make the cleaning process easier, you might want to give this baby a shot.
It’s a first-home essential for sure, and it’ll give you that little bit of sanity that makes all the difference when you’re cleaning.
Other first home essentials?
- Cleaning supplies
- Laundry detergent (we kept leaving this at our old place and couldn’t wash any of our stuff)
- Soap (and yea, we forgot this too…)
- Serving dishes for entertaining
- Coffee Maker
- A ladder (Joe still needs to get one so he can install our new ceiling fan)
- Spray that kills bugs (because I had to kill a spider with a shoe today and I wanted to vomit)
- Blinds (you can get temporary ones at your hardware store that just stick to your window)
Anything else? What home essential can’t you live without, and what do you think about cordless vacuums? Any of you guys have one already? Let me know!
