Why I Chose a Corded Shark Vacuum

Before I understood what blogging even was, I followed Mary Hunt's Everyday Cheapskates. I'd get her emails and excitedly read her reviews and her tips, as well as reader tips she'd share. I learned a lot from Ms. Mary and made more than one consumer choice based on her recommendation. She's the real deal and I'm happy to say she's still busting out good content.

One of the products I purchased based on her review was the Shark Navigator Pro. I loved the hose, tools, and the easy cleaning system. However, last month my sweet hubby decided to vacuum his new-to-him john boat while it was still damp. After a few days, I went to use my vacuum and almost choked on the old fish smell. Yuck! In addition, the motor didn't seem to appreciate the fish smell either (ok, it was the water).

I decided to search for Mary's blog and see if she updated her vacuum post. Well, she did! And guess what? She still recommends the Shark Pro if you're shopping for a corded vacuum. I ordered one off of Amazon that she linked. It's even better than our last Shark and at $199 it's affordable!

Sometimes a cord is annoying but honestly, battery charging, etc is a nuisance to me. Pros and cons, right?

The vacuum is lightweight with a removable base for convenient stair vacuuming or when you need to get in those more awkward places.

I love the attachments! The hose comes with three attachments. One with a brush, a narrow headpiece for hard to reach places, and a pet tool.

The pet tool is a must in my house with a dog AND cat that sheds! I use that pet tool over every cushion and pillow in this house. Sometimes I even go over my bedspread in between washes since we let our pets have full reign. Sigh. 

Maintenance is easy! After the job is done, I dump out the dirt and debris and the filter is periodically cleaned with warm soap and water. 
What is your vacuum of choice? Is cordless a must for you? It's been about three months since I replaced my old Shark with this new Shark and I'm still loving it. Thankfully, Shark continues to make good quality vacuums.

  1. Gotta check out Mary's blog - sounds very useful! I finally got a Dyson last spring and I love it - so easy and perfect for what I need. It makes such a difference when you get the right vacuum!

  2. This vacuum sounds great! That pet attachment is so handy! We had our Dyson for years and love it.

  4. Ok I need to check out MAry's blog! I need a new vacuum for upstairs but a cordless is a must for downstairs with the hardwoods!

  5. What a great vacuum! And these photos are just too darn adorable. I wish I looked so cute vacuuming. But instead, I usually end up in tears because vacuums hate me! LOL
