Feeling lucky today? *Giveaway!*

GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!


A few months ago I won a giveaway on Kayla's blog. It actually was supposed to be for a crockpot, but sadly the crockpot went out of stock before the giveaway ended. Actually, let me admit something--since I sort of have a phobia of the kitchen--I wasn't toooooo disappointed (but Declan was). Instead, I got to pick my own goodies out.

We were in need of a little hand vac at the time.

A hand vac, yes.

You may not think that's too exciting, but I did.
I thought of the million ways it would help me clean up baby cheerio spills or when a bunch of goldfish crackers get stepped on by little feet in the future (instead of lugging out the big 'ole vacuum).

AND- it's cordless, people. Cordless=convenient.

So, when mine got delivered, I charged up that sucker [no pun intended], and started going to town with it. It actually became my side-kick when I clean the three bathrooms in my home. Honestly, its 10x easier using that little sucker to get up unwanted hair and such before doing a final wipe down/mop of the floor.

I'm a genius, I know. Now you know my secret.

So, today I'm partnering with CSN--you know who I'm talking about. They are out there like crazy in blog world doing all sorts of amazing giveaways that consist of kids bedding, cooking supplies and other cool things.

You get a chance to win your very own Dirt Devil Extreme Power cordless hand-vacuum, since, I loved mine so very much--I wanted to share the love with you.


Oh, and little secret: this one is even better then the one I own. It even comes with a recharging station and the handy dandy tool is already attached and just flips up and down. Love it.

  1. Oooh, I want one! I have been wanting a good cordless hand-vac for ages. I'm 5 feet tall. My big vac is the same size I am - aka NOT CONVENIENT! :)

    Hope you're feeling great today!

  4. I would love this because it would be great for cleaning out my car, so I don't have to get an extension cord to bring the big vacuum outside. It would also work really well for vacuuming up the fireplace.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Love it! Want it! Please make all my cleaning dreams come true!

  6. I hate vaccuming, mostly becuase I hate hauling that big thing around the house. maybe if I won a small one I wouldn't hate that job so much :-)

    Great giveaway!

  7. love csn.

    love this little vacuum.

    i need it because i have 3 cats who leave clumps of hair wherever they step. and it gathers underneath my socks as i walk across the hardwood floor. this vacuum would be much easier than carting my big vacuum downstairs.

  8. I'd like to add this bad boy to my regular small-dog (hair) cleaning team. My little pooches gets waffs of hair blown in all sorts of directions, and I wouldn't have to sweep or bring out the large vac to suck around the corners if I had this! Check my blog out sometime if you get bored! http://babymakesfour-tsands.blogspot.com/

  9. I don't want it...I NEED it! I can't haul a big ol' vacuum around when I'm preggo, and this would be perfect for all of Logan's snacky messes on the couch! Please pick me!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I bounced up and down in my seat when I saw this giveaway. (I probably would have squealed too, but I'm at work). I've embraced getting excited about cleaning supplies and this would clinch it for sure! We have a dyson and we love it, but for those little nooks and crannies, this little guy would be perfect. Ooh, whoever wins this will be lucky indeed!!!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I lust for this! I am very anal retentive and I hate when there is dirt I can't get to! What a great item!!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Such a great giveaway!! I would LOVE to have this vacuum! I don't have a hand-held vac - just a big ole regular vac, and I hate pulling it out for just some small mess. It would also be great for cleaning out my car...which really needs to be cleaned out!! =.) Thanks, Katie!

    ReplyDelete
  13. our just broke... please let me win!!!! :)

    I am of course a loyal follower!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I was just telling Hubby a couple days ago that we need a hand held vac. This little devil would be very handy to clean up after the boys and the dog!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Go CSN! This is a sweet giveaway! It would definitely be nice for picking up the clumps of dog hair that accumulate in the TWO days since I swept last!!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Oo Oo Oo *hands raised* Please pick me! I have TWO kids that love to make messes in my house! Being a working momma, I need all the time saving tools I can get :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Ooooh this would be fabulous to have around the house! I could think of many places to use it, but like you said I would use it on the floor before I mop. I also thing it would be great to use for the car!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Ok, we have two cats... Which means hair (gross) which means endless sweeping and vacuuming! So, with this "bad boy", I would be able to clean up those little hair balls much easier and quicker! :-) So hand it over missy! I'm not really expecting to win, since you won the other one for my giveaway, but a girl can dream! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Hi Katie!! Of course I am a follower and an every day reader too :) I would love this bad boy for all my stairs!! I have a three story townhouse like you and vacuuming all those stairs is anything but FUN!! I hate it actually...So I reaaaaaalllly hope I win.

    ReplyDelete
  20. My apartment floors are covered with sequins and glitter from decorating young students artwork. I live in an old house and have lots of hard to reach corners filled with dust. This would be fantastic!!!!

  21. I definitely need this little guy...actually my kids need it. I would make them use it to clean the stairs going to our basement...such a pain to lug a big vaccuum up those:-) Pick me pick me!!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. If it will help me clean my bathroom (my most dreaded chore!), I definitely want one! Great giveaway!

    And of course I'm a follow :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh wow! I want! This would be fabulous for sucking up those random clumps of dog hair our giant lab leaves around! I have something similar as part of our Shark sweeper vac, but it has a cord, so I almost never use it!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I can definitely make use of this! I need one to clean my car. I got a car vacuum a couple years ago and it doesn't work very well! :(

    I can also use this in my room, bathroom, and everywhere around the house! Hopefully I'm the winner! Yay! I'm getting excited :D

    ReplyDelete
  25. This would definitely help me keep my house clean! I have such a time lugging a big ol' vacuum up and down the stairs!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh I love it! I have kitty that loves to tear open kitty weed (cat nip) and scatter it all over our carper... then roll in it... He also adores scattering his clean cat litter ll over the laundry room.... I think he has a distruction mind frame.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Woohoo I'm so excited! This would come in handy in so many ways...

    Cleaning up the hair in the bathroom.

    Getting dust off of ceiling fans

    Cleaning up all the grass my pups drag in the door with them

    I'm sure I could think of more!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I would love it to get up all the messes my dogs make when they destroy a stuffed animal or rope.

    ReplyDelete
  29. oh I want one! I just postd yesterday about how much I HATE vacuuming the stairs.. this little vacuum would make that chore so much easier ;)

    ReplyDelete
  30. I would LOVE this little vaccuum!! I have massive stairs that lead to the second story, just TRY lugging the Dyson ball up stairs, ridiculous.. Thanks for the great giveaway!!

    ReplyDelete

  35. Would LOVE this to use in the bathrooms and under the fridge and stove where every dropped crumb seems to end up.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh man...I've got a story for why this would have been so useful LAST weekend :) We had family over for some Chili and a birthday party, and my elderly grandpa had a bit of a spill of chili all over his pants. Not to mention, shredded cheese all over my couch and floor. I proceeded to bust out the big vac and it's hose to vacuum up the mess. It was a pain in the butt to get that big vac out and try to work around my grandpa without having to move him too much. (He doesn't get around too well). This little vac would have been the perfect solution. So since I see spills happening again and again, this vac would be perfect!

    I Love following your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  37. would love this to help clean my car and all those little spots the vacuum can't quite manage!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oh man I could totally use that to suck up some of the crazy amounts of dog hair that frequently visit the corners of my household!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I want it because I do have a little boy, and we are at that stage starting to give cheerios and gerber puffs. Also I have a cat, and pet hair and kitty liter pieces are a pain to pick up!

    ReplyDelete
  40. ME! ME! PICK ME!

    I also use a Vacuum to clean my bathrooms as well! BUT usually I have to bring the big old vac in, and drag out the hoses!

    What a GREAT giveaway!!!

    I OBVIOUSLY follow. You're a great read!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I'm a follower! I'd love something like this to pick up all the dog/cat hair around our place! Great giveaway!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I would love to win this little devil because then maybe I would become more excited about cleaning!! I am a follower already :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. I'd love to win this because right now all I have is a teeny-tiny hand brush and dustpan. It takes sooo long to clean with that!

    ReplyDelete
  44. i heart cleaning....i know, total freak! my trusty hand held vac is on it's last leg. i would love to win a new one!!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Oh. My Gosh. I want this! It seems amazing! We never got one off of our wedding registry. I love your blog (and yes, I'm a follower!) :-) XOXO and happy blogging!

    ReplyDelete
  46. So my brother always makes fun of me because I am losing hair like a mad woman. I have very thick hair and it falls out all the time. It gets into corner where no man, but the dirt devil could reach. This vacuum would be put to great use. (:

    ReplyDelete
  47. Count me in and you know that I'm a follower. This would be so helpful in cleaning the stairs in our home!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'm a follower! I would like it beacuse it would make cleaning the stairs so much more convenient.

    ReplyDelete
  49. What a FABULOUS giveaway. OK let me just say i have a big black dog who sheds. ALOT. and this would come in handy *so much* for all those lil nooks and crannies we cannot reach with the big vacuum (that we barely use, did i just say that? shit)

    ReplyDelete
  50. I'm a follower Katie! (not in real life, just in blogworld! haha) ;) Well, I would use it to clean up after my one year old who throws his food off the side of his highchair...it;s getting annoying dragging out the big vac all the time!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Why would I like to add this guy to my home?

    Well this past summer I moved into a nice house with wood floors. While the floors are beautiful, they attract giant HERDS of dust buffalo. I'm not talkin dust bunnies here but giant buffalo clumps that drift from one floor to the next. I can see thsi mini vac coming in handy to catch those little suckers up!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I'll be moving out of state soon and my current roommate is the one with the vacuum. This will help tide me over while I buy everything else I need.

    ReplyDelete
  53. That little machine would be put to GOOD USE at our house. 9 month olds made lots of good messes (and are excellent at finding the little crumbs you somehow missed), add to that living on a big dairy farm and you have got a messy situation. Lots of dust, lots of hair loss (post pregnancy...yuck), and lots of baby messes makes for lots of uses for a little hand vac! :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. Oh my gosh my boyfriend and I are in dire need of a vacuum for our 800 square foot apartment and this would be perfect! Did I mention we have a kitten? Kitten=cat litter mess! Thanks for hosting this giveaway. Oh, and I'm already a follower :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. This would be great to help clean up after my sweet puppy Fifi!

    ReplyDelete
  56. how fun!! I love cordless vacs! Enter me :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. I'm a follower and would LOVE this! I've been dying to get a hand vac since we moved into a house that has 2 sets of carpeted stairs! That would make life so much easier on cleaning day!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I'm already a follower and this would be great in the house as well as cleaning out the inside of the car!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Um, I would totally clean up all the nasty cat hair all over our house! Oh, and the crumbs on the couch left by my husband... Haha ;)

    ReplyDelete
  60. SWEEEET! I am definitely a follower and would love this vacuum. I have a sweet dog (who sheds a bit) but a crumby hubs(and by that I mean crumbs from food-he is wonderful). It would be great to have help cleaning up after them both.

    ReplyDelete
  61. PS - I would LOVE this because I have two little puppy dogs that like to leave their fur everywhere! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  62. I definately would love one of these bad boys! After all I have a new granddaughter coming and I will need to pick up all those cheerios that she dumps at my house!

    ReplyDelete
  63. When did the blog world become so full of giveaways? I am certainly not disappointed. WE live in an apartment that is uber dusty and that would be so helpful for our bathrooms and the corners that gather dust (not to mention the kitchen.) Uh, I cannot wait to live in a real house someday.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Oh I could use one for sure.... hair.. hair and more hair. Did I say hair.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Sarah (newer reader)March 10, 2010 at 8:37 AM

    OOOOOHHHHH with baby number 1 on the way here too this would be the best tool to have!! Please pick me!!

    ReplyDelete
  66. How cool! CSN hit me up to do a giveaway too but I told them they probably wouldn't get a lot of traffic from my blog for 'kids bedding' since you know, there are no kids over there and all! :-) I'm glad you got to do it!

    And definitely count me in! I would loooove a had vac to clean up all this dog hair! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  67. I have always wanted that lil bad boy! I have 2 dogs and let me tell you how inconveinent it is to lug that vacuum out all the time to clean in the little spaces that dog hair seems to collect. It would make housecleaning so much easier, and would get used like everyday!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Oh I can think of so many reasons why I would want one...great for kick pick up, stairs, annimal fur and all the messes my husband makes!:) I hope I win!

    ReplyDelete
  69. cordless and silver? please count me in!

    ReplyDelete
  70. Okay..where have I been that I totally didn't know about this until just know? I don't know. What I do know is that our first little "sucker" didn't suck for very long. So it all too quickly found its way onto the list of things that doesn't stand up to labradoodle hair. Now--living in the span of 2 rooms with all that hair collecting into certain corners...I could surely use one of those again.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Hi Katie! What an awesome giveaway, I must say. :) I'd LOVE to have this cordless vac! Seeing as we have 2 dogs and a cat in our house...it would be perfect to clean up all that hair on the hallway, kitchen, and every other floor in the house!

    ReplyDelete
  72. ohhh I would love a cordless vacuum!! We have a new kitty that makes a huge mess. And all our computers kick out so much dust!!

    ReplyDelete
  73. http://tinyurl.com/yhj4ajd <- that little angel is why I need this... nuff said :-)

    ReplyDelete
  74. Well, you know about my girls, and one is a lab so that is the biggest reason why I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to have one!!!

    ReplyDelete
  75. Thank you so much! I like a clean room and this would work great! Thanks!
