 I love cleaning and organizing tools to help out around the house, and I'm trying to come up with ideas for my Christmas wish list, and hoping you can help me... Anywhere from $3 to $300 is fine.

  • Kenmore Canister Vacuum, Yellow - 26082

    I love this Kenmore Canister Vaccuum, Yellow 26082. It's great for carpet around on the stairs, in corners, curtins, hard to reach areas. For only $50 too!

  • The regular swiffer.  It is a life saver with wood floors.  I just have the standard one and use the dry cloths and wet cloths.  Also- I usually just do a dry sweep nightly, and can use the same cloth for close to a week.  I'd feel pretty darn guilty throwing one of those bad boys away each day, but weekly to have spotless floors is ok with me!


  • I love the Pledge pet hair grabber. I'm not sure the official name of it, but it's awesome. You would not believe the clumps of cat hair it gets off my furniture!
  • I second the microfiber cloths - I use them for everything!

    I also love my storage ottomans and I've suggested them several times in other posts. It's a simple piece of furniture, and so versatile. We have one in the living room to hold blankets and the overflow of our DVD collection, and another one at the end of our bed to store seasonal clothing. It would work great as a bench in an entry way or for toy storage in a family room... the options are endless. BB&B has reasonably priced ottomans if you're interested! 

  • My label maker... Love it!!!

  • Three part laundry sorter.  Every day I bring the hamper to the basement and sort everything into whites, delicates, or heavy (jeans, sweats, most of DH's stuff).  Then when a section is full I do a load.  Before I always used to bring a full hamper downstairs, sort my piles on the floor.  Inevitably I didn't have enough in every category to do full loads, and it was just an unorganized disaster.
  • It's not exactly a cleaning tool, but sort of a laundry tool:  I love the Eddie Bauer sweater stone.  It makes all of your sweaters look new again.
  • I used to be a Swiffer-a-holic, too, but I felt really awful about throwing away all the cloths.  I got this a few months ago and am in love:

    The lambs wool duster is washable and seriously picks up every last speck of dust/pet hair.  Love it.
