    This $30 Dirt Devil Knows How To Work It — Put It Down, Flip It, And Reverse It

    Is it worth it? Let me work it...and find out how hard I gotta work it — which isn't very because it has a16 ft. cord, is bagless, and can go from handheld to stand-alone in just one click.

    In the world of vacuums, there are many. You can get wild and invest hundreds of dollars on state of the art technology you'll show off to your friends when they come to dinner parties you throw in its honor — and then there are the ones you treat like a middle child: spend no money on, hide in a closet, and don't have high expectations for.

    Well, what if I told you there's a vacuum out there sucking up all our frustrations, cleaning up all our annoyances, and surviving all your chaos for under $30? Because there is, and it's a Dirt Devil.

    The Dirt Devil Simpli-Stik Vacuum Cleaner is a 3-in-1 little miracle worker that can actually pick up some serious messes despite its petite and demure appearance.

    It works as a stick vac, a hand vac, or an extended hand vac thanks to all the included attachments — which means it can get every hard to reach crevice your home might have and suck up messes on carpeted, tiled, or hardwood floors.

    It also comes with a reusable (cleanable) filter that can hold up to 0.35 liters of all the gunk it sucks up — the filter is actually rinse-able, just make sure to let it dry for at least 24 hours before its next use.

    With nearly 8,000 5-star reviews (7,999 at the time this article was published, to be exact) it must be pretty good! Reviewers point out that this little guy is well worth the quick buy — lasting for years and perfect for cleaning up those everyday messes.

    Some reviewers also point out how great it is at cleaning up the everyday tumbleweeds caused by your hairy friend's fur.

    Oh, did I mention that kids love playing with it? 'Cause they do and may end up cleaning up your whole house while they "play."

    And yes, this handy Dirt Devil does have a cord, which I know in this day and age can be a little annoying, BUT it's 16 FEET LONG! 16 FEET! In my tiny apartment, 16 feet basically covers the span of the whole place. Plus, the vacuum is set up to neatly hold the cord, all wrapped up.

    Look, this lady in red isn't going to replace your state of the art shop vac but she will get the job done. So go ahead and check out the Dirt Devil Simpli-Stik Vacuum Cleaner on Amazon for $28.82. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
