Default Roomba rave

So we got one as an unexpected Christmas gift. I'd always thought we'd not get much use from it and brushed them off.

DUDES. Life-changing. I took the toddler outside to play and my floors got clean at the SAME TIME! And the kids and DH are way more into picking up the floor so the Roomba can clean than they are so I can vacuum. I could probably dissect that and grump but for now, I'll just enjoy it.

Seriously, I just wanted to encourage you guys to consider one. Anything that helps make life a little nicer and easier for a mama

I keep looking at these.

There are so many different nines at different prices. Which one do you have? I would love so so much to get one for birthday/Christmas next year.

The thought of losing a lego piece or your favorite shirt might make it a little easier (J/K about the shirt but it can eat those legos up...LOL).

Default Re: Roomba rave

DH won one at his office Christmas party.
We have used it maybe three times.
I am nervous about it running over stuff it shouldn't, or sucking up curtains. We have in floor outlets, so we do have some cords about even though we try not to.
We have to vacuum every single day, though, sometimes twice, because we have all wood floors that are dark and we can see everything and they scratch super easy. I bet it would be life changing to use it while we sleep or something. I need to get the kids to pick up more so we can use it.

I have dark floors throughout but my kitchen floor is vinyl wood look. I absolutely HATE it. The rest of my floors don't show dirt & dust the way that one does. It's horrible & it's only a year old. hated it from the moment it went in. a Roomba or shark would be a sanity saver. Hoping hubs will relent soon.

I'm waiting for them to come down in price. I love that it would go under my bed and everything.
