New brooms sweep the cleanest
but give me an old broom over a vacuum cleaner any day! Shortly after we got married, Lucas insisted that we buy a vacuum cleaner. I don't know why, we hardly use the thing. Luckily we used wedding gift money for the purchase. I don't know about you but I find a good broom does a much better job than a vacuum. Maybe it's just because I am more used to brooms, that's what I grew up with, vacuums were for carpets (and why we even have carpeting in the Caribbean is a subject for another entry). Well we don't have any carpeting in this apartment so I never think about uisng it. On the rare occassion that I did pull it out, not only was it way too noisy, but afterwards I still wanted to use the broom! Not to mention having to fight with the hose, attachments, finding an outlet that's not a mile away from the spot you're vacuuming.... a broom is just so much easier to handle! I'm as tech savvy as they get, but for some things I am just an old-fashioned woman.
