Last year when I moved out on my own, a vacuum was one of the many things I needed to get myself. A friend of mine helped me out by giving me her old one. It still worked, and I was really grateful not to have to buy a new one. Well, the old vacuum finally stopped working. Luckily there was a sale at Kohl's. I tried the new vacuum out today, and it works really well! It was kind of sick to see the amount of dust that had collected in my carpets. I guess the old one hadn't been doing a good job for a few weeks. Oh well, it's all clean now!
