yesterday when I went to walmart to get bags for my vacum cleaner I noticed that arm and hammer makes them all now and all that I had to pay was 4.43 for 3 bags does anybody else use bags for their vacum and was it cheaper for you?

I bought a small vacum cleaner about 4 years old with bags. Until today, it still runs very well. The bagS I bought were not that expensive as far as I remember. When it was full, I just brought out the debris by hand and put the bag back into the machine. I only change it every quarterly.

My vaccum is bagless, and I really love it. But the vacuum I had for 20+ years did have bags. And yes they are getting expensive. I used to buy mine at the Dollar General Store. You might want to check your local store and see if they still carry the bags. Hope this helps. Hugs.

For this very reason I decided to get a bagless vacuum cleaner, when my old vacuum broke. I really think that the price is crazy, and it is beginnning to look a bit like the ridiculous prices for ink cartidges. I have a bissel from target that cost 129$, and it has been so worth it. Did you try to look at other places than Walmart, maybe Walmart made an agreement with Arm & Hammer not to carry other brands. You might be able to find them cheaper elsewhere.

i use to use those too and then i got sick of buying them. lol now i use the bagless and i have a carpet cleaner. i also have a shop vac. i love the shop vac. i noticed i was going through so many bags and stuff that and i hated changing them out too. i decided to switch. i have to go get belts all the time though and that drives me crazy cause i can never seem to get the right one the first time lol. my youngest vaccums everything so she breaks the belts. that is one reason i got the shop vac. it lets you vac up almost anything lol
