Too much bother to gert out the vacuum cleaner used broom

No this is not a too lazy, but our vacuum cleaner is in the guest room. Now we have a small guest room, it used to be one of our sons;'s bedroom but this house should have been a two bedroom instead of a three bedroom house, even the master bedroom is small, so with the bed in the guestroom, there is not much room for anything else, not even a dresser, and that is the only place to put the vacuum cleaner. We have to move everything to take it out, so I only vacuum when needed, most of the time we use the sweeper on the linoleum. Well with all the Christmas presents in the guest room, plus the other mattress, I did not want to take out the vacuum cleaner, and there were a few crumbs on the living room carpet, so I decided to use the broom there, and it worked. It is amazing how much dust balls there were. So have you done this, used the broom where you would have usually used the vacuum cleaner? I know I did it when our vacuum cleaner was broken.

I use the vacuum usually. When I get out the vacuum, I do the entire house. My vacuum goes from wood to carpet with a flip of a switch, so it is easy enough. I have never tried to use a broom on the carpet, but will keep that in mind for future reference.

Hi suspenseful, I don't have a vacuum cleaner - my house is small and the floors are tiled witha few rugs scattered around. We use a broom and the tiles are mopped several times a week - my grand twins make a lot of mess! I used to have one but it seemed easier to use the broom so this is what we do, and it works out quite well. None of us miss it. How are your Christmas preparations going? Blessings my friend
