The life of a stay at home wife/mom is one that includes many things, like cooking, laundry, shopping, bills, cleaning, etc.   A day’s work is never done, and seems to always pile up to the next and the next and the next day.  Not all of us can afford a housekeeper, and sometimes the house chores seem to take longer than what we have time to give them.   I know for me, I am a clean freak but there are things that stop me from being as clean in my home as I want.  Things like, constant remodeling/fixing of this old house.  My very furry dogs, and the fact we heat with wood, in our living room, so we haul wood in daily and that makes a huge mess!  A few years ago I was so crabby every time we hauled in wood.   I am careful, make sure I don’t track much in if anything at all.  But, others here are not so careful, and don’t do the vacuuming so they don’t seem to think about the mess they make.   I tried not to complain, but dang it already… I am only one woman and need help so please pay attention to the mess you are making!  (Ok, I did complain…but not a TON).   Well, even though house cleaning is not the most fun of jobs, I don’t totally hate it.  But, due to our life, I did try to vacuum a couple times a week, which just didn’t seem like enough during heating season.  I have a Dyson Animal Ball and love it, but it is heavy and not always the fastest and easiest way to clean up a smaller mess.  I finally broke down and purchased a Dyson DC 44 that was refurbished.  I had been drooling over them for a while, and just decided to trade in some of my saved gift codes and treat myself.  Well, let me tell you,.. it was one of the best things I ever bought!!  And, my husband even loves it!  But, I have a big house, and sometimes the battery doesn’t last for a full clean.   So, when I was given the chance to do a review of the new Dycon DC59 from Best Buy I was so excited I think I even shed a tear of joy!  I loved my other one, but wanted to new one because it was supposed to be even better.  And, that meant I would be able to have one on our main floor and one on the upstairs level.   YEAH!!
DC59 1

I was so excited when I came home one day to my new Dyson DC59 waiting for me on my front steps.   I brought it in, and put it together right way.  It has a slight charge, so I even got to try it out right away.   WOW ~ This thing has even more power than my other one and I love the more comfortable design.   The fact I can empty the bin easier with a right or left push button helps a lot.   The power button is sleek and easier to push as well.  But, my favorite thing about my vacuum is that it is light, always ready for any job big or small, is compact and easy to store, and now my husband likes to vacuum.  (I think that part is the best).

If you are tired of dragging out the big ol’ vacuum you have got to check out the Dyson DC59 .   You will fall in love with your first vacuuming session.   I use mine at least 2 times a day, and sometimes 3 times.   Depends of what we are doing.  If hubby is in and out and the dogs are in and out and I am a vacuuming queen.  The first thing I do in the morning is usually vacuum.  Yeah, I am that obsessed.   Mostly because I like a clean house, but also because Dyson DC59 makes it so easy to be neat and tidy.   And since we have hard wood floors, linoleum, area rugs and throw rugs it is awesome that this vacuum goes from one, to another, to another with no issues.  Being able to vacuum, cord free, with a light weight vacuum is such a big deal for me.  I love how easy and effortless it is to just grab this cute little thing and zip zip… house is tidy.  Did I say how much I love it?   Well I Do !   But, for as much as I love it I have 2 complaints.  I wish the power button stayed on, as holding it on does become a pain and makes for a sore finger.  And, I wish that it was a bit longer.  I find I have to bend a bit and sometimes that can be a pain in the back.   But, neither of those will make me not use it, or love it any less.   Just a few things maybe Dyson can look at for the next upgrade.  (which I would be more than happy to review again).

  1. Thanks for this review, my husband has looked longingly at this product for a long time. I think he is trying to tell me that I don’t sweep the kitchen enough. I’m tempted to get this just because I know how much he loves our Dyson vacuum and will probably actually use this more than I would.
    Thanks again!
