My #1 Pick for BEST Vacuum Cleaner 2018
The hubby bought me this AMAZING vacuum for Christmas this year – and it is fantastic!
It’s lightweight, goes from carpet to hardwood and ceramic tile floor flawlessly and it certainly sucks up the dirt I didn’t even realize my floors and carpets had left behind after using another vacuum cleaner.
Let’s face it, when you’re decluttering your life, you NEED a really good vacuum cleaner, right?
Best Vacuum for the Money 2018
Hands down, no doubt…. THIS vacuum cleaner is the best for your money.

It’s that time of the year when I like to do a big round-up post of all the best vacuum cleaners available for the current year.
It takes a lot of time to put it all together, but instead of making you wait until it’s 100% complete, I will start it and edit as I collect new reviews, consumer reports, and feedback.
Best Vacuum Cleaner for 2018?
This is a tough one – to pick ONE best vacuum for 2018 since everyone has different needs from a vacuum. I’m still looking into it, but as of this moment, it’s coming down to a Shark or a Dyson.
Sidenote: I obviously made my final decision after using THIS wonderful vacuum!
Best Vacuum Cleaner Reviews
Lots of great places to get vacuum cleaner reviews. Start here to begin your research.
Best Vacuum for Hardwood Floors
I have a good bit of hardwood flooring in my house so I look forward to this best vacuum category. These are my current picks for best hardwood vacuums.
Best Vacuum for Pet Hair
I also have 2 cats, so any vacuum that is tough on cat hair is a winner in my book. Here’s why Dyson’s are so great for pet hair.
Best Bagless Vacuum Cleaner
I currently use a bagless – I tend to prefer bagless vacuums – however there are some new vacuums out now in 20187 that have AMAZING HEPA filters that I’m going to look into. My research started here.
Best Lightweight Vacuum Cleaners
This is also a tough category to pick just one winner, but for MY house, I love this lightweight vacuum cleaner.
Best Vacuums for Stairs
Stairs, oh how I hate vacuuming thee! But, this category must be decided also. This is the best vacuum for carpeted stairs.
Consumer Reports on Vacuum Cleaners
Naturally, the gold folks over at Consumer reports have plenty to say.
Overall Best Vacuum for Carpet
Again, a tough category, but I’ve got it narrowed down to my choice for best.
Top 10 Vacuum Cleaners Under $300
Finished this category already – see the Top Vacuum Cleaners Under $300 here.
Best Vacuum for Tile Floors
I don’t think my vote will change from the tile floor vacuum I picked for 2017.
Best Value – Best Vacuum for the Money
Some amazing deals on top-rated vacuums out there – gonna see which low-price sticks and gets my “Most Affordable” award.
Best Handheld Vacuum for Pet Hair
I don’t do much with handhelds because I have bad hands and a wicked case of Tennis Elbow in both arms. My vote will remain the same with this being the best handheld for pet hair.
