Back when I answered the question of what to buy for dorm-bound college freshmen, I mentioned this Dirt Devil Simpli-Stik Lightweight Vacuum as a great choice because it’s tiny, gets decent reviews, and regularly dips below $15. Well, today’s the day if you’ve had your eye on it—it’s part of a Dirt Devil trio in the Amazon Gold Box, and you can snag it today for just $14. And if you don’t have a dorm to send it off to, well, it’s a handy spare, to have around, too. (Not gonna lie; I have a stick vac in my kitchen for quick clean-up.)
Now, just to be absolutely clear, when I told my husband I was buying it for our soon-to-be-freshman, he had a good laugh over the notion that I believed she would ever vacuum anything. And he’s probably right to be skeptical. But for $14, I’ll sleep better at night knowing that at least when she drops cookies all over the floor, she’ll have a way to clean up the crumbs.
