Needed to buy a vacuum for our apartment but it needed to be one that was convenient to use and did the job! Initially thought of the larger vacuums but fell in love with the easy to carry and clean wet/dry vacuum from Craftsman. Bought this for a bargain at 14.99$ only and added a one year warranty purchase of 2.25$ to the bill. Including taxes we only paid a total of 18.66$ for this vacuum and it does the job....I'm able to reach the hidden areas under heavy furniture, behind sofas, window pane slides and more. I would suggest this buy for anyone needing a convenient vacuum especially when you need to clean frequently with small kids in the house. This is a great vacuum for the car as well. Serves our purpose both at home n outdoors too. Sears sells this at all their stores.
