Danny sold mom's car on Easter and she gave him a nice commission for his work. There are a ton of things that we could have done with the money, but I saw this cute, little steamer at Wal-Mart, and looked it up online. It got great reviews, so Danny and I decided to splurge and buy it. It was only $70 and it's the best $70 we have spent! I love it! My carpet gets really dirty, and this gets it really clean! It's a little disturbing to see the dark brown water that I dump out of it, but that tells me that it's working! It doesn't clean large areas at a time, but that's perfect for us, because with 2 kids running around, we can't have large areas of damp carpets! It also fits nicely in our vacuum closet, and it's not super heavy. I am no longer ashamed to let people see my living room floor!
