Honestly, I struggle to vacuum consistently, and always had something against Roombas. Maybe it's because I heard they weren't very good, etc. But as soon as I got one, I was pretty annoyed at myself for not getting one sooner! It's so nice to have someone over, be cooking or putting on some makeup, and by the time I'm done, the little Roomba has vacuumed my entire place! It takes one thing off my plate. It's not perfect, of course, but I loooove that thing.
