Now, if you’ve ever had to replace a vacuum, you know how expensive it can be. Some models run well into the hundreds, and many robovacs are even pricier. But it doesn't have to be that way: Amazon shoppers believe they’ve found the best budget model around: The Bissell Featherweight Stick Lightweight Bagless Vacuum, just $34.
This lightweight, bagless stick vac can convert into a handheld and comes in four great colors.
This bagless baby boasts over 52,100 five-star reviews. Why so many? Besides the price, shoppers rave about how lightweight and versatile it is, tackling carpet and hardwood messes with ease.
It's not just a stick vac either! You can detach the shaft and turn it into a handheld, great for sucking up messes on couches, stairs, counters, cars. Oh, and comes in fun colors like blue, purple and lime as well as basic black.
One pet owner gleefully shared how great it handled dog hair: “This little sweeper does an excellent job of picking up literally everything — dog hair, dust, little pieces of debris,” they said. “The suction is powerful, gets into corners beautifully and the filter is very easy to change and clean.”
Don’t be fooled by its small size — shoppers can attest to its power. Said a five-star fan: “It's so tiny and light and thin, you'd think it would be bad. But it's great!” The reviewer added: “I bought it for work in a preschool classroom. We use it every day over the carpet and tiled areas. It picks up really well and is so light; it’s easy to move around, push, and swivel. My co-worker liked it so much she bought one for her home.”
One even said the Stick surpasses their family's $400 alternative! “I’ve owned this vacuum a little under a year now and it’s got to be one of the best investments of my life,” says the shopper. “It’s lightweight and powerful. I use it on both carpet and hardwood and it will pick up anything, even liquids.... My dad always uses my vacuum, and his $400 Hoover is sitting in the corner collecting dust.
Tory leadership candidate Liz Truss takes a swipe at her rival Rishi Sunak's economic legacy as former chancellor, blaming it for the expected recession.

ROME (Reuters) -The leader of Italy's centrist Azione party said on Sunday it would leave a centre-left election alliance it formed with the Democratic Party (PD) last week, dealing a blow to the coalition's odds ahead of a Sept. 25 ballot. The Green leftist federation and centrist party Impegno Civico had only the day before agreed to join the PD-led bloc, a move that was seen as strengthening a centre-left already lagging behind conservative rivals. Polls show that a conservative alliance is poised to win next month's election, with the far-right Brothers of Italy set to be the largest single party.
