When we surveyed New York City’s professional cleaners on what makes the best cheap vacuum cleaner, the one trait that came up time and again was a compact body for storage in closets or under a bed, because New Yorkers rarely have an inch to spare for storage. It’s why we were pleased to spot this thin, upright Dirt Devil on sale at Amazon. It has a lightweight frame for passing over hardwoods, a powerful 10 amp motor for suctioning pet hairs and lodged-in crumbs, plus it’s bagless for added convenience. And today it’s just 30 bucks, which is 40 percent off its original price.
