Back in December, I wrote about how buying a robot vacuum helped me and my partner stop fighting about household chores. Today, that very vacuum, the Eufy BoostIQ RoboVac 11S slim, is $50 bucks cheaper than normal on Amazon with a coupon. I’ve had my Eufy RoboVac for a little over a year now and I still bring it up at dinner parties and in meetings at work. But unlike other product ramblings I have thrust upon my friends and family, talking about the RoboVac elicits actual enthusiasm, smiles, and follow-up questions.
Here is my pitch: Since buying it my partner and I haven’t fought once about vacuuming — something neither of us liked doing before. Now, I love vacuuming. My apartment stays clean with less effort and less stress. I no longer have to bend over to clean under my furniture since it fits easily under most couches and dressers. And if you came over to my place right now, I would confidently invite you to check for dust bunnies under my bed. I joke that this vacuum is like another pet — my sweet round boy — but I also stare at it with non-ironic love as it whizzes across the carpet and inhales a pile of crumbs. It’s definitely made my life easier, and our life as a couple happier.
