Confession: Some of us hate bagless vacuum cleaners. Granted, it might be the greener choice because you're not using and throwing away all those bags and you don't have to worry about running out of them when there's an urgent mess to clean up. But isn't it a little self-sabotaging to have invested in a vacuum with a great HEPA air filter to suck up the dust and allergens only to have them all fly right back into your face when you smack the dust cup into the trash? Are we alone in feeling this way? Which do you use, and why?

Sarahrae's BFF is her Eureka vaccum, so if you're this close to marrying your vacuum — bagged or bagless — because it cleans your house so well, tell us that, too!
