NY Good Questions: Do These Carpet Sweepers Work?

Pin it button big

Dear AT,

My fiance and I are moving into a new apartment with two bedrooms, a living room, and a tiny dining room, all carpeted.

Neither of us have vacuum cleaners at our current places, and so we'll need one of those.

Problem is, I hate vacuum cleaning: the vacuums I find are all noisy, heavy, and cumbersome, like the one in this photo from Wikipedia.

I'm also a tightwad, so saving money is more of a priority than keeping the noise down.

We have no kids and no pets, and we're trying to take our shoes off once in the door, so we don't have massive piles of dirt.

Would one of those carpet sweepers work? Thanks! Elyse
