Get nimble! [Contest Closed]

Thank you to everyone that commented, liked and tweeted. Congratulations to our winner, Marisa Niles!  Marisa, we hope you enjoy the Electrolux nimble!

Before I had children, vacuuming was just another household chore to-do on an otherwise tedious list.

After I had children, vacuuming became THE chore. The one thing that gets done even when we’re eating off paper towels and wearing the same sweat pants for the third consecutive day. Why? Well, because it annoys me when I have to lint roller off my baby after tummy time and despite many tutorials to show her otherwise, my daughter thinks “baking” means “throw flour around the kitchen”.

You too?!

Well, you’re in luck because we’re giving away an Electrolux nimble®.

If you’ve read Rachael’s review you know what a life-changing experience it was for her household— “nimble it” has become a battle cry. Here are the nimble® highlights; a 14 foot telescopic wand, maneuvers so smooth it will make you blush, and a 3-in-1 Versa Tool to clean stairs, corners and crevices. Plus a HEPA filtration and a bag-less design. This baby is so powerful that when you tell your kids that the vacuum monster is going to eat their toys, you’ll really mean it. (Oh come on, I’m not the only one that does that.)

Look at that hose action! I bet that sucker would reach my ceiling fan.


To enter, just leave us a comment sharing your favorite household chore. (Mine is eating leftover cake…hey, someone has to cross that off the to-do list, might as well be me.)

You can get extra entries by liking Today’s Mama on Facebook or sharing this contest on Twitter with the tweet below:

Just make sure to leave a comment letting us know you “liked” or tweeted. We’ll pick one random winner on Saturday, August 13th (contest closes 8/13 @ 5p MST). Good luck!

    Crazy as this sounds, my favorite chore is folding the laundry. I just LOVE to look at my kids cute little clothes!! Plus I love it when their clothes are clean and put away and are ready for another day of wear!

    My favorite household chore is washing dishes. Sounds silly doesn’t it, but it gives me time to think and dream while washing.

  7. Joseph Menard 08/13/2011 at 11:23 am

    Boy do I ever need a new vacuum . My vacuum is almost as old as I am. It hardly picks up anything.

  10. brandi 08/13/2011 at 8:04 am

    My favorite chores are sweeping and dusting. I love watching dust and dirt disappear! 😉

    My fave household chore is … would you believe doing the windows? Once you do them, it is one of the few things that I can trust to stay done.

  14. Grace Day 08/13/2011 at 7:48 am

    I like to eat something good that I have cooked and is left over while I am reading. I know its a very bad habit but I love to.

  15. David ODonnell 08/13/2011 at 7:42 am

    My favorite chore would have to be the cooking but that also leads to my unfavorite chore (Dishes) lol

  21. CDavis 08/11/2011 at 8:39 am

    I don’t love any housework, but I love a clean house so, if I had to choose, I’d say my favorite is cleaning the kitchen.

    I *really* love to vacuum. It’s my “quiet time” – the only time during the day that the kids RUN AWAY FROM ME AND HIDE! Needless to say, I vacuum 2 or 3 times a day sometimes so I can tune out…

  24. Mrs. Organic 08/11/2011 at 12:20 am

    I’m a vacuum maven, but my favorite chore will always be laundry. THere’s just so much of it.

    My favorite household chore is simply wiping the kitchen counters down…it’s an easy way to make the room look so much cleaner!

  27. spoonstarlet 08/10/2011 at 12:47 pm

    My favorite chore is plating our meals.What a great way for me to reward good little boys (extra helpings of the good stuff)and a way to get a small victory against bad little boys (extra helpings of spinach!). Or against the bad big little boy(husband gets no food at all!)

  28. Tresure 08/09/2011 at 9:56 pm

    My favorite chore is any chore when finished you feel cleaner, happier, and life has order again.
