    Yes all the time because we're renovating and DS is always on the floor.
    My vacuum is always out and accessible.

    I vacuum lounge and kitchen daily cos it seems to be so messy all the time thanks to DS (17mo) not wanting to eat in his high chair! Vac everywhere else every second day DS LOVES vacuuming so will follow me around while I do it and he has a go every now and then.

    Yes, the lounge room and kitchen get done everyday, sometimes twice a day. The other rooms at least once or twice a week. We have a very small house, it takes 5 minutes to do the living room and kitchen and 10 minutes to do the whole house. It makes such a difference to the way the house looks, and with two fluffy cats and a destructive toddler it's a necessity.

    I have an upright Dyson our hall cupboard it takes less than 10 minutes to throw all the toys in the toy box and whip around the dining, kitchen, lounge and entry Where leaves and crap get tracked in. Id vacuum most days. Id do a "good vacuum" more like twice a week where id actually move furniture, lift mats etc.

    Oh geeze, I never thought I'd say this but I want a small house! We are renting and our current place is 3 bedrooms, bathroom, toilet, tow large lounge rooms, kitchen, hall, entryway and dining! I think the reason I don't do it often is cause it no joke takes an hour to do! Not to mention it kills me as all 3 rooms are carpet.

    Yes I do, usually twice a day.

    It doesn't take long, I'll usually do it while the kids are in the bath or while they are playing outside or playing inside it only takes 15mins.
