Handheld vacuum

Black + Decker


This Black + Decker handheld, rechargeable vacuum really sucks—in a good way. I would know, since I have this model. Right now you can get it for 38 percent off. The 20-volt cordless vacuum has a slim nose, which makes it easier to reach narrow areas that trap dirt. It’s also super easy to clean, which is one of the most important hidden features of any good vac. Pop off the front nozzle and dump the dirt into the trash. $45.
