Grumbling about the cost of bags.

Posted by springroz (My Page) on

When I bought my Miele Cat Dog vacuum 14 years ago, I thought the bags were a bit high. I seem to remember about $15 for 5.

Yesterday, I asked DS to bring some home. The shop gives me 20% off because I bought a sewing machine. The regular price is now $23.95. For 4!!!! I am SO glad I no longer have wall-to-wall carpet....I could NOT afford to vacuum!!!

Anybody else think that sounds HIGH?

I was seriously considering a Miele, but when I heard how much bags are, I'll stick with my Dyson...

RE: Grumbling about the cost of bags.

Yeah. It's incredible.

I've been using my dead Kenmore canister vacuum's bags in my Miele upright since I had a "company's coming and I ran out of bags" emergency and they work well enough. I don't think I'll get more Miele bags.

I still think that Kenmore was a better machine, except for the shorting out issue....

Here is an alternative at a more modest price
