It’s one of the most valuable giveaways that has ever popped up on this blog and I’m pretty psyched about it!

First, let’s fly through lunch to keep with tradition.

Lunch

Lunch today included leftover salmon from Wednesday night’s dinner that I repurposed into salmon salad.

I ate my salmon salad on in a whole wheat wrap, served alongside roasted Brussels sprouts and an orange.

Not shortly after, my stomach still wanted something else, so I also had a sliced apple 20 minutes later.

This week I have been apple-obsessed. I’m not sure what it is, but I’ve been eating two apples a day. Not a bad habit, but kind of weird!

Oreck Forever Series Gold Vacuum Giveaway

Moving on to the best part of this post!

When Ryan and I first moved to Ocala, we were in the market for a new vacuum. The first vacuum we bought a few years ago we got for less than $100. We figured all vacuums were created equal and we just wanted something that would suck up dirt and clean our apartment.

Well, that vacuum felt like it weighed 500 pounds and was a total pain in the butt. It barely sucked up carpet fuzz, let alone anything substantial.

When I was contacted by Oreck late this summer about their Forever Series Gold vacuum, I was so pumped because we needed a new vacuum but hadn’t done enough research to commit to buying one just yet.

When I started to look into the Forever Series Gold Vacuum, I got awfully excited. The company offered to send me one to try and I felt like a real adult. I mean I was getting excited about a vacuum for crying out loud.

There she is. What a beaut.

Honestly, it was Ryan who was the most excited. He swears he’s the only one who vacuums in our house (this may be true), so he put it together immediately when it arrived and called out to me, singing its praises.

“It’s so light!”

Really, it is.

The light weight of the vacuum was the first thing I noticed, followed shortly by the extra long cord and the tiny brushes at the base of the vacuum that *thank goodness* reach underneath our kitchen cabinets and get the crumbs other vacuums miss.

We’ve been using this vacuum for months now and are in love.

I have recommended it to friends and family in need of a quality vacuum and I’m so excited that one of you will get one!

    I hate vacuuming, but only because my vacuum is a dinosaur that weighs gosh knows how much! I’d definitely love to win an Oreck. Call me a nerd, but I’ve always thought the older gentleman in their ads seemed very charming and sweet.

    I do not know which feature would be my favorite – the lightness of the vacuum (9 lbs.) or the amazingly long cord (35 ft.). BTW, does anyone else think that “vacuum” is an insane-looking word?

    I agree that the headlights are an awesome feature! But I also love how lightweight it is. Only 9 pounds in awesome and you can’t beat the 35-ft power cord! Sounds like an amazing vacuum I would love to own!

    I learned that it uses a “dirty air system” (a fan breaks up the dirt into smaller particles) — sounds pretty efficient!

    What a great giveaway! I am on a hunt for new vacuum and I learned the oreck has a HEPA inner bag filter and 2 speed motor, LED headlights too.

  8. Michelle says

    I learned that the HEPA filter catches 99.97% of particles of pollen, dust, animal dander, mold, and smoke. I think my house would be a lot cleaner with this vacuum!

    Most impressive to me is the fact, that it only weights 9 lbs! Our current vacuum is soooo heavy! What a great giveaway!!!

    Oh I hope it’s not too late!!!

    I absolutely need this vaccum. I’m moving into a new apartment that has all carpet, and my current one is all hardwood floors…I’m going to need a vacuum asap!

    One thing I learned about this vaccum that I love is the tune-ups…this is really important to me because I’ve had issues in the past with a vacuum-that-shall-remain-nameless…it broke almost every time I used it, I swear!

    I love that it has LED headlights. How cool! Can vacuum in the dark and still get every last thing on the ground. We had an Oreck growing up..they really are the lightest thing ever!
