Im a WOHM mom and every morning before work, is when I do my turbo tidy chores.

Currently, I have a broom and a lobby dustpan that I use but if there was a sweeper or cordless gadget that wasn't very loud that I could use to zip around in the morning - any ideas?

I have seen many on amazon but actually works on hardwood, doesnt have a chord, and isnt noisy to wake my little ones up.

What do you use?

I have a floor sweeper that is non electric and it does a pretty good job. I paid $20 for it and it picks up most stuff.

I have a shark cordless sweeper, it is like a motorized carpet sweeper
Keep it away from fringe on rugs and it is great. Works well on bare floors and really low pile rugs, easy to empty dirt cup

I cannot say it is quiet (depends on your definition) but it does have a high and low setting and the low is more quiet

They go for $50 give or take as they have a few models
I think you can pretty much find them at any store that carries vacuums

If you want really quiet -a dustmop or your broom can't really be beat

I use the swiffer sweeper vac. I cut up microfiber cloths to use instead of the swiffer things. It has a rechargeable battery. Last night it picked up those little dried bits of play dough that happen quite nicely, and I ran it after the kids were sleeping. It is much quieter than our big dyson. And it's $30.

The dog.

Seriously, we went on vacation for a week and were disgusted with how much food ends up on the floor.

CPST, LLL and Mom to a 9yr old animal lovin' girl, 6yr old wild man,  4 yr old cuddle bug and 1 year old "little brother."

Now we are growing the family with chickens, ducks, and dairy goats.

I have this one: http://www.amazon.com/Dirt-Devil-MBV.../dp/B0009ROCRG
It is rotten. Such a complete waste of money. The filter gets clogged constantly and causes it to lose suction. I use my regular broom more often than this.
If I was going to do it again I would get one like this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...A94P3Y142EFYTZ
