(SPOT.ph) As with many of the tasks that #adulting entails (paying bills, budgeting expenses, getting documents renewed, you get the gist), cleaning your home isn’t exactly enjoyable while you’re doing it. However, it always feels great once it’s over. Aside from the fact that you can finally rest once you’ve finished tidying up, a clean home brings about immediate peace of mind, eases anxiety, and gives one a feeling of relief and stability—we’d argue that the struggle is always worth it. But hey, that doesn’t mean you have to suffer every time you tidy up. One way to make the process less taxing is by investing in devices that make cleaning quick, easy, and in many cases, pretty satisfying.

Choosing the right cleaning tools will be different for everyone as the choice will depend on a lot of factors including the size of your home, how it’s furnished, and how often you clean it, so we suggest taking the time to figure out exactly what you need. To help you get started, here’s a fool-proof formula when it comes to choosing one of the most basic cleaning tools out there: A vacuum cleaner.

First, as with most things, you’ll want to avoid heavy or bulky vacuums that will be hard to maneuver—especially if you’re cleaning all by yourself.

Choose a vacuum best suited for the tasks that require the most work. Lastly, shop within your budget. You don’t need to spend an arm and a leg to find the perfect cleaning device for your home. In fact, you may just be surprised by how many options there are: Below, we list 10 handheld, easy-to-use, non-bulky vacuum cleaners with varying shapes, features, and price ranges, so you can find the one that best fits your needs.
