How often do you vacuum?

I feel like I'm constantly from some kind of crumbs.

not nearly enough.

We do have mostly hardwood floors with a couple rugs. I used to vacuum every week. Well, not so much any more. Let's just say, don't look too closely at my floors.

We have pretty much all rugs except the kitchen and bathroom. Usually we vacuum once a day.

We have very little carpet and mostly hard floors so I sweep a lot more than I vacuum. I sweep around 4 times per day and vacuum maybe once a week.

Once in a blue moon. We have hardwood throughout with a small area rug in my living room. Now sweeping? Several times a day.

We have carpet throughout right now, so 1-2 times a day in the main areas. In the bedrooms, playroom, dining room, and low traffic/no food areas, I do it a couple times a week.
I can't wait until we can pull most of this carpet out.

Wow... you guys seriously vacuum or sweep daily (or more)? Please tell me there's other ladies out there (besides you Dee!) who don't sweep or vacuum that much. About 3/4 of our house is carpet, the rest hardwood or tile. I usually vacuum 1x weekly. Sometimes twice. I sweep at least weekly, usually more (especially if E is extremely messy). I'm not saying I leave Cheerios on the ground, I obviously will pick that up, along with other large crumbs/dirt/hair/etc. But otherwise if I can't see it then I don't worry about it unless I'm doing the overall sweep. And if we're not using the space (spare bedroom, dining room, etc.), I'll only sweep/vacuum there maybe. monthly.

I'm with both of you ladies!!! I agree - don't stare too closely at my floors! I do sweep around Kysnlee's high chair after she eats usually because she's such a messy eater but otherwise about once a week or so.

I vaccum daily here. If she has not messed her dinner then she has walked something in from outside and she is ALWAYS bringing in the leaves too so I try and vaccum at least once a day now.

I try to vacuum daily. Lately it gets done about 3-4 times a week.
Sometimes I feel like my entire life is thinly coated in a film of dried milk and crushed goldfish/cereal lol.

I sweep about twice daily downstairs since it's hardwoods. But upstairs is carpet and that gets done weekly or every other week.

I vacuum once or twice a day. We have a dog and two cats. I hate their hair being everywhere.
