Where To Find The Best New Up-and-Coming Household Brands

This post is sponsored by eBay and ShopStyle.

I’m taking a break from fashion to tell you about my new MOOSOO Vacuum that I found on eBay.

It’s hard to imagine, but this time last year we were moving David into his new college apartment, Caroline was preparing for another year of online learning (and looking forward to doing so in a quiet, empty house), and Becca was gearing up for a hectic fall schedule filled with band practices and football games.

Things definitely look different now.

All five of us are schooling or working from home for the foreseeable future, and I don’t even remember what it’s like to have the house to myself. I’m also noticing how quickly the dishes accumulate in the sink and our main living areas become cluttered.

I’ve decided it’s time to put some new routines in place in order to keep the house in some semblance of order, and to maintain my sanity. If momma ain’t happy…

One thing I realized right away is that we needed another vacuum cleaner — ideally something lightweight and rechargeable, perfect for smaller tasks and daily upkeep. I’m tired of schlepping out our big upright vacuum when I just need to sweep up a small mess.

So when eBay reached out and asked to partner with them on a post highlighting their extensive range of products for the home and garden, I knew exactly what I was going to look for.

Along with great deals on brands you know and love, eBay has a fantastic selection of new up-and-coming brands, including MOOSOO Vacuums.

While MOOSOO is new to the US, it’s well-known in Europe and Asia as a trusted brand for cordless vacuums at affordable prices, and I found exactly what I was looking for.

I ended up purchasing the MOOSOO XL-618 4 in 1 Cordless Vacuum for $89.99, and I couldn’t be happier.

As I mentioned above, I wanted something lightweight and easily manageable. I already a have a full-size vacuum we use for our weekly house cleanings and a small canister vacuum for odd jobs, but both are heavy and cumbersome and I’m always fighting with the electrical cord.

The MOOSOO XL-618 weighs less than 4 pounds and comes with several attachments, so you can use it on hard floors, carpet, stairs, windowsills, sofas, curtains, and more.

And best of all, it’s cordless and gives you 20-35 minutes of cordless running time once fully charged! It also has a high-efficiency cyclone and HEPA filtration system to remove dust particulates from the air, which is important since I’m allergic to dust and pet dander.

As soon as my new vacuum arrived, I took it for a test drive. First, I tried it on the hardwood floors in my kitchen, where I can always find dust or crumbs. It took care of that, no problem.

Then I tried it on the family room rug.

It ran smoothly and maneuvered easily, and it picked up everything from dog hair to the remnants of last night’s potato chips… one of my guilty pleasures!

Next, I took off the motorized floor brush and aluminum tube and replaced that with the 2 in 1 dusting brush and tackled my sofa. This project was long overdue, and it was the ultimate test because my navy upholstery has a way of picking up everything.

It’s always covered in lint and dog hair, and I admit, I let far too much time go by between cleanings — mainly because I hate fighting with my canister vacuum and its heavy cord. But the MOOSOO made this task a piece of cake.

Because it’s so small, I was afraid it wouldn’t be powerful enough to deal with carpets and furniture, but I didn’t need to worry about that.

I was just intending to try it out and take a few pictures for this post, but I ended up vacuuming under every cushion, and turning them all over and rotating them.

It did an awesome job, so the next area I’m going to tackle is my car!

When I was finished, I returned it to its charging station to recharge. This vacuum actually comes with a wall mount too, but we haven’t set that up yet. We’re still trying to decide the best place to keep it, but I think it should have a home in our mudroom.

If you’re in the market for a new vacuum cleaner, MOOSOO has quite a few options available, and making this purchase on eBay was super easy.

I was able to add to cart and check out in a matter of seconds — no bidding necessary! It arrived within the week, packaged securely and in pristine condition, ready to charge up and go.

If you don’t shop on eBay regularly, you may not know that not all of their inventory is pre-owned, and you don’t always have to bid in auction format.

In fact, did you know that 80% of all merchandise sold on eBay is new and available with the “Buy It Now” option? Also, many items ship for free. It’s a great way to find new and top brand items for the home and garden.

I always check the boxes in the sidebar so my searches only show products in New condition with the Buy It Now option. You can also check off Free Shipping and Free Returns or Returns Accepted, to make sure you don’t end up exceeding your budget.

What house projects are you planning to tackle this fall? Or are you like me, and just trying to keep up with the daily household tasks?

Either way, if you haven’t checked out eBay in a while, it’s definitely worth your time to take a look.

  1. Glad your feeling better…sunshine always helps!
    I can’t believe looks like my dyson  and a great price!

  2. Happy Monday!  I am so happy you tried this vacuum.  I have been looking for one to keep upstairs and to use on the stairs.  Question, though….does this stand up by itself?  Is it top heavy?  I know it can be mounted but if you have to stop vacuuming, do you have to lay it down?  Thanks!

  3. I have this vacuum, bought it a few months ago, and I love it! Got rid of my old, heavy vacuum, I found this one does everything I need! Game changer.

  4. I love my little stick vacumn and rarely pull out the cord for the central vac. I had never heard of this brand. It seems similar to the Dyson vac without the big sticker price. Will you do another review in six months and let us know how the MOOSOO has performed? 

  5. Thanks Jo-Lynn for the MooSoo Vacuum tip, I am in need of a new one, so I just bought one from your post, review and honest opinion of the product, I am getting it 9/14. Thanks again for your influence on great products and cloths! I love your blog, very personal and true. Blessings to you and your family on our new “norm” of back to school and work.

  6. I am using your link to purchase this vacuum. I totally agree – I just don’t want to drag out the heavy vacuum every time (with 2 dogs!) I have an upstairs and downstairs vacuum, but still it can be pain. And I always have to move the plug to get every place I need to vacuum. Thanks!

  7. We are also a multi-vacuum family! I really like your living room rug. Can you share the source, please? Just the colors I need. 

  8. I love cordless. We have a Dyson but MooSoo lots cheaper. I’ll remember for next time. Look forward to you and Cyndi’s fall posts. Also ready for fall.

  9. My daughter received this Moosoo vacuum as a wedding gift.  It’s awesome!  I have a cordless Dyson, but I like her Moosoo better!  The “on” button just clicks in place as opposed to the Dyson that you have to hold the “on” button down the whole time you vacuum.  And the Moosoo is much cheaper!

    1. You do? How odd! That would be annoying. This one has two speeds, and you just press the button and release each time you want to change it. I just have to remind myself to hold it by the handle behind the button, or I will accidentally press the button while it’s running and turn it off, lol.

  10. Thank you so much for all of your hard work you put into your daily posts, I look forward to it everyday!

    Have you thought of maybe doing a decorating post? Your living room is just perfect!

  11. My husband got me the Dyson Cordless Vac for my bday in July and I love it but it’s an expensive purchase. We have a cat and dog and I have arthritis in my hand so it’s been nice to use it. Also my 23 yr old daughter loves it and asked for one when she moves out but this would be a great alternative. Thank you so much for sharing. 

  12. Thanks, Jo-Lynne! I just used your link to buy the vacuum. With two dogs and two cats, I try to vacuum frequently in my never-ending attempt to keep things under control. I hate always having to lug out and haul around my big vacuum, so im thinking this smaller cordless vacuum will make life a little easier.

  13. Ooh, I want one of those vacuums!  I have never shopped eBay, out of fear.  Hopefully, after I consult with my sweet husband, he’ll agree to me getting that vacuum.

  14. Great post!! Have been contemplating a Dyson cordless vacuum but love the price of this one. I live in Europe so should be easy to find. 
    Thanks for sharing!!

  15. Two years ago on Black Friday I bought a dyson vaccum the same style and I’m so happy. So much easier to vaccum as before I had a big upright corded Kirby. Boy….. that dated me. Lol. Anyway glad you found a great one so cheap. Dyson cost a lot even on sale. You look so cute in the photos. Now wishing I bought those mules. 

  16. Hi,
    Did you say there was also a post on ten ways to wear cargo pants today? Or is that tomorrow?
    Thanks!

  17. Just bought the MooSoo K17 vacuum  last week on Amazon. We just moved to a new house with all wood floors this vacuum is the best. Love the cordless feature most of all.

  18. Hi JoLynne!  I asked this question before but didn’t save your reply 🙁  Now I’m ready to buy curtains and am wondering if you’d be so kind to send me a link to your bedroom curtains? Sorry for asking again. Thanks! Cindy

  19. Hi Jolynn I’m just wondering if you are still liking this vacuum? We just moved to a house that has 3 stories and lots of hard surface flooring.

    1. Yes, I do. Very much! It is not my main vacuum, although the Moosoo brand does carry some that are bigger and more powerful. This one is great for small areas, quick cleanups, and for cars and upholstery.
