A New "Toy" From Work, Holiday Gift

In the almost six years I've worked at Yafiz, part of the Rami Levy discount supermarket chain, in Sha'ar Binyamin, I've rarely liked or use or kept the holiday gifts they give twice a year, before Rosh Hashana and Passover. Sometimes I beg my kids to take them, and last Passover I donated it, a good quality cooking pan, to a charity for young couples who don't have the money to buy what they need.

But this time, for Rosh Hashanah, they gave something I didn't have and should have, a simple vacuum cleaner. It's a Sauter Power Stick, but strangely I can't find any mention of it on the internet. I had been counting on that for English instructions...

Many years ago, I had a vacuum cleaner; I don't remember who brought it from America. It was either my mother or mother-in-law. They probably hoped it would make me a better housekeeper. I am one of the world's worst. OK I wouldn't win first prize, just honorable mention... I hardly used it, since I was always afraid that it would gobble up something of value. It's one of those things that ended up in the attic and died a miserable death, like being locked in a tomb.

My husband photographed me unpacking and unwrapping it.




After taking a quick look at the parts, I easily managed to put them together without trying to figure out the instructions, which seemed a lot more difficult.

And then I did some vacuuming...




I'm glad to see that instead of the old bags, this has a plastic container that gets emptied periodically. If anyone knows more about this "toy," please let me know in the comments, thanks.

No instructions. But I have a magnet on my fridge which says"dull women have immaculate homes" Shabbat Shalom!
