Deck The Halls + A Giveaway

This post is sponsored by BLACK+DECKER but all opinions are my own.

Keep your home clean while you deck the halls for Christmas! 


I’ve been busy decking the halls for a Christmas home tour I will be sharing with you tomorrow. It’s really starting to look like Christmas in here and I love it! There’s been lots of present wrapping, ornament placing and garland hanging. I love the smell and look of fresh garland in my home but I tell ya, it can get pretty messy. Those little garland needles can shed everywhere. And they are not so easy to clean up. Well, that is if you don’t have a BLACK+DECKER 2-in-1 Stick vacuum


I just got mine yesterday and this baby has been working non-stop. 

And when I said needles can be everywhere… I mean everywhere, including the the tabletop. But no worries! I just popped out the hand vac and was good to go.



The BLACK+DECKER 2-in-1 Stick Vacuum has a ton of great features like:

  • Self-standing 2-IN-1 hand/stick design provides two vacuums in ONE for cleaning on and above your floors.
  • BatterySense™ displays remaining battery charge.
  • FilterSense™ alerts you when your washable filter needs to be changed.
  • AutoSense™ automatically adjusts suction from bare floors to high pile carpet.
  • Choose low speed for sensitive applications such as vacuuming curtains + linens, or choose POWERBOOST for extra suction with a push of a button.
  • Lithium technology provides strong suction.
  • It actually makes vacuuming fun and easy!

You can even check out the video I made you to show how great this vacuum works: 

I plan on keeping this vacuum on the main floor of my house tucked away in my laundry room. When I need it, it’s only a few steps away. And I have two boys so you know I am always going to NEED it. 😉

  1. We need this! I’ve been letting our baby feel the wreath, tree, wrapping paper, etc…. this cordless vacuum would make clean up so much easier! I love the eggplant color, too. Plus, it’s so techy I could trick my husband into doing the vacuuming for me!

  2. Oh I would love this. I have the hand held vac that I use all the time, but this would be amazing for our new home since it has tile floors and stairs. How fabulous to be able to do the stairs without a huge vacuum. I hope I win.

  3. I have been unable to vacuum since I went through an illness that keeps me from lifting anything too heavy. If I won this, I would be able to take this duty back from husband, who has so many other things he has to do. Would be a blessing. Thank you.

  4. I can use the AUTOSENSE to zoom through my cleaning and then get to the decorating!

  5. This is perfect for us! We downsized to a smaller home, so a smaller vacuum would be great in this space. With cats and grand-dogs, and grand kids in and out, this would be perfect for keeping up with the traffic.

  6. i’d deck the halls with a clean house its a mess around this time of year always cleaning it seems im doing

  7. This would be perfect for helping me get my house cleaned before all the family arrives for Christmas! Thank you for a great giveaway!

  8. I love that it will automatically go from hard floors to carpet. The less I have to think about it, especially this time of year! the better.

  9. This would be great to keep the floors looking their best during the holidays, and simple enough to use with all those autosense features!

  10. I was in a bad accident and now have limited function and mobility. This cleaning tool would be perfect for me. First, it stands upright, so I would not have to lean over to pick up the handle. It is battery powered so I would not have a cord to trip and fall over. Last but not least, it is light enough to use with just one arm. This would allow me to use a cane/walker for stability while using the tool. I love that it cleans floors to drapes and certainly would help me get ready for Christmas and clean up after the halls had been decked.

  11. This vacuum is wonderful. Right now I’m using a shop vac to vacuum my bare floors and need something like this. I would use it to clean my drapes, and living room furniture, as well as my floor, to make my house more inviting to guests during the holidays.

  12. Eggplant! I love the color of this vacuum. The fact that it is cordless, another great feature. I could not only use this vacuum to tidy up my home, but my car, and my husband’s truck! The fact that it is lightweight, a bonus for sure. Thanks for this opportunity to win such a great product.

  13. I would loved this for my carpeted stairs which are currently being showered with pine needles from the live garland I bought to decorate the stairway. Pretty, smells great, but man the needles! Having something lightweight to do a quick clean up before guests arrive would be fantastic, especially last minute guests!

  14. The perfect giveaway for all the homemakers and mama’s in your life. Thanks for linking up with us at Family Joy Blog Link Up Party this week.

  15. I do the decorating. My cat does the de-decorating. Pre-Christmas, too. Plays with the swags I made and won’t stay out of the tree. Even when I don’t see him doing it, I know he has… because of the needles. I have to keep after all the hair he sheds, too (he has long hair that gets everywhere). That Black and Decker 2-in-1 looks like the perfect tool that’s easy to move around. Now if I could only train the cat to run it. Have pity on me and put my name in for a chance at the giveaway. Thanks, and wishes for a Merry Christmas and Clean House for everyone!

  16. Oh my goodness this would save me so much time. We are staying in the living room at my grandmother’s and I literally have to sweep her carpet with a broom every day to roll out our bed and this vacuum would just make that chore so much easier!!

  17. I want this one. I like that I can use the hand vac to clean my couch and chairs. This is a must have. Thank you for sharing.

  18. I could use this because I have COPD and can’t lug a big heavy vac. I could use it to clean up all the glitter from my Christmas crafts. Also ,I have a cat who leaves cat hair everywhere.

  19. This vacuum looks like such a smart use of space, it is so compact and also super versatile cleaning the house from the floors up! And I have to say, I think it would make cleaning a lot more fun too!

  20. I would love to use this vac to clean my stairs for the holidays. My big, heavy vacuum doesn’t navigate the stairs well and is a huge trip hazard!

  21. This vacuum would help me deck the halls at my Dad’s house, since I wouldn’t have to lug my vacuum there every week to clean for him.
