2. One of our favorite affordable robot vacuums Credit: iRobot
This Roomba is one of the best affordable robot vacuums, so we're obviously thrilled it's also on sale.
Vacuuming is my least favorite chore, but robot vacuums take most of the dirty work out for us by keeping things nice and tidy before deeper cleanings. The iRobot Roomba 690 is one of our favorite affordable robot vacuums and right now it’s 15% off at Home Depot. We liked this ‘bot because it has WiFi connectivity and remote control with a smartphone app and cleaning power, but it can be hard with some of its bumps into furniture. And iRobot is running a bunch of deals on their own site as well, if you want to see what else is available at a discount.
