Crayons, small toy pieces, scraps of note paper (of course with phone numbers on it), you name it, gets sucked up and tossed out.
My only exception is money. I will bend over for that. I then find myself saying out loud, "Gee, thanks for the tip." Yes, I even pick up pennies. Pennies do ad up and I value all money, even pennies.
I love the bagless vacuums now so I can see what I'm throwing out and my son has learned to pick up his toys with only one request from me when I pull out the vacuum. He knows if he wants to keep them, he better get them off the floor.
I need a bigger hose attachment now. One that will suck up shoes, books and car parts left lying around.
This is just another sign I have become my mother.
