By Louis DeNicola, Cheapism.com Related: How to DIY spring clean with common household products An upright vacuum is a trusty cleaning tool that occupies many a closet. But some upright models weigh too much or prove too awkward to carry upstairs. There's also the task of vacuuming the stairs and the worry of scratching hardwood floors. That's where canister vacuums come in. They're versatile, easy to operate, and come with loads of attachments for reaching tricky crevices and high-up places. These four top picks from Cheapism.com boast favorable reviews and cost less than $100. Related: Best upright vacuum cleaners under $150 Choosing a vacuum means choosing between a bagless model and one that collects debris in a bag. Bagless canister vacuums store the dust and dirt they accumulate in a bin that must be emptied into the trash. The process can be a little messy if you're not careful, but on the bright side you don't need to bother buying and replacing bags. Bagged models have the advantage of keeping everything contained for easy disposal. Two of each type are featured here. Related: Best cheap energy-efficient light bulbs Another distinguishing factor: the type of filter the vacuum uses. All filters are designed to help capture dust and other small particulates that the vacuum sucks up, so they don't escape back into the air. But only high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters claim to capture 99.97 percent of particles that measure 0.3 microns or larger. Vacuums with HEPA filters, such as the Dirt Devil and Panasonic models Cheapism recommends, are the best options for consumers with allergies or asthma. Regardless, the filter should be replaced or cleaned periodically.

Mollie Cohen and Andrew Berman's wedding was held in a historic brick warehouse in Red Hook, Brooklyn, on a freshly laid carpet of grass, where they celebrated by holding a giant picnic. They asked architectural designer Oliver Freundlich to apply that same playful high brow/low brow spirit to their apartment, a Cobble Hill, Brooklyn, duplex in a converted mid-19th century church rectory that Freundlich describes as "a piece of developer crap set in a basement with major light challenges." Not surprisingly, architecture (and some alchemy) comes next. Freundlich—who the couple discovered on Remodelista—runs his own New York firm, Oliver Freundlich Design; we're longstanding fans and unveiled the glamorous eat-in kitchen he designed for actress Julianne Moore, his sister in law, in the Remodelista book. During his first meeting with Mollie and Andrew, Freundlich says he flashed a red Vola faucet he thought they'd like and the deal was sealed.

Treadway alleges that Maria Garcia and another family consultant, Patrick Murch, have refused to give the couple's Chihuahua and Pug mix back to them after Garcia stopped working for the couple on Jan. 21. In the suit filed on March 5, Treadway says he wants the couple's rescued street dog returned and asks for $25,000 in damages and court costs. According to court papers, the dog, Circus, lived with Garcia and Murch in 2013 while Morissette and Treadway had busy travel schedules, but that the arrangement was only temporary. In an email included in the suit, Garcia asks that she and Murch be given ownership of Circus because he and their other dogs had "become inseparable." Treadway says the two have breached their agreement to return the dog. More »Alanis Morissette Locked in a Battle for Return of Dog
