Shopping for new furniture, home appliances or even textiles for our homes can sometimes be daunting because there are just so many choices available. While trying to choose the best vacuum cleaner for example, we are forced to ask ourselves questions, like should I buy a stick vac or a canister model? Bagless or disposable bag? Confusing, we know!
But don't worry, we have you covered. Over the past year we've consulted experts and done our research to bring you informative buying guides for everything from pillows to desks. So before you hit the mall, make sure you click though our slideshow of the best buying guides from 2012.
