Always some dirt you just can't sweep up...
  [vote for,

In today's society, there are a million ways to clean your kitchen floor, and the broom is somewhat outdated. But for those of us you cannot afford these high-tech gadgets to rid out tile floors of dirt, crumbs, and such, there are still five-dollar tools out there called brooms. Unfortunately, there is always a line of crumbs that you just can't sweep onto the dustpan. (I know there are those dust-magnet cloths, but they don't work for bits of food, unfortunately). So I thought, why not make a dust pan with a small vacuum-cleaner slot on the bottom that leads directly up into the dustpan. The suction would of course have to be miniscule, and of course there would have to be a lid on the dustpan, but think of how much time (and frustration) would be saved...
