    My First Piece Of Furniture.

    Many of you may be familiar with my quest. It's been 7 weeks and a day since we split up. I've been renting a room from a co-worker and friend almost the whole time. When I arrived the room had a twin bed mattress on the floor and a hodge-podge of junk. I cleaned it up and...

    I Love Pint Size And Innovative Products

    I enjoy going to Ikea especially since it is a bit of a drive for me. When I arrive, I dont feel like I am in a typical furniture store. I love to browse their products. Sales people dont mind if I sit on a couch or open up drawers or doors to make sure it is the item I want. The...

    IKEA Rocks

    I love going to IKEA - I could get lost in there all day!  There's so much stuff there, and most of it is reasonably priced.  I have only bought some little things there so far, but once I have my own place, I have a feeling that I'll probably get quite a few more items...

    Sleek and Cheap

    I love my IKEA furniture.  Even though it is cheap, at least it doesn't fall apart like Walmart stuff.  I love my bookshelf, dresser, desk, bed, and misc stuff I got there.  Mmhmm!

    I love this store so damn much. Everything there is so funky, smart and modern. I have no idea where they come up with half the stuff that is there. When it came to buying things for my new apartment I went nuts. I have so much Ikea stuff now it's scary

    Just Went There Today

    It is a very fun place. Always something new to see. Always something new to be tempted into buying. And the lingonberry juice is delicious! I went there today and found a few things for myself, the wife, and a bunch of stuff for presents for the niece and nephews.

    Cheap and Cheerful

    It's a great place if you're looking for cheap stuff, which I'm always doing cos I'm not exactly swimming in money =P The stuff is quite decent. Not top of the range, but it's still good stuff.
