I love going to Ikea. It is a long drive from home. I enjoy looking their display model. A 500 sq foot place so tasteful arrange. So many furniture, kitchen stuff, and so much more. It is always a pleasure and a fun way to spend time. I don't have to buy, just browsing and trying to get some idea how to decorate. Don't forget to stop by the food court for some tasty meatballs. It might not be the highest quality material but I think it does the trick in practicality.
We bought our children's toy storage units about 8 years ago and still look sturdy. At the time we paid 80 dollars plus the bins which were $5. We also bought the bench in our entrance hall as well as all the bookcases that line my wall i have 6 of them. We get asked where all or some where purchased and reply Ikea. Yes its a drive , items come in small pieces but overall with the savings one can save quite a bit.
Very huge stuff with some really amazing ideas. I love the play center they have to drop you children off so you can shop. I wish all stores had this option! This makes shopping a lot easier. I love to come in here to pick up organizational stuff and see the different ideas on how to do things.
