*I was not asked to nor paid to write this post. IKEA is just so awesome I had to document ALL. THE. THINGS!
The #BestBossEver was going to the IKEA food store after work and offered to take us with her. Shani and I decided to make an evening of it and do the whole store.
I made myself a list and was promptly laughed at by everyone because apparently you NEVER stick to your list.
Which is true. I did not stick to my list. Although I only bought 3 extra things so that’s not so bad.
My list consisted of the following:
And from the food shop:
The additional things I picked up were:
Shani and I started upstairs going through all the various rooms and apartments. It also happens to be the big winter sale, so lots of things were marked down.
We took about an hour going through the whole upstairs and then parked our trolley (and Shani for a minute) while we went to the dining area so I could experience the quintessential IKEA meal. Swedish meatballs.
Oh man! Since it was relatively early for dinner, we landed up sharing a plate of meatballs, chips and green beans. We stopped just short of licking the plate clean. For ₪25 for a huge plate of food its almost worth just going there for dinner, never mind all the awesome things to buy.
Once dinner was over we headed downstairs to begin the real shopping.
It took us about an hour to go through the store, find the things on our lists, find things that were on the sale, put things we really didn’t need back on the shelf and check out.
We then popped into the food store and grabbed all the yummies.
I really enjoyed IKEA. The whole experience was amazing. I loved the room set ups, so many cool ideas to utilise a small space. And all the nifty gadgets. I could probably spend a fortune in there if I could.
I will definitely be going back since I saw a whole lot of things I would like to get.
