I believe that everyone should make a huge deal out of IKEA. Do you not?
Sure, if you live ten minutes away from one, it kind of becomes an average experience, and not that exciting. But imagine with me, if you will, living ten minutes from IKEA then picking up and moving 12 hours away where your closest IKEA is four hours away. Perhaps I'm overreacting a little bit, but I just went to IKEA last weekend for my first time in over a year, and I was pumped. Check out what I got for my new yellow and grey room for only $93.39!

And according to my Martha Stewart Living magazine, everyone needs to keep around some basic cupcake/cake supplies, so here's the cuties I bought!
So those were the non-food items that I bought. Of course I had to go downstairs and buy some lingonberry juiceboxes (I only have one left!) and a cinnamon roll, to complete my IKEA experience. It wasn't until later that I realized I could've used my IKEA family member card for free coffee too!
I would seriously love to hear some of your IKEA experiences too! Has anyone had a bad trip at IKEA? Or found some crazy awesome sales? Let me know!
