The other day, we made a quick jaunt out to Ikea (our favorite spontaneous weekend activity), and came back with more than we needed – as usual! Ikea is like Target for me – it doesn’t matter if I only need one thing, somehow I always end up in the check out line with a full cart! (As AirBNB hosts we always have a need for something, plus MJ loves Swedish Fish..)
My absolute favorite section is the As-Is, where they put discounted merchandise that’s often perfectly good. I’ve gotten lucky so many times, with so many different kinds of products. We’ve found complete duvet sets that were previously on display, large picture frames for $4 because they changed the packaging and wanted to get rid of the old ones…. you get the picture. This time, we came away with a sisal rug that I’d been eyeing! I wanted to buy it anyway, but at 40% off how could I say no?
