Bargain Shopping: Ikea! Do You?

*Note: Ikea in no way sponsors me, gives me any free merchandise, or even knows I exist.  But how I wish they did....

I always love a good bargain and Ikea usually can make me happy. Yesterday was no exception.

The store nearest to where I live is in Charlotte. I was coming through there yesterday afternoon on my way back to Greensboro, and I thought, "why not run in real quick? They might have something new."  It was such a joke to think I would run in quickly to see what new things they might have; I stayed for 3 hours!


I came home with some wonderful buys, however, that have made me downright giddy. So giddy, in fact, that I had to share them with you.

If you have never been to Ikea, you really can't comprehend what an experience it is. They very cleverly start you out winding through their showroom, where you see display-after-glorious-display of their goods in staged "rooms." Bedrooms, kitchens, dining rooms, laundry rooms, living rooms, family rooms, offices, etc....
