Check out IKEA – It’s An Affordable Place To Shop

by Pam on September 10, 2009

I had always heard many good things about IKEA, but had never had the opportunity to visit an IKEA store until this past weekend while visiting friends in a faraway city.  I have to say, IKEA exceeded my expectations.  For those of you who have never heard of IKEA, it is a Scandinavian store that has locations all over the world.

First of all, eating out at IKEA is super cheap.  You can buy breakfast for $1.00.  They also have a lunch/supper menu that is very reasonably priced.  You can feed your entire family for a fraction of the cost of eating at any other restaurant.

Secondly, they make it easy for customers to shop by providing childcare.  Now that is practical!

Thirdly, they provide fairly decent quality products at affordable prices.  And, to make it even better, a lot of their furniture can be purchased in stages rather than having to buy it all at once.  For example, you could buy a shelf first and use it for a while, before buying the extra accessories such as the cabinet doors and drawers that can go with it. Some people prefer to only buy the barebones of the set anyway so they don’t have to waste their money on extras that they don’t even want.

Fourthly, it’s all do-it-yourself.  IKEA keeps their prices low by creating products that you can put together yourself at home instead of having to pay hefty delivery fees.  Shopping at IKEA is extremely efficient and their system is very practical.

So, although I didn’t really expect IKEA to be all that I had heard from others, I was pleasantly surprised and I would wholeheartedly recommend it  to anyone wanting to furnish their home.  IKEA also has a wide selection of kitchen gadgets that would be hard to find anywhere else.  And, if you don’t feel like cooking one day, eating out IKEA will definitely fit within your budget.

Check it out sometime.  You won’t be disappointed.  If you’re in an area like me with no IKEA store nearby, you can also check out their website .
