    Prices seem to me to be amazingly low. Is this what’s holding inflation down? Products are interesting.

      The other day I saw a couch that actually said ‘Made in the United States’! Boy it’s been such a long time since I’ve seen that line and I would’ve never expected that at Ikea!

      My respect for Ikea went up a notch!

      Love IKEA! The laundry hamper would be great for kids’ toy storage & come in bright colors for kids’ rooms. The clock can be customized with painted stripes/shapes or just add stickers for a kid’s room. I could really see dinosaur stickers on there. It’s half past stegosaurus!

      Those clear rectangular vases make decor easy! Just march a row of them down a table with whatever in them. Add stones, single flowers, moss, marbles, fruit, floating candles, regular candles, sand with shells, Christmas ornaments, etc. Fun, & easy to change with the season or holiday! Could even be used for wedding reception arrangements.

      Thanks, Moneycone, for these great finds! Gotta get to IKEA again.

    IKEA is one of my favorite destinations!! Amazing style and LOW PRICES. I’m going to check out the mat, mines getting moldy.

    My best friend is moving and I just went to IKEA with her last night. She picked up light bulbs, a rug, dish rack, and more and all under $6. I love IKEA for their affordable and modern furniture. I didn’t see the vase and would love that for my home. What department is it in? I feel like I’m in a maze whenever I visit this place!

      I saw this in their garden section. It definitely is a maze!

    I’ll have to check out the bath mat. Mine is falling apart due to washing (well, and cat pee. My cat won’t stop peeing on it!)

      Of all things, why is the bathmat getting so much attention! You are the third person to comment on it, LH! :-)

    I love the laundry basket with the handles. I will have to get a few of these to make it so much easier getting the laundry up and down the stairs here.

    Hi MoneyCone,

    I had a laundry basket that I had to lug up and down 3 flights of steps, but that one looked much more neat and light! I’ve never heard of those boiled potato things before, but I’m pretty adventurous when it comes to food. Thanks for the entertaining slide show.

    Thanks,
    Timothy

      Potato? That’s IKEA staple along with meatballs and some red syrup like thingy! Love the meatballs, boiled unpeeled potato, I skip!

      Heard IKEA’s serving potato mashed these days – guess I’m not the only one who’s complaining! :-)

    As a mother, I have to say that the BEST Ikea item I ever got was their Lattsam potty! Parents can pay a lot for potties, but IKEA’s is all one piece (easy to clean) and it’s only $5.

      Hey, that actually might be quite useful since I have a toddler who’s yet to get trained!

        It’s a great potty design – far more than you’d expect for the price and simplicity. I don’t think the people who design most potties (or toilets, for that matter!) ever have to actually clean them.

        Thanks for the tip CD! I was anyway planning on going there this weekend – I’ll check this out!

    Hmmm… that red laundry bag looks familiar…LOL. It’s the same one that we bought!

    Once in a while we stop and just browse at the Ikea store and then go eat at their restaurant as well. They have good meal deals just like Costco!

      Yep! Food first, furniture is an afterthought! ;)

    Very nice products! I am still waiting for IKEA arrival in my country, they say it might be here soon. Can’t wait!

    My wife and I had noticed the oddly shaped trash can at Ikea called the BOLMEN Trash Bin before. We didn’t pull the trigger on it because I am cheap and almost never buy anything. I still like how it looks though and will consider buying it in the future if my current trash can ever commits suicide.
