Last Saturday Stephen and I drove the couple of hours to go shopping at IKEA. We walked into the bustling store with a list, budget, and full bellies (because Lord knows hangry Jordan is the worst person to shop with). We love IKEA because they have so much stuff that is very reasonably priced. Heck, we even waited until we went to IKEA to get a salad spinner that Stephen has been wanting for almost a year because we knew it would be so much cheaper! It’s so great. It’s like a human version of PetSmart HAHA!
Since we wanted some things for the new house and of course we have a budget to stick to, we thought about it and researched it until we decided that IKEA would be the best place to go. Overall, we did a decent job of sticking to our list but we did push it to the limit with our budget. There were a few things we were going to get but we decided to hold off until May/June when there’s a little bit more wiggle room. We won’t be buying anything else for the house this month. That’s okay though! We have enough we need to do without buying anything more for now.
Anyway, here’s what we picked up!
Ektorp Chair – Ignore the fact that I need to iron ours. Whoops! I was just so excited to get it set up and sit down on it. HA!
Kullen Dresser – a little DIY update coming soon! We have been trying to find one at a thrift store and haven’t been able to find a good deal. $39 for this couldn’t be beat and I’m going to make some really easy changes to it that’ll make it more our style.
Lenda curtains – only got 2 because of the budget but we’ll be back for 2 more sets! We loved the way these looked compared to the others. It was between these and the Ritva and we ended up choosing these. We love the way they feel and look!
Elly dish towels – picked up 4+ of these to make pillows out of and just to use for dishtowels. These are such a steal and are so cute! We got them for $2.99 for a pack of 4!
Betydlig hardware – to hang the curtains with. If you have a big window you’ll need 3 each of these. For a big window, you’ll need 2, etc. So we picked up about 12. Ha!
