Everytime we move, we end up stopping at IKEA for some odds and ends we need at the new place. I didn't think that would happen this last time, but moving day ended up including a very big trip to the greatest store ever. While other, capable people were moving our things from the old house to the new apartment, my mom, mother-in-law, and myself went to IKEA and got two new dressers, an entertainment unit, and a paper towel holder.
I went yesterday to help my friend Carolyn pick up her new furniture for her sassy new place. Elliott was as good as gold, which made the trip super easy. I didn't intend on buying anything, but of course, we knew that wasn't going to happen. I picked up a 12-pack of outlet covers and a set of very cute plastic placemats, all for under $5. Woo!
In short, I love IKEA and I'm sad that my next home doesn't have one nearby. What will we do!?
