A quick trip to IKEA

February 4, 2018


We’ve moved some children between classes at school, and need some more furniture to hold their stuff. So…. IKEA trip!! The plan was to leave early Saturday morning, but I had an unexpected meeting on Saturday morning. It all worked out.

Here is a sideways photo of some tubs on display. They ran out of this size and they wouldn’t sell the display models to me, dang it. I spent a fair amount of time there Saturday. Interesting fact: if you show up twenty minutes after they open on Sunday and don’t go to breakfast in the restaurant….


You are the only one in the store.


It was freaky. Freaky and fantastic!


On the way home we hit a snowstorm that freaked me out. I won’t tell that part because I come across as a crazy, cowardly lunatic. Let’s just say that Lloyd is a hero.

    So are you saying IKEA’s storage containers are cheaper than Walmart or Target or Home Depot???

    I’m so jealous of your alone IKEAing. I was there last Saturday and was most definitely NOT alone.

    Oh, how I do so miss IKEA. Maybe this summer when I come to Nebraska we can make a trip there.
