Ikea is one of my most favorite places to shop for furniture and other accessories for the home and office. To me, it is the Fry’s Electronics for the world of home fixtures with its reasonable prices, gigantic selection of practical and unique products, lenient return policy, speedy checkout, and frequent sales. It is especially great for college students who can barely afford going to school, let alone furnish their dwellings. If ever you go to Ikea, do not forget to stop by the As-Is department. You will find extraordinary discounts on “damaged” items, most of which have only a few scratches in places you cannot even see.
