2. Budget and bring your list of items you want to get.
3. Go in through the market place/ warehouse area first! This will help you go straight to the sale/As-Is section. Ikea doesn't really want you to do this because they want you to meander through for a long time in their show rooms and go through the whole market place and then go to the sale section at the end. However, I found going the opposite way they want you to go, is faster.
After you've gone through the warehouse you end up in the plant section- which is a great place to be since we all could use a bit of green in our homes.
I was really looking for a fiddle-fig tree (like this one), but alas they were plum out. Boo hoo- next time.

Of course, plate racks are perfect for books too in children's rooms.
However, I did get a few of their $3 spice racks that I will use for one of my daughter's rooms like this one.
Well, there you have it- another trip to IKEA done quickly. Do you have any IKEA shopping tips?
