Today we went to one of our favourite stores – IKEA. I’m not sure there are too many people who don’t like shopping there. From a home furnishings perspective they have just about everything you could want.

We’ve been shopping at IKEA for as long as I can remember. I even recall going there as a young boy. In the early days when we started purchasing things from there and assembling them, they were not the greatest quality. Don’t get me wrong, it was not junk, but it also was not top of the line.

Fast forward to today and over the years and they have certainly improved the quality of their products. I put together 4 differnt pieces of furniture this afternoon and they all felt sturdy and looked great. Sure they are not $1000 pieces, but for the price they are great.

So next time you are looking for something simple and don’t really need to spend the extra dollars – do yourself a favour and head over to IKEA – you won’t regret it.
