IKEA was great! Christmas Shopping Has Begun!

On saturday, I went to IKEA in stoughton, MA and it was very different than I expected. It had a european feel, which is to be expected from the Swedish Home Furnishing's Store given their roots. However, I was also impressed with the prices. They were relatively affordable, even for someone who doesn't have tons of money. Unfortunately, though there was not much that was really ideal for my home because the stuff is definitely not at the same level of quality; but I wish that I had known about it when I first graduated college.

It is a great place to go if you want to decorate stylishly and then redecorate every 5 or so years....
Or you are on a budget and cannot afford to pay lots of money for furniture....
Or you know that you are going to have to setup house in a very small apartment or rooms (since much of their furniture is scaled down).

On the plus side, I bought several items that were only a dollar and it was fun because I got some christmas shopping done since I know that people in my family will not have gone there yet. Best part? The gift was inexpensive.
