Ikea Run


It’s been almost two years since I’ve gone to Ikea, and for good reason.  It is not the place to go when you’re on a budget.  The meandering aisles and the oft single digit prices lend to spending with thoughtless and reckless abandon.  I miss you, old friend.

I went in, armed with a list and a specific budget.  Both went to rot with each fanciful new item.  Do I really need more plastic prep bowls?  Nested tin containers?  Paper napkins printed with Indian-style animals?  Kind of, sort of, not really.  I wanted the Grilla grill pan, but I forgot to look for it, such is the distracting power of Ikea.  I did start to build my arsenal of hermetic jars.  At $2.99 each, I can afford to fill my pantry shelves over time.  Since I know that my willpower is nil at Ikea, I should keep my trips to a minimum, and purposeful.  We shall meet again, in a few more months…
