I’m now one of the family at IKEA

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

I love IKEA, I don’t live near one but I don’t mind travelling the 45 min it takes to get there.  They have just about every piece of furniture you can imagine, I especially love their baskets.  I recently brought a new dining table from there which I love.


My latest visit there I was told about the IKEA family and joined up as soon as I got home.  Click HERE to join up it’s free and there are great benefits:

  • Ask any questions you like and have experts answer them
  • Read advice on anything you like

These are a few of my IKEA basket collection:

I love these containers they keep all my scrapbooking essentials organised.

On my wish list is the EXPEDIT 8 cube shelf in white to store all my scrapbook albums and supplies.   They don’t have white online so I am hoping they are still continuing with that colour.

Why did I not know about this! I love Ikea too, like you we have a 45 min drive & often will go for just an outing to look around & have a cheap meal! Although last time I thought Ikea had lost it's shine for me, I realized it wasn't Ikea it was my toddler, too little to go in the balls with her big sister caused alot of dramas! But I still love Ikea & I will be going to join the family as soon as I change baby's bott!

I love your expedit set-up!
I got the new catalogue in the mail on Monday and just joined the family.
Lucky me, I live just 10-15 minutes down the highway from Ikea 🙂 I will be popping in there today when I go shopping at Spotlight, but just for a browse and some lunch. Going back in a couple of weeks to shop for wardrobe organisers and baskets.

Okay I realise this is a really old post, but I just read through your entire blog from new to old – I’m addicted to you.

Anyway, I got so excited when I saw this IKEA Family thing – started filling out the registration form and then saw this –

“Apologies to our WA and SA cousins, IKEA FAMILY isn’t available in your IKEA stores.”

Boooo 🙁
