Ikea "Must Have's"/Quick Pick Up's

i have them under all my house plants!! :slight_smile:


I get all of my throw pillows at IKEA. It’s a good value, good quality, and a good price. Other favorites:

  • paper dinner napkins - way better than any I can get at the grocery store
  • dinner plates & bowls
  • various types of storage boxes
  • curtains & curtain rods

Speaking of meatballs, I also buy packets of dry cream sauce at IKEA:

I doctor the sauce with chanterelle mushrooms and use with this meatballs recipe.

These are very good for rolling pastry on…or cutting cookies.

Oh forgot, we always stock up on boxes of Jublar (sp?) candles as well. Very cheap, no drip.

Tea candles. And the fold up storage boxes for the closet. Have great little boxes for organizing dresser drawers. Skubb boxes.


Trip complete! Picked up some dining chairs - purpose of the trip - that will be fine for now, and that was their purpose.

Prices did seem a little higher but still “buys” to be had. Some of the extras I picked up:
The inexpensive kitchen towels
Extra vegetable peeler for my desk at work to peel my apples. :slight_smile:
Some pretty small beverage glass
The cork hotpads
A couple of picture frames
A few stocking stuffers
A jar of lingonberry - actually seemed to be less food choices unless I wasn’t looking in the right spot - didn’t see @BunsenBurner dried creme sauce.

A few other odds and ends I can’t remember. :slight_smile:
Was totally NOT busy and that was a pleasure.

Thanks for the suggestions!


I loved the roman blinds that D in Seattle had in her home and decided to replace my old style drapes in CO with those. We are not anywhere near an Ikea. But, I discovered when buying online that they will ship some items including those blinds. They look great! Added some layers to two windows for extra coverage.
