Start The Car Sale

I was crazy enough to visit Ikea this week, yes on school holidays, and in the midst of the January sales. That place does it to me everytime I walk in and before I know it 3 hours has gone by and I have a trolley full of items to try to fit into my car boot!

I paid just under $130 for all this stuff and everything was on sale except for the retro ssshh print and white pot plant holders. They don't call me the bargain queen for nothing :)

The white pot plant holders I had on my Ikea wish list from last time I went but they were sold out so I was happy they were in stock this time and happy to pay full price for them which was only $4.95, now I just need to decide what to use them for I've seen some really cool ideas

This blue pot plant holder was sold out last time as well so I was chuffed to see they were on sale for $7.95 this time. Hopefully it cheers up my little money plant which is looking a bit worse for wear at the moment.

The orange bin was reduced to $4.95 and retro ssshh art $19.95 are both going in the man cave which needs some splashes of orange to match the new light fitting

This black vase was a steal at $9.95 (was $50) but having no flowers to put in it, I turned it upside down and thought it would make a cool side table in the man cave. Perfect for a beer or magic eight ball to sit on! 

The guest room needed a bit of freshening up for summer with light coloured linen and this queen doona set with 4 pillowcases set me back a mere $12.95

This black ornate frame was my most expensive purchase at $35 (reduced from $45) and I have a bit of a project in mind for this one using my leftover wallpaper

Have you visited Ikea lately? Did you nab any bargains?

  1. Love it all!! I've been eyeing off the Shhh print but have no walls left to put it on. I might find one.

    I love the frame and nearly bought the mirror version of that.

    Your haul is very 'start the car' worthy:)

  2. Phew, you go girl! We got my sister that frame but in the mirror version for Christmas. I was actually thinking of them as mirrors for your bathroom! I try not to go to Ikea too often because I see too much cool stuff I could buy for the kids to use at school.

    I did get some bargains today at FCUK, two pairs of leggings and a tunic dress for $51.90. Full price would have been $149.85. Most happy about that!
