How you DO NOT shop at Ikea….


My Husband and I have been planning a trip to Ikea for a week. I need a new desk for my office and our bedroom… Well, here is our conversation before we head out to Ikea:

  • George: “You want to take the Jetta, we can save some gas (Ikea is about 1 hour from us– we also have a Suburban.)
  • Josie “Oh ya, that is a good idea”

We had a pleasant drive to Ikea went all the way there–picked out everything and some other great trinkets. (Darn you Ikea!) As we head out of Ikea.. we look at the 8 boxes we have and both realized that we probably just made the most stupid mistake ever… (I’m sure I don’t need to tell you)


Long Story short– we were able to fit everything in the car. Truck WIDE open but we made it.

    lucky you didn’t get pulled over in that one hour drive home w/the trunk open!

  • Joan says:

    I love IKEA too. Looks like you had a fun shopping trip! 🙂

  • Julie says:

    Lol. We always say let’s go to ikea and then realize we have no way of getting anything home in our car except maybe a few toss pillows

  • Sarah says:

    I once drove home with an Ektorp chair tied on the roof of my Saturn! It was a deal in the ‘As Is’ section that I couldn’t refuse!

  • SChavez says:

    We were able to “fit” a sofa bed in our Explorer. My husband had some ropes in the car so it helped to keep the trunk “closed” It was a stressful drive home, all I could think was that sofa sliding out of the car and causing accidents. It was such a good deal, we could not pass on it 🙂
