The Ikea Trip

What do you buy most in ikea store?
things that you can hand carry home, like curry puff, files, wrapping paper, frames, boxes, lunch box, most, maybe table lamp.

The biggest ikea thing that i had at home (at the moment) is a billy bookcase which is 6 feet (height), next would be the ultra expensive cd holder. Can't really remember how much was it, but it's like 5 feet height. All can be carried home if you have a bigger than kancil vehicle. Other typical small items are book end, boxes, well, rubbish bin, oh and how could i forget, pillows, pillows and pillows.

Who actually went and use their delivery service before? Now am gonna tell you, i had. And there'll be more deliveries soon, i hope. I just got a Galant Series oval shaped office/dinner table. Under special promotion, it's 339 (normal 545). I had to opt for delivery as there's no way i can carry back a 180cm long table, and try to assemble it myself without actually spoiling it.

And, there's a one charge fee of RM69 PER ADDRESS/PER TIME for all Klang Valley addresses. Normally, delivery is within 3 days, and during weekdays, you could probably get it the same day if you pay early (before noon) and next day delivery if you only made your arrangement by evening.

Now, what's catchy here is, for assembly service, there's a 5% charge (on the product actual price) per item. So for the discounted table (RM339) i pay about RM16++ for assembly service. The ikea guy told it in a way that i thought he was joking, but judging from his expression i guess he's not. Yeah, so i paid for it.

Here's the tips, if you plan to renovate/redecorate your home, measure your home, visualise it, make a few trips to ikea store for more imagination, best is also use their shopping list so you can still refer to it later at home. For kitchen & living room planner, feel free to use their available desktops for measurement & furniture placement. Then buy all ONE SHOT, :P it still cost RM69 per delivery.

Redecorating your home can be real fun, if you know exactly what you want and how you want it. See more at the stores, search the internet, get good color combination, you know the drill.

Soon, i'll get their comfy couch, the room divider and new range of curtain rod. Ol skool is out. Now let's just hope my car budget can go to the house till end of the year. It'll be fun then!
