I used to HATE Ikea and vowed to never set foot in it again. Well, after taking 3 trips down there over the past 2-3 weeks, that has changed. Now I do not HATE it anymore, but just dislike it, but I still go there to get stuff as it fits better into my budget.

What I like: the cafe is very conveient to take a break and get lunch. And no matter how much you dislke cafeteria foods, be prepared to stop by there if you are shopping at Ikea. Trust. You will. Ikea is such a crowded place all the time. if you think you can just zoom in and out to get what you need within 15 minutes, well I got some news for you: that ain't gonna happen! If you bring your kids along then for sure you will need to stop by the cafeteria to get something to apeace your kids after the long walking around the store.

Another thing I like: the price and wide selection of furnitures you can choose from with most updated popular styles.

What I don't like: as mentioned above; the hassle of having to wait for literally everything, including checking out, waiting for help to load heavy stuff into your car, paying for delivery charge, eating at cafe, even going to the bathroom. O.K. I did not have to wait in line for the bathroom but you get the idea. Another thing is that you have to DIY for all the furnitures you get there. If you are a very handy person and assemble furniture often this may not be a big deal for you. But I had never assembled a piece of furniture before. It took me 4 hours to assemble once piece of furniture that probably take someone just 30 minutes. Seriously! Since time is money, sometimes I was not sure with all the time I spent shopping there including assembling and returning furniture, was it worth it with the few bucks I saved.

Also the selection fo kitchenware was just bare essential items. If you want something more unique or fancier you won't find there. But then again you get what you paid for. If you pay such a low price on things you shouldn't expect to get something extra ordenary anyway. Oh and the quality of stuff like plates, bowls, water and wines glasses are not very high. I had lost quite a few of those that I bought maybe three years ago. They just broke or crack after certain time of usage. Be prepared for that if you buy the lower priced items.

So to sum up, after assembing more furnitures than I would have wanted the past 3 weeks and becoming "almost" an expert at shopping Ikea, I don't HATE it anymore. I just dislike it. Like a lot of things in life, you just accept it as it is and put up with some sh** once in a while, grin and then move on with life. C'est la vie!

Oh by the way, if you do feel inclined to shop there, the best time to go there is NOT the weekend. Mark my words. NOT ON THE WEEKEND. Well unless you have an extra 2 hours at least to spare. The line will be LONG. So the best time to shop there: between 1 and 4 pm Monday through Friday. And yes, you would need to take time off from work to do that if you work 9-5. Good luck!

Now if you could excuse me as I need to go back to continue assembling some furniture from Ikea, and plan another trip to go back down there to return something that had bad parts straight out of the package. You gotta love this!!!
