    I have to admit that I actually do enjoy assembling Ikea furniture. In my occupation my work is intangible so seeing an actual piece of furniture come together with my own hands is very satisfying.

    Bargain lunch: meatballs, and lingonberry sauce. Skip the mashed potatoes and gravy, substitute steamed veggies. Add a glass of lingonberry drink and it's pretty healthy & well under $5.00.

    Mad house! Staff not available on the floor or helpful. Definitely go in with a specific plan or end up browsing forever.

    Boy those carts are hard to maneuver! Use the "tugboat" method, one of you pushes from the back and the other steers from the front. Happy shopping

    The food is as affordable as it can possibly get, but it's really delicious! Swedish meatballs or ribs with fries are my favorite.

    Fun game to play at IKEA Emeryville: drive in back and count the SUVs & trucks parked in the 'compact only' section. #asshats

    You will NOT go wrong with delivery w/JW Logistics. Installers call before they arrive and follow up to make sure you're satisfied!

    Try spending all day living in one of the efficiency apartment demos. Napping gets a bit odd. So does peeing in the un-plumbed toilet.

    Zzz. Literally the best thing you can do is to get here as close to opening as possible. Especially if you're returning something or doing furniture pick-up.

    Check the item number on the tag with what you're buying! I bought cushions from a box marked $1.49. Got to checkout & was charged $3.99. When I showed them the box they said the # was different!

    Help, I'm still in here and can't find my way out. I'm near the display of European influenced housewares. Send rations and an extra cart.

    Try the marzipan princess cakes in the cafe. They're actually the best thing on earth.

    The Swedish meatballs at the cafe are a great reprieve from the madness that is ikea. A must try!

    If you're looking for the world-famous cinnamon buns, head downstairs toward check-out. The ones upstairs are not the genuine article.

    Skip the entrance where the escalator takes you to the showroom; enter through the exit, sneak through the self-checkout lanes and head straight to the As-Is section. Bargains!

    Park on the top of the parking structure. There is always good parking up there. People seem to be afraid of unshaded parking!

    Bring your seasickness meds. The showroom floor bounces. Petty strange for a concrete slab floor.

    Look up the bin # of what you want, on their website before you go then skip the showroom.

    Watch amateur couples break up and "successful" couples slowly realize that this is what it has finally come too. Also, there are tons of pregnant woman, so if that's your thing...

    Skip the pencil and paper. Snap a photo of the price tag with your phone. Thisty? Mix the lingonberry juice and Sierra Mist for a refreshing concoction!

    Don't worry about the floor shaking all the time; it's not an earthquake, and somehow it's actually normal.

    Most of the furniture is OK, but you find a gem here and there :). Also, too many choices make your head spin.

    Avoid the garage at all costs and if you know what you want, enter directly into the exit for the warehouse
