    Take pictures of the furniture and a close up of the product tag. Improves decision quality at the end.

    What can I say but the best human trap ever. These stores are specifically designed to frustrate those who want to be in and out and on to home installing their stuff.

    If you're looking for help, you have to wait for the guy planning an entire home redesign to finish.

    I would advise that come Ikea during a weekday AND also have what you want in mind already so you just pick it up at the lower level. Otherwise you WILL be stuck there 3 hrs or more.

    If you want to get a soda while you browse, get it on the first floor. Second floor dining does not have to-go cups.

    They have this dumb policy of not allowing carts in the parking lot, so don't go alone if you have a lot of stuff to bring to your car

    This IKEA is laid out in sensible rings instead of the incredibly confusing mazes some of them are set up in. Nice folks in the delivery department. Mmm lingonberry juice.

    Make sure to grab a map so you don't get lost. Look at the prices closely some are family members pricing. Don't forget to check the checkout area for other goodies.

    Try to go during the down times (like a week night) since waiting in line with a hundred pounds of furniture awkwardly pointing in every direction.

    If you don't eat meat and you shop at IKEA, you've been missing out on Swedish meatballs. But no longer. Your cries have been answered. Now, IKEA offers vegan meatballs called Grönsaksbullar. Read more

    I'll sooner jump in front of a moving car than shop here on a Saturday afternoon. Actually, if you shop here you are literally putting yourself at risk of being the victim of vehicular manslaughter.

    Write down the numbers for everything you want (it's easier than writing it on your phone if you grab one of their paper slips and golf pencils). Bags are 10 or 50¢ - not free.
