    Downstairs food after the checkout is the best. $1 hot dogs, pizza, cinnamon rolls & soft serve. Dont make the mistake and let the sucker you into those upstairs meatballs before you get to the end ;)

    Enter Ikea via the exit. You will spend less. The stores are designed to lead you thru their maze and get you to impulse buy. Go in the exit to the computer find your item and pull it .

    Best bedding (if you're like me looking for the European kind), fun kids' section, excellent storage solutions, quirky accessories, great picture frames, deals to be found every time.

    Don't come here on weekends. Also, make sure you order the right amount of furniture parts. You can't add more parts when you are at the cashier. They make you go back up and get another invoice.

    Say what you will, but the food at Ikea is tasty and fairly priced. Good Swedish meatballs.

    Weekends tend to be super busy. Go early to experience the store clean and organized rather than disheveled and packed full of people.

    Very friendly staff. Note that if you purchased furniture, you can ask for it to be loaded to your car for free.

    If you just want to go into the market place portion skip the maze and go the opposite direction thru the registers and you will get in and out quicker

    Got Target'd at IKEA? Where you started shopping for things you don't need but felt compelled to buy them? IKEA made returning easy. To start the process just get a number and wait for a minute or 30!

    Stuff all your meatballs in your mouth while in line and pay for just the side of mashed potatoes when you get to the cashier... Oh wait, this isn't the ghetto Carson Ikea?

    Don't forget the second box! Some furnishings come in separate boxes as 1 un. For example, 1(1) & 2(2). 1(1) has the barcode, 2(2) doesn't.
