IKEA Shopping! Ikea always gives me a headache though! + Little Vent
May 13, 2016 1:26am CST
As much as I enjoy IKEA's inspirational decor items, the store gives me a headache. I guess it's because of the layout and I always feel trapped without an exit with so many people surrounding me. I especially get a headache when I am passing by the lighting section. Boyfriend + I went to IKEA today to run some errands for my sister because we have a larger trunk. What I always do beforehand is print out a 'shopping list' of all the items she needed us to pick up so the aisle/bin number is listed right there for us! We zipped through the store quickly and grabbed the little knick nacks my sister asked us to grab (train set + figurines, watering cans) then on to the heavier stuff, a bookshelf + 8 draw dresser! A little vent: Afterwards we paid then I waited for my boyfriend to back up the car... I was standing by a parking space with my cart &... a freaking man with his U-HAUL pulled up to where I was standing. Out of all the spots you had to pull in where I was at, waiting for my car. There were tons of parking spots he could have went into and no one was even standing there to load. That was quite annoying as it's a 10 minute load and when we finished, he was still parked with no items to load or unload, gosh! Any of you get this kind of vibe when shopping at IKEA or any stores in general? Forever 21 is also another store I cannot physically shop at. I only buy from Forever 21 online because I love their Cami's only $1.80 - perfect for layering! Photos are the bookshelves I compared for my sister and we ended up with the actual Bookshelf + knick nacks I picked up for her.

@infatuatedbby So funny! I can already envision that. I've been through the same thing with my parents' car. We were parking in front of a Wal mart and of all places, a pick up truck parked right next to us. The parking lot was pretty much empty. The driver parked so near our car, the passenger door was hard to open. So annoying.
