I'm going to get started early on this party, as it was not well thought out or promoted. You can link up with anything IKEA, but I'm particularly looking for your favorite IKEA items so I can look for them when I'm there in a couple weeks.
Probably our most well-used item is our Expedit bookshelf, which we've had for six years and four houses. In the beginning it was used for books and some decor in our living room, but the bottom two levels held toys.
Now it is being used in the playroom as an ever-evolving critter condo/mall. You can see labels on many of the cubicles; right now they are "stores". The one on the bottom left is called Old But Thrifty--Classy 'n Sassy Thrift Store (where in the world did they get that idea?).
As for usefulness, these bag clips are very handy (Bevara, 30 for $2.99)
I've had these Svepa drinking glasses since my very first trip to IKEA; I always got a new set every time we went to replace the broken ones. I like how they stack. Unfortunately, they don't make them anymore, and I'm down to my last 12 oz. I tried a different kind last time (Pokal, .59/ea) and although it's heavy and sturdy for the price, I don't like them as well. I'm going to look for another stacking kind this time (maybe Vanlig).
No pictures, but I can't forget my down pillows and comforter, which I totally love. We have lots more, but I'll quit here.
As I said, anything IKEA is fair game, but I'd love to know about your favorites. Please link back to this post. Open until midnight Thursday.
