Not only did I finally get a crockpot this week, I finally went to IKEA. DH, DS and I braved the crowds and pushed down the aisles like sardines going down river in July. Lol. It was so packed!

I bought a rattan chair that I'm going to spray paint, juice glasses because we've almost broken all of ours, an ice cream scoop for .99, and a coated wire whisk that I can use in my non stick pots and pans. .... Oh and some glass vases that I saw in HGTV magazine.

We spent some time looking at the closet systems. If like to get those for our closets

Have you ever shopped IKEA? What do normally buy when you go shop there? Are the closet systems any good?

YaY on the crockpot!  You will love it!
Brave you were to go there, LOL
Sounds like you made out well too with all your goodies.

We don't have one here but I have been before elsewhere.
They are going to build one soon so maybe I will get there.

Glad you had so much fun too doing all that ;)

Glad you have one that close.

It seems like an easy place to spend a lot of money in one trip and not realize it until you check out.

What are you going to make in your crockpot?? I love mine.

I have not been to an IKEA. The closest one to me is over an hour away.

I think I'm going to make sesame chicken from a recipe in another group here on CM. I thought about making a beef dish but everything requires 2lb of chuck roast and we don't eat that much red meat.

Our Ikea is an hour away and it's located in a very congested area so it took us a while to get in and parked. It was probably like going to the mall this week- which I don't do because I hate crowds.
