How to Zip in and out of Ikea Faster and without Buying Everything

Let’s face it, the Ikea in West Sacramento is a great place to buy new furniture for your Davis apartment on a budget. In fact, it’s a great place to buy a lot of things on a budget. So much so, that it seems impossible to get out the door without a dozen cool doo-dahs and knick-knacks you don’t really need. Here are some great tips from on how to go to Ikea without going bankrupt.

1. Pre-plan your trip. While you can’t purchase many items on the IKEA website, you can use it to plan your shopping trip before you even leave the house. In addition to “window shopping” on the site, you can also prep a shopping list and check inventory. You can also use KLIPPBOK, IKEA’s app that lets you play around with the store’s products.

2. Go in through the out door. The store planners at IKEA are certainly clever folks. The main entrance to the store leads you to the showroom floors, forcing you to see lots of product that might not be of interest to you. By entering through the exit you can walk straight to the warehouse or to an escalator/elevator that will take you the section you need.
