The IKEA Challenge

Can we furnish a 3 bedroom house for 5 people entirely from IKEA for 1500 Euros or less?

What we have somewhere in our 8 massive bags -
  • A mixing bowl
  • 3 sharp knives
  • A muffin pan
  • A loaf pan
  • A mini whisk
  • A bodum
  • A towel each
  • 2 dish cloths
  • Baby blankets

What is in the house -
  • microwave
  • fridge
  • stove top

What we need from IKEA - everything else including oven, dishwasher (we may not end up getting this), kitchen table and chairs, pots and pans, tableware, beds, bed linen, couch, book shelves etc.

Can we do it? I sure hope so.

  1. Charity shops? Garage sales? Something equivalent to Kijiji? What about posting an ad in the local paper saying looking for: and then list what you need?

    Good luck! Again, why am I the only one posting here?
