Genius Ikea Product l Simply Rose Photography

So number 84 on my 90 in 2010 list was to go to Ikea and not buy anything. How is it not possible to walk into a store and not buy anything? Even something small? I don’t know how they do it. But actually, I do know how they do it because of this nifty Business Week article here.

Every visit to the city is usually comprised of 3 certain things ~

  1. Eat sushi
  2. Go for a walk on the beach
  3. Go to Ikea

And this time I thought I had really done it. We had gotten to the Marketplace area (you know the basement area where they have all those great kitchen and other household items) and my hands were empty! I was getting really excited about this and being able to take another item off of my list….until we walked past this bin full of these cool little scrubby’s.

Uh oh.

My palms began to sweat. Those are really fun and cute and functional. It’s only $1.99. I need a new scrubby anyways. I could get a red one to match my kitchen.

And so it went. I ended up dropping one into my friend’s shopping bag while my husband wasn’t looking….oops.

But seriously, it’s cool right? I mean why didn’t someone think of this sooner? Stick a little suction cup on the end of the handle…’s always in the same place you left it last, will always drip dry into the sink if you stick it in the right spot and the bristles are actually a pretty good strength to clean those tougher items. But sadly, I cannot cross this off my list.

And, um, do those $1.00 ice cream cones count as an Ikea purchase? I’m still debating that one….
