My husband and I are making an Ikea run this afternoon to get some bookshelves etc to setup our school room. (Ahhhhhhhh!) I have seen the Expedit unit mentioned a lot. Any other recommendations for supplies, furniture, anything school related, from Ikea?
I like the Kallax shelves, also. They are great to use as book shelves, but they are also great in conjunction with the drawers, so you can ‘hide’ all the little materials like manipulatives and flash cards. I also just bought the green, pink, and black cardboard organizers at IKEA. They work great for work books and supplies.
Also, we were there this past weekend. They had a promotion going on that if you eat in their restaurant and spend at least $100, they will deduct your restaurant reciept from your bill: FREE MEAL! Yay!
Thank you all! We feel like we got a lot for our $$. Love IKEA. We got 2 Kallax shelves in different sizes. (Which btw are 15% off right now!) We got a couple Billy small bookcases for the kids’ books. And then a small computer desk and cheapy rolling chair. Can’t wait to set up our school room! We are going to start this weekend.
