Hjem, Møbler, Kjøkken, Hvitevarer, Sofa, Baderom Og Mye Mer

Today I finally found somewhere cheap to shop in Norway. And by cheap I don't mean relatively cheap, I mean ACTUALLY cheap, hurrah! It comes courtesy of our Scandinavian cousins the Swedes. It is of course… Ikea.

I went to the Ikea in Furuset, a suburb of Oslo, with a budget of 550kr (£62) intending to buy bedding for the new apartment. I only spent 329kr (£37) and with that I bought:

  • A really thin summer duvet
  • A bedsheet
  • 2 pillows
  • Duvet cover and pillowcase
  • 5 church candle set
  • 2 x 8 AA batteries
  • 12 clothes hangers
  • 2 photo frames

Most of the stuff was the dirt cheap stuff, I'll need another duvet come October for example. But to start me off while I still haven't been paid, £37 for all that was bloody great. I'd have paid at least £37 just for a duvet in most Norwegian high street stores. And to top it all off, I stepped outside the store and straight onto the free bus which took me and my bags non-stop to Oslo city centre in rush hour traffic in 20 minutes. You beauty!

I can't possibly blog without some form of photo, but I didn't take any. So here's a picture of Daisy and Andrew at Ikea Wednesbury. It was a fun trip.
