The first IKEA store in Florida is set to open in less than a week in Sunrise, about 20 minutes from my home. Just typing that gives me chills which means I must work extra hard to control myself. I have been an IKEA fan since Queer Eye for the Straight Guy aired about four years ago. Those guys did some wonderful designs using the furniture and accessories from that store.
My first purchase will be storage solutions for my home. I'll likely NOT go the store's grand opening on Wednesday but I will check it out over the weekend. I know that shopping can be a serious threat to my financial well-being so my first visit to the store will be limited to checking out their offerings and taking measurements of the pieces in which I'm interested. I intend to make my visit to IKEA very methodical and unemotional. Please pray for me.
