Guess where I just got back from, lol, I think the IKEA Coquitlam folks are getting tired of seeing my ass in there everyday this week. The past two days have been great in terms of finding lighting, I got some good deals and didn’t even really realize until i got home to do a reference check on some lights that I had picked up for use in my living room and my study/guest room

Yesterday I picked up Three (3) JÄRINGE worklamps in the clearance section for $8.00 CAD each, their original price?……$44 dollars :O there was one more in it’s original packaging when I had left and I was humming and hawing at the time deciding whether I wanted to buy it or not, I should have, when I went back this morning it was gone (of course) but I did find one LAMPAN table lamp in white in the clearance for $2.00 🙂 the original price is $5.99, I also got a pair of white NON spotlights for $8.00 in the clearance section, original price is $14.99. See below for pics 🙂

I just tried to find the JARINGE lamp on the website again but it seems to have been pulled/discontinued.

IKEA JARINGE LAMP: Original Price $44.00 CAD / Clearance $8.00 CAD


IKEA LAMPAN Table Lamp: Original Price $5.99 CAD / Clearance Price $2.00 CAD


IKEA NON Spotlights: Original Price $14.99 CAD / Clearance $8.00 CAD

IKEA Coquitlam is doing a rehaul of their displays in a big way, when i arrived at 9:45 this morning, I noticed they were re-doing alot of their living room displays and marking down the display items to be transported to the clearance section, so for you frugally sensible folks out there in need of some gently loved furniture you best to run down there with a quickness 🙂




This is a test post from flickr, a fancy photo sharing thing.

alright so….I’m on break for a few weeks, and one of my missions has been to beautify my place, as such I’ve been to both IKEAS in the GVRD (greater vancouver regional district for those who don’t know, yes….I’m canadian) the past three days Is it just me or does the IKEA Coquitlam seem to have a better clearance section that the IKEA Richmond, I found good deals at both but ehn…maybe it’s because I was at the IKEA Coquitlam one fresh from opening at like 10:30, I couldn’t get out to richmond until about 12:30, foolishly went through New Westminster and yadda yadda, anyway, I got so much stuff and the customer service rep was aweome this morning replacing two of my broken hinges from my computer hutch which totally made my morning, although….I did see another hutch with a smaller profile that I would love to have but alas….so poor, lol, I should probably post pics which I will do tommorow, speaking of which.

I will be picking up my piece de resistance tommorow after I run some errands in Vancouver, I will be heading to North Van to pick up a Detolf Cabinet set for only $30 bux, original price is $69 I believe, I cannot wait, I will be so stoked 🙂 This was originally a posting on Craigslist.

Tommorow, this…..


will be mine, i’ll probably set it up with the same arrangement too, rofl. That’s the beech effect shown, same colour I will hopefully be getting, ther’es also white and black available, I have yet to see this or any of it’s pieces in clearence, so $30 for the whole she-bang is a pretty good deal i think 🙂 I’m in desperate need of somewhere to display the sushi set, lol, for reals.
