So I’ve been looking into expanding my work/desk space for some time now. A simple 4ft desk/table can run $50 at the local mix n’ stuff shop, but for the same price, I could get this great table/bookshelf combo from Ikea that even matches my current desk.
Just $50! Yay!
Excellent, I thought. $25 in shipping makes for $75, which isn’t so bad for what is, basically, a whole new desk that will expand my workspace.
So I clickity clackitied and went to check out and then…
Shipping charges were $140.
No, no, seriously:
My order total, with tax was over $200.
From a store that’s half an hour away.
Ikea, sometimes you confound me.
