Parents Save Money and Sanity at Ikea!

It’s spring break for my son so I’ve been looking for fun cheap things to do. I’ve always loved Ikea and now I love it more. If your child is between 37″-54″ then you get a free hour of “me time” at Ikea. My son finally hit the 37″ mark and off he went to Small Land, the magical Ikea playroom which operates in a very socialist way: kids run free and workers watch and intervene only in emergencies. Not only do you get a free hour to yourself, but if you arrive before 10am you also get free breakfast. I’m heading there for the second time this week. I must say I am fond of many things Swedish…!
