Black Friday: Don’t forget the home
Our favorite affordable Swedish design store, IKEA, is offering deals —
and goodwill — all weekend long.
Friday: Score the best-selling children’s Mala Easel for $9.99 (regular price: $14.99). Don’t forget the Mala Chalk ($1.99) to spark your little artists’ imaginations.
Saturday: The 365+ seven-piece stainless steel cookware set includes the essential pots and pans (and lids!) needed to whip up any holiday meal for just $19.99 (regular price: $39.99). Pair with the Direkt three-piece kitchen utensil ($3.99) for your own Iron Chef’s kitchen.
Sunday: The Expedit shelving unit — the perfect little cubby — gets a perfect little price tag: $19.99 (regular price: $39.99). Store important documents — like Christmas wish lists — in the Kassett Magazine Boxes ($9.99 for a two-pack), which fit perfectly into the Expedit shelves.
A frog for a good cause
With every purchase of a soft toy at IKEA through Dec. 24, the retailer will donate approximately $1.47 ($1 Euro) to UNICEF and Save the Children’s educational programs. IKEA’s adorable plushies (we love the Fabler Groda fairy frog) range from $1.49 up to $19.99 — but this weekend only, these soft toys will be on sale for 50 percent off.
