Ikea: terrible and amazing, brilliant but Machiavellian, a money saving place to get your furnishings without worrying about your kids and a guaranteed way to ruin your relationship in the process.

Only two products are available right now, but Ikea says it will add one new one ever week. “We understand that not everyone is a natural DIY-er at heart,” an Ikea spokeswoman said in a press release. But at least we can help you get the stuff home by yourself.
