Oh, IKEA, Sometimes you Confound Me…

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.
