The other evening, I wasn’t in the mood for cooking, so we decided to go out. And having two little pumpkins, we decided to take the fam bam to the wonderful Ikea.

I love Ikea. It’s very family friendly. There’s plenty of ideas for the decorating challenged (ehem-ehem, that’s me!), and they have awesome food for very affordable prices.

We had a meatball plate, a salmon salad and a drink for about $11. And it tasted so good.

As far as entertainment, DH and I had a great time window shopping. DS loved playing at the kid stops in between different sections. (Mind you we haven’t even introduced him to the actual Ikea play area) He still had a blast. We gave him one of those paper rulers, a checklist and a small pencil from one of the kiosks. He was making charts, pretending to measure different objects and then jotting stuff down on his chart. DD on the other hand was walking everywhere. She was very happy.

After some walking, we decided to get some dessert on the way out. They had the $1 frozen yogurt and $1 cinnamon roll. Then as it turns out, they were about to close in 20 minutes so they had a “closing sale” the cinnamon roll was “buy one get one free!” Woohoo!

They even have Primerib for $7.99. And I just noticed, their hotdogs are .50 cents each. You can’t lose with .50 cents. =)

That’s my frugal tip. Head on over to Ikea for an inexpensive fun family night out.
