So you have completed your super-long journey through the IKEA mazes and you are ready to pay. Some customers get really shocked. The things that cost very little separately, cost a lot together. Admit it: it’s really painful to pay a crazy amount of money for things you don’t really need. But IKEA knows how to soothe the pain of saying goodbye to your money.
Right after the cash register, they sell cheap hot dogs and ice cream. This is probably the cheapest price you can find anywhere. IKEA doesn’t want you to be in a bad mood after shopping. So, you won’t feel guilty about buying a lot of junk because the last thing you bought was actually cheap.
