IKEA stores are like Disneyland for adults: people go there not just to buy furniture, but to have fun and maybe even a little adventure. In this magic place, logical thinking disappears, and people start to fill their shopping carts with completely unnecessary things. As it turns out, the Swedish giant has a few tricks up its sleeve that they use to reprogram the thinking of their customers.

GIGGAG has done a little bit of research and learned about the techniques that this store uses to manipulate its customers. We wrote this article so that you don’t get manipulated the next time you visit an IKEA store.

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.
