10 Buys Under $10 You Won't Believe Are From IKEA


Original Graphic by Stephanie DeAngelis

Smart shoppers know that updating a home is about knowing when to splurge on a statement item or save on an accessory. And while we love nothing more than searching for a jaw-dropping investment piece (see exhibit A and exhibit B), there's something equally satisfying about finding a small but chic item that looks a little more luxe than it really is. We usually visit Swedish powerhouse IKEA for its home basics, which readily lend themselves to a long list of clever hacks, but the brand's latest décor needs no DIY mastery.

Looking to give your home a mini update with just $10? These guilt-free IKEA buys cost less than a good cocktail. Yes, seriously.
