IKEA cuts at least 20% off and as much as 40% off a selection of its furniture, decor, bedding, kitchen items, and lighting. (Some items are only available to be purchased in-store and are marked as such on the product page.) Opt for in-store pickup to avoid shipping costs, which start at $10. A couple of best bets:
IKEA Hemnes Bench for $59.99 ($20 under last year's price)
IKEA Stenstorp Kitchen Cart for $149 (pictured, $50 under last year's price)
Here's how touring your home with a purpose -- and a handful of tools -- will help you cut household costs and maintain the property's value.
