I couldnt't agree more. I am a second year college student (couldnt possibly have more of a tight budget), and I just got my/our first apartment. Almost all of the major (and a lot of minor) things I got at IKEA. It is one of the best places I have ever been to, and I live in a city (Allentown, PA), and I have been to everywhere around here.
