20 Under-£10 Buys You Need From Ikea

We all love Ikea because it's so damn affordable. And yet, the amount of money we drop when we shop there can be truly astounding. A quick trip to pick up a table lamp or a new mirror can turn into an epic, no-holds-barred shopping extravaganza — your cart piled high with all of the cute, cheap things you never knew you needed. Your eyes furtively search other shoppers' hauls to see what you might have missed. Your mouth feels dry. Your palms are suddenly sweaty. Your heart? Racing. It's Ikea fever, and it ain't pretty.

We can't do anything to quell your urges for affordable Scandinavian swag, but we can help keep your grand total in check. Ahead, find some of the best buys the retailer has to offer, all ringing it at £10 or less.
