We have a confession: We really don't get the IKEA adoration. Our last visit reminded us that we don't like particleboard and plastic (with a couple of exceptions noted below), and that we don't believe in buying furniture if it's not going to last. However, we do love eight (cheap!) things at the Swedish store...

• Dish scrubbers (which we think should be disposable -- although recyclable would be better)

VIREN Toilet brushes (again, disposable is good)

• Wooden hangers

STRIPA Wall Shelves (we blogged them here)

We also loved their simple wood peg racks, linen curtains, and cotton IRIS window shades, but alas, they all seem to have vanished.
