IKEA has a pot and pan lid organizer (http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/94577183 - broken link) for $2.99 that I'm interested in, but they don't ship the item. Is anyone going soon that I could pay for the item? Ebay has it for $15 but I only want to spend the $3 on it. Or, has anyone seen this exact one locally? I've got a lot of lids and this is perfect.

We are planning a trip to IKEA soon. I'd like to go Super Bowl Sunday with the hope that it will be less crowded. I just have to convince my DH.

Most of my "stuff" right out of college was all IKEA. Unfortunately, I've noticed that the quality of many of their products, especially furniture is less than it used to be.

Nonetheless, IKEA sells great and inexpensive products for organization. That's what we are going for.

I also saw that there is a Friendly's near IKEA. I love their ice cream! We'll definitely be stopping here after IKEA!

Would you mind picking the item up for me when you go? I live by Cary Crossroads.

I haven't seen the IKEA organizer, but I recently took a collapsible wooden dish drainer (it hinges like an "X") and set in the cabinet under my stove and slipped my pan lids into the grooves. I have them organized smallest in the front to largest as they go toward the back.

Takes up a bit of room, but you can slide bread pans or something in under the "X" space if you are short on space. Works like a dream for me, and no more digging thorugh lid chaos!

Our cabinets are completely full; we have to remove everything in a cabinet to get something out, it's a real pain. I bought shelving today with some hooks to build a pot rack with csome cool looking "celtic" twisted braces.

I'm trying to convince dh to get the Billy bookshelf system. Anyone had any experience with those?

Brooks2007, I love that idea for the lids. I might have to try that. I have plenty of cabinet space. Those lids are annoying tho.

What does this have to do with the original post?

Is there an IKEA closer than the one in Charlotte? I'm not seeing one on the store locator. That's pretty far away.

There's one in D.C. also but that's a farther drive than the Charlotte one. I was mainly asking if someone was already going and could pickup the $3 item for me since I'm not driving hours for a $3 item.
