You know when you wait until the last-minute to buy something and it’s too late? Well this is what happened to me in the case of the IKEA EXPEDIT.
I knew I wanted one or two before it was being discontinued. How did I know it was being discontinued? Unfortunately this girl has a sickness. I scour the internet constantly so I am always aware of all of my options whether it’s with furniture and home decor or fashion. Anyhow, you would think the amount of times I went to IKEA I would have grabbed one, but we were always focused on the kitchen. I knew I needed to go before April hit, but kept putting it off since we eventually would have to go back there for other items. It was too late by the time I went. I knew that; I knew better.
Now I am stuck with the option of the Kallax, Expedit’s replacement. The only difference is the thickness in edges since their whole reason for changing to the Kallax was to use less wood, be more environmentally friendly. I would be 100% fine with getting the Kallax, except they don’t make it in the high gloss white. Of all things to get rid of, why the high gloss white IKEA??!!!! They have the plain white, but it is just not the same. Ebay has the retired high gloss white EXPEDIT’s selling for up to $300. I don’t blame these sellers, I should have went and bought a bunch of them and sold them for a high premium too. Smart people. This girl almost considered paying that ridiculous price for particle board since it is that good of use for particle board, but I might just have to get the Kallax.
Take a look at all the options the Expedit and now Kallax has to offer.
Now do you see why I want one so bad?? This piece can serve as many options. Pretty sure a Kallax is in my near future unless someone out there wants to give me their Expedit? :)
Even if you don’t care for it, at least I hope you took away one thing – don’t wait until last-minute for something you really want. It might be too late!
Wishing all of you who Procrastinate less Procrastination! :)
