$0.49 Book-ends

The magical Swedish land of Ikea is good for many things, but among the most wonderful are their oh-so-cheap Bokis book-ends. I'm picky about book-ends. They shouldn't weigh much, they shouldn't take up a ton of space, and they better be cheap because my book collection grows regularly enough they may fall into disuse.

At a scant 49 cents apiece for durable, lightweight transparent plastic book-ends, I can't complain. They blend in with the books and the shelf and it's easy to grab as many as you need without breaking the bank. A Saturday Ikea run left me with a new wastepaper basket (a need previously filled by "the floor under my desk") and 6 more bookends for under $10.

Plus, since you have to buy them at Ikea, you have to go to Ikea. It smells so good in Ikea. It's a magical mixture of fresh cinnamon rolls and new furniture. Mmm, cinnamon rolls.
