IKEA fans are rejoicing as one savvy shopper has revealed how you can get your favourite homeware for loads less.
Anita Birges, from Australia, shared three tricks everyone should know for their next trip to one of the massive stores.
Posting on Instagram, the home organisation pro explained that most Ikea stores have an 'As-Is' section.
This is usually located towards the end of the shop and it's where you can nab "preloved furniture, discounted items, gently used and even ex showroom displays at a discounted price," Anita explained.
In the clip she showed of huge baskets full of curtains for 40 percent off, as well as loads of other bargains.
And if you want to skip the first half of Ikea and just go straight to the marketplace, you can do that too.

Anita said you can always enter through the exit rather than following the arrows around the entire showroom like a maze – although it might be quite good if you're trying to get some steps in.
"When I come to Ikea I want to get in and out as fast as possible and get the organising solutions I need without having to do that massive walk through," she said.
After you've grabbed everything you need you can also ditch any extra cardboard before you even get home.
Anita said: "There are blue bins just off the Ikea car park that you can recycle all your flattened cardboard."
