IKEA Just Dropped The Perfect £30 Starter Pack For Students

Best. Idea. Ever.


We all love a trip to IKEA, don’t we? Well, if you’re a student who’s heading off to university for the first time (or about to go into a new student house), then you’re probably starting to think about all the things you’re going to need. Or you haven’t even thought about it yet.

Luckily for you, IKEA has introduced two new ‘starter packs’ that contain everything you’ve forgotten.

They’ve been spotted at the Edinburgh store, but fingers crossed that they’re also available elsewhere in the country as they are a brilliant idea.

Annoyingly, we can only really figure out what’s in the £80 IKEA box. But judging by the pictures we can make out bowls, plates, mugs, and other bits and bobs in the £30 one.

Chanelle Anderson shared the pictures into the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK Group – and thousands of people liked and commented on the post.

She wrote: “IKEA – something I had thought about when I was struggling moving into my first home. Ikea have these starter packs under £30 & £80

“Sorry the lighting in IKEA was shocking maybe someone can post up a better photo of the items available. I was trying to grab the image as quick as possible- it was right next to the trolleys in the Marketplace where the staff go.”

The £80 box contains:

  • Baking tin
  • Bowls
  • Chopping board
  • Pizza cutter
  • Can opener
  • Bottle opener
  • Whisk
  • Turner
  • Pasta server
  • Plates
  • Dishwashing brush
  • Mugs
  • Glasses
  • Frying Pan
  • Saucepan with lid
  • Microwave lid
  • Colander
  • Grater
  • 12pc set of cutlery
  • Box

Fans of the Facebook page wrote: “Saw these the other week, they look fab!”, another added: “I need all of that I wanna see pictures of what’s inside😍 I’ve just came back from IKEA as well [sic]”.

Judging by the reaction, these starter packs are going down a storm. If you’re a student, head to the store before they run out.
