What to get from Ikea?

It looks like I'm going to get a $30 gift card from Ikea due to a problem with my recent online purchase and delivery. Hey, I'll never turn that down!

I know a lot of you folks use products from Ikea in your trailer. Help me spend that money (and probably more!) - let me know what all you have in your trailer from Ikea that's worth having in mine.

Thanks!

Towel bar and other bathroom accessories. One of their brands allows you to tighten the suction and works well in the bathroom!

Hi: NW Cat Owner... Don't know if they still have 'em but we have a flip top garbage bucket that fits under the stove top cupboard. A tool set w/ hammer, pliers, screwdriver set...but you need to add the square drive bits #1& 2. Alf

Snap together garbage can with handle. Can be hung outside with suction hooks. We leave it on the inside of the door. Also free standing.

These are my favorite IKEA additions to my 17B.

A towel holder with 4 bars: GRUNDTAL Towel holder with 4 bars - - IKEA
If you have a place to hang it, you can hang multiple towels and washcloths in a minimum of space and it folds back out of the way.

Bathmats: TOFTBO Bathmat - IKEA
They are great as bathmats, rugs to get sand and dirt off your feet before getting into bed, and my dogs like curling up on them.

And yes, cinnamon rolls!!!

I tried the suction cup things they sell, actually bought about 4 different things.
I couldn't get any of them to stay stuck for some reason.
I have a Moen stick on grab handle for the inside of the door and it works great so I don't get it.
Anyways, Ikea had a silverware tray that is made out of a thin enough plastic that it was easy to score with a utility knife and make fit into the drawer. it's grey plastic and may be 'Rational'.
They had led light bars, three or four sections about 11 inches long snap together, they are 12 volts so if you are handy you can just cut off the transformer and wire them up to the trailer and put them in the counter cupboards. Some skills are required for this. They are only about 12 dollars.
We use the rug that someone else has mentioned, very good.
And I have no problem spending money at Ikea, be it for the trailer or the house.
