Here's a little something to get you through the week. If you've got $100 to spend on home furnishings and want to spend it at Ikea this weekend, you can dine at their restaurant for free. Just imagine: That plate of 15 meatballs that's served with mashed potatoes that would normally be $3.99? Free. That is, if you have 100 bucks to spend on a lamp or anything made out of particle board. [Brokelyn]
