Winding through the zoo known as IKEA can be overwhelming at times, especially when it seems like everyone chooses to shop there at the same time.
Readers Digest suggests there's a best time to shop at the Swedish furniture giant, though. They told partners USA TODAY and Southern Living that the most crowded days to shop at IKEA are not only weekends, but also Mondays and Fridays.
Instead, you'll want to hit the aisles on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday mornings. These are the stores quietest times, so this would be ideal especially if you're claustrophobic (or you're sad that someone is always sitting in the cute Stocksund chair you eye up every time you go).
