Nick Lewis, a design and decorating YouTuber, can't help but grab a snake plant on the way out of Ikea.
Meanwhile, Kristen McGowan, an interior designer and content creator, has to stop in the kitchen department, where she almost always picks up a $ 2.99 milk frother.
After purchasing and using dozens - sometimes hundreds - of Ikea items, six superfans share the impulse items they buy every time they visit the store.
Several Ikea fans have said they rarely leave the store without a basket or two.

Lidia Salazar, an Instagrammer and TikToker who focused on interior design, told Insider that her home was filled with Ikea baskets.
There are baskets in the living room, entrance area, kitchen and throughout the house. So it makes sense that she'd add to her collection almost every time she visits the store.
Salazar isn't alone in her love for Ikea baskets. Rebecca Heart, a blogger and instagrammer who specializes in design and renovation, also fell in love with Ikea's baskets, which are great for decorative storage.
Interior designer and content creator Kristen McGowan added that Ikea's baskets are affordable and go with today's interior design trends like rattan.
McGowan loved the baskets so much that she even found a way to chop the $ 10 Flådis seaweed basket into a pendant light for her home.
"You can use the Ikea baskets and turn them into coffee tables, lights and the like," she said.
Three superfans said they would never leave without grabbing Ikea's affordable feather pillow inserts.

Salazar said she swore by Ikea's duck feather pillow insert. She said the pillows are the best quality for their cost.
For example, the Fjadrar pillow insert costs $ 10 for the 26 "by 26" size.
Salazar wasn't the only one to mention Fjadrar's pillow insert.
McGowan and Kiva Brent, a DIY and design YouTuber, added that they love the stakes. Brent said she seldom left the store without grabbing at least a pillow.
They often pick up a pillowcase or two.

Brent said she had so many missions at this point that she would need pillowcases to keep up with her habit. Almost every time she visits an Ikea, she almost always grabs a pillowcase, she said.
Her favorite is Ikea's line of linen pillowcases. Brent said she could mix the $ 14 covers with $ 100 covers all over her house and no one can tell the difference in quality.
"It looks very cohesive, which I think is very important," Brent told Insider.
Meanwhile, two fans have said they almost always grab a houseplant at the last minute.

"I don't pretend to stay alive, but I always grab some kind of plant," Kim Lee, senior content creator at Free to Family, a blog that focuses on deliberate living, told Insider.
There is an outdoor area near an Ikea's checkout counter that is usually filled with live indoor plants.
While Ikea may not stock exotic or unusual plants, it often has popular houseplants like the aloe plant or pothos.
Nick Lewis, a YouTuber who creates interior design and décor content, said he's always been impressed with Ikea's plant collection. He said he usually snatches a snake plant or two on the way out because they're affordable and difficult to kill.

A new plant needs a new home, so Lewis said he'll also stop by Ikea's flower pot collection before checking out.
While he eschews the decor sector and opts for smaller, one-of-a-kind brands for decorative items throughout his home, this is not the case with plant pots. Lewis said he loved Ikea's potty collection for the price and the wide range of colors.
Other superfans said they need to check out the latest affordable kitchen items.

Lisa Herland, a realtor and design blogger, said she loves buying Ikea's kitchen items, mostly because they are so affordable.
Kim Lee, the lead content developer at Free to Family, a blog that focuses on deliberate living, told Insider that she also loves Ikea's kitchen items.
Though she tries to keep her kitchen tidy, one of her favorite items she's bought is Ikea's Grundvattnet, a colander that costs $ 5.99.
The sieve is the width of a sink so that Lee can wash and dry her vegetables, berries or dishes.
A fan always picks up their favorite milk frother in the store.

McGowan said she tried a handful of milk frothers, but Ikea's product is gaining in froth ability, price and size.
"It literally works in seconds," she said.
The nozzle, which retails for $ 2.99, is worth every penny, she said. Because the utensil is so affordable, McGowan said she almost always snaps one to give to a friend or just in case her nozzle breaks.
