We just got back from Ikea and what an ordeal it was. We knew we could get some smaller boxes in our trunk with part of the back seat folded down but didn't know just how many boxes would fit. We underestimated the sizes of a few items. Once purchased and in the parking lot we started the juggle. One box just wasn't fitting. Finally I thought to take the pieces out of the box and it just fit. We barely squeezed everything in. I had to squish in the back with Aubrey and it was a very long 30 mins home!
