One Year With Ikea’s Second-Cheapest Sleeper Sofa
Nicole Dieker

When my sister and I moved to Texas last year, we looked all over town before getting a couch from a secondhand store for $60. FANTASTIC DECISION. It is soft and large and sturdy, and while it could be prettier it is not terrible (it looks like a soft beige sweater made into a couch). The only downside has been the strange and unpleasant experience of finding other people’s old crumbs between the cushions.

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
