    Im not getting the point here!! :confused: :) :confused:

    I would say that 90% of the furniture in my apartment is from ikea... I think their designs are quite appealing and they certainly have the best prices...
    As a college student... I dont see any other options for home furnishings...

    Oh well.. maybe Ikea has a different reputation in other countries... But on that note... In my home country, which is Malaysia, Ikea is also the top brand of furnishings for young adults....?? :confused:

    No I didn't mean it like that, you said if everything in life fitted so perfectly but Ikea is a well known seller of furniture you have to make fit yourself because it is sold as "flat packed"

    Sometimes it's difficult to get the pieces to fit together and you are always left with extra pieces and/or screws.

    It's just an urban myth in the UK about "flat packed" furniture.

    No offense meant

    First let me say that NO offense was taken in the first place.... ;)

    tell me about it!!!! I get mad carrying the furniture in the cart at ikea.... :mad: get mad trying to fit the furniture in my car or a borrowed van... :mad: get mad trying to get the funiture out of the car and into the house... :mad: get mad trying to figure out their "simple" instructions...(some are fine and some are just NOT)... :mad: get mad trying to put the stuff together(missing parts, wrong side, uneven screws, missing tools)... :mad: :mad: and after everything is finished I look at it or sit on it and :mad: I missed a screw somewhere!!!! :eek:

    hahahah... vent vent vent... and to think that i still get all my stuff from there... i guess low prices really attract!!!

    Hehehehe :D

    As a past employee of IKEA for 3 years, it is good to hear that the IKEA problem is a global issue, not just us Aussies struggling to learn and adapt to ways of living with Swedish / European furniture! :D

    What I want to see if for some of the people who have everything, including the kitchen sink in their bags to have before and after (empty and full) pictures of the bags, some have to be bursting at the seams.

    When I'm cycling, I have to carry a light bag. But otherwise, my main racket bag typically contains:

    First-aid kit
    Copy of the laws of badminton
    2 Karakal SL-70 rackets
    1 tube Yonex AS-50 shuttles
    1 tube Yonex Mavis 370 shuttles
    Wallet/phone/watch etc.
    Shoes (Yonex SHB89M)
    Socks (Thorlos)
    Towel for showering
    Clothes to change into after shower
    Bunch of bananas in a plastic bag

    I carry my water bottle separately, since it tends to leak. Sometimes I add some old rackets, if I think other people will need them to play.

    If you think that packing a racket bag with all this stuff is tough, you should see how compact my first-aid kit is :D Took me almost an hour to work out how to repack it the first time.....

    because I don't like to strain my shoulders...

    ... i keep a relatively light bag.

    I've got a Head two compartment tennis bag that probably holds something like 6-8 badinton rackets, but inside, I have:

    MP55
    MP77
    Cab 30m
    6 X mavis 350
    6 x mavis 300
    2-3 x mavis 7 "Turkeys" that I "accidentally" took from a local club:rolleyes:
    12 X Kason "Standard" birdies
    spare overgip (why so many birds? Sometimes I go to help out beginner friends, and no one wants to do shuttle feeds with just half a dozen birds! so whenever they go on special, i have this compulsive habit of buying more birds.)
    1 X generic shorts
    1 X shirt, usually a nike dri-fit or a helly hansen
    2 X kneebraces
    1 X elbow brace
    1 X roll general purpose cloth tape
    1 X pair of shoes
    1 X spare pair of socks (essential!)
    6-12 X packs of silica gel that I've collected from various boxes of chinese noodles (I usually go to school or work after the gym, and letting my wet clothes soak in their own sweat gives me shivering thoughts.)
    1 litre of orange juice in an indestructible nalagene bottle (I used to just bring the carton, until once, i crushed it and it leaked everywhere. NOT NICE.)
    1x gym lock
    1x small bottle of whoopass, hopes and dreams

    Just a question,

    I've noticed that a lot of you people bring strings with you in your bag. It this just because you're too lazy to take them out in the first place and prefer keep all your badminton stuff in one place, or are you somehow prepared to restring your rackets onsite at the court if you break one?!:rolleyes:
