Every year sees the release of a new Ikea catalogue, and with it, the collective dream-sigh of budget-minded homebodies everywhere. The catalogue a borderline-achievable romance novel for your apartment, complete with assurances that you can build most everything inside yourself.

This year, the catalog theme is Goodbye expectations. Hello you! which sounds like an inspirational game show hosted by Ashton Kutcher.

Sounds like a plan.
