    So from an inspiration from another thread...

    What are some great things to get at Daiso. And please dont' say everything!

    Maybe it's a product that you tried and really liked it. I am always so iffy to try $2 products, so I never really buy it.

    Sometimes when I go there I seriously buy useless things that I don't even need. The only reason is because it's cheap and cute.

    ie. certain lip stick, a bag of chips they sell, etc...

    for the stationary i always buy it because it looks cute.. and then i don't use it because it's so cute. so i stopped myself now. also i always think you can get it cheaper at nightmarket (even though i never check for them)

    are their umbrellas good or are they just for a short period of time? i hate carrying long ones because i also hit/poke someone... do these ones brake easily?

    They have awesome giftboxes. (really cute girlie ones, like heartshape etc etc.)
    and fake eyelashes~ really nice ^^

    and they also sell these face washes,
    my fav is the one that you put it on, let it dry, and peel it off
    and all those gross white oil stuff on your nose, etc etc, comes out.

    do you guys trust their makeup there? i want to try their liquid eyeliner....

    one time my friend bought an eyeliner pencil and it didn't work at all. it felt like a pencil crayon and like the ones you buy that the $1 store

    their eyelash curler actually works really well. i buy those folders that have clear pockets. i forget what they're called, but you know those things you put your sheets of paper in to keep them unwrinkly and clean?

    don't buy anything that you're gonna put on your face!! I once bought liquid eye liner and it sucked because it was too thick and it was not waterproof or fast drying at all.
    And then I bought blush there cuz i saw a blogger saying it's so good so I thought why not...and later I discovered it made my skin break out SO badly!!!!!!!

    their nail polish is ok. i usually get their clear top coat NP.
    I also buy lunch boxes (better looking than the average lunch cases), organizers like the boxes and containers for stuff, mascara comb, little spray bottles, metal nail files!! (thumbs up), brush cleansers (thumbs up), little notebooks (well designed, there are calendars as well). oh and another must-try is their nose much better than biore.

    here are the "don't buy"s: make-up brushes, socks and things related to shoes (the heel liners and flat socks are plain disappointing)

    i got this 3-in-1 nail buffer/polisher there, one side is grey and the another side is part pink and part white, it's pretty amazing. i want to try their false eyelashes, they look pretty decent. has everyone tried their false eyelashes yet?

    I love their storage containers; I use them to store my make up in.
    I also buy the eyelid stickers and sometimes false eye lashes from there.

    I also buy the storage containers. I bought a long one that fits my straightener perfectly so now I don't have to take it out and put it away every time I use it. Some of the useful stuff I've got from there are:

    1) storage containers
    2) small compact mirrors
    3) makeup bags
    4) lunch bags
    5) little shampoo bottles and pill boxes for carrying around advil/tylenol at school
    6) wrapping paper and gift boxes
    7) towel for working out
    8) cell phone dangling crap (although that really shouldn't be categorized as 'useful')
    9) bobby pins and combs (I really like their rat-tail combs)

    Anyone knows where I could find some tools to make bento? like rice/egg molds, nori punch cutter. I'd checked it at Daiso, but it seems doesn't have the tools. I also found similar items on Ebay, but they're pretty expensive and I thought there must be cheaper somewhere else. Thanks.

    Oh and I forgot, their car fresheners are actually pretty good compared to the more expensive ones you can buy at the other store (that sometimes doesn't even work/or are strong enough).

    I wanted to get a car freshener too! But I was scared that the chemicals might be bad to inhale in an enclosed space, so I don't put anything like that in my car.

    I like buying their stationary, those hard folders things, and random stuff here and there. Do not buy their skin products! I tried this face mask thing and it totally made my skin break out.

    I also usually buy their umbrellas. They break after a few months but hey it's only a toonie...

    hahaha i'm a fan of their 'cake in a cup':laughing: they usually have them near the checkouts, and they come in 2 flavors... caramel or coffee. All you do is, you pour the mixture into a mug and you beat 1 egg into it. Then you microwave it for 2 minutes, and you'll get this really yummy sponge cake that you can eat right out of the mug. :p
