Looking for some storage bins to organize your apartment? Or what about some inexpensive school supplies for your classes? Need nice picture frames for your Korea photos but don't want to break the bank? That's where the Korean dollar store Daiso comes into play.
Daiso (다이소) takes dollar stores to a whole new level. I just moved into a new apartment about a month ago and thanks to Daiso, I was able to get a plethora of household items (dishes, storage boxes, Tupperware, silverware, etc.) without spending a ton of money. I even managed to find a good variety of seeds to start my spring flower and herb garden. The merchandise that they carry here isn't cheap in quality as you might think, considering that it's coming from a dollar store.
If there's something you're looking for and you don't want to pay HomePlus or E-Mart prices for it, why not check out the local Daiso to see what they have in stock? You just might be surprised.
