Everything $2.80 everyday at Daiso Japan, Chatswood

We all go to $2 shops from time to time. Daiso is a Japanese version of the $2 shop with a greater variety and huge selection of products with great value for money.

Daiso Japan is the largest Japanese low-price retail company with 3200 franchise stores worldwide. There are currently three stores in Australia; one in Sydney and two in Melbourne. Their Sydney store is located on the ground floor of the Mandarin Center in Chatswood where the parking is free up to 3 hours with your purchase. The store sells absolutely and almost everything you need for your daily lifestyle.

Japanese products are cute and innovative. The product lines are from 100 different kinds of storage and container, lunch boxes, baking moulds, stationary, gift bags, notebooks, kids toys, origami papers, little gadgets, party goods, cute household items and the list goes on. You name it. Daiso will be most likely to have it.

Bento and Baking sections

Personally, I love the Bento section where all sushi moulds, cute lunch boxes, sandwich moulds, and chopstick sets are nicely presented. They are all too cute and at only $2.80 I find it hard to resist. Also, the Japanese Kitchenware section is fully stocked with Japanese style bowls, plates and saucers. Some of these are "Made in Japan" where most of the products are "Made in China".

You can easily spend hours browsing the products from aisle to aisle checking out on all the different things they have to offer If you find something you really like, just buy it as their stock tends to run out rather fast.

There is also Daiso within the Asian supermarket at Town Hall. Walk towards the Bathurst st exit and it's on the left just past the escalators and juice bar. Not the full range like Chatswood but still $2.80

An amazing shop! Japanese teachers love to shop here for 'prizes' for their students. There's one in the Myer Centre in Brisbane, too.
