Daiso Melbourne CBD

Daiso Melbourne CBD Entrance
Does everyone else love Daiso as much as me? I see lots of nodding heads. My friends in Singapore are shocked that we have Daiso in Melbourne. This is because they think we live under a rock. It is $2 in Singapore but in Melbourne it's $2.80. We get ripped off again. It is a shop where you walk in and think what stuff will I buy that I don't need. Oh yeah.. I don't need these stickers but I will still get them. $2.80! Woohoo. There are good bargains in the makeup department. A big packet of sponges would be $8-9 is $2.80 in here.

Oh hai adorable cutlery set
There is nothing better than being able to browse each and every aisle in Daiso on your own. Yes all of you mothers would relate to this. So this is my Daiso haul.

Daiso Haul
If you want crayons, these soft crayons that I bought are incredibly good. This is the second box that I have and I bought this for the boys' family daycare provider. The 2 sponges are so cute! When I went home with them. The boys were in the bath so I handed it to them. Priceless moment.. D says to me. Thank you for my sponge Mummy.

The rice crackers were prawn cracker flavoured and the boys call them big crackers. They are really yummy to be honest. Make sure you look for them. 

Daiso in Melbourne CBD is bigger and more spacious than Doncaster. :) Can't wait to go back. Woohoo.. I might already need to go back as we are missing one fork from the cutlery set already.....

  1. I loooove Daiso! I always end up with a basket full of things I do not need at all or have already. It's always tough going through the process of putting things back before reaching the checkout counter :(

  2. If someone dared to say they didn't like Daiso then there is something wrong with them! How can you not like the flat rate pricing? I hardly go because its not that convenient for me in Sydney but they've just opened one in the Sydney CBD too!

    Those sponges are way cute

  3. DAISO! Love it. The first night of my trip to Japan I went nuts at Daiso in my over tired, jetlagged state and got back to the hotel room and thought-
    Well...fuck. None of this is going to fit in any of my bags.
    Dont regret a single purchase though!

  5. The Melbourne store is the best, so big and full of more goodies than the other two stores. I hope the new one at Highpoint (my local) is as big as the Melbourne one!

    1. VF tells me that the Highpoint is like Doncaster which means narrow aisles. Get thee to the CBD store stat.

  6. I've been to the Doncaster store a few times but not the city version. Looks like they have a wider range of stuff so I'm going to treat myself to a long lunch break and check it out!

  8. Daiso is awesome. I already secretly love those hideous $2 shops - fumes and all - but with Daiso I'd died and gone to $2 shop heaven. Have you been to the one in Richmond? Don't bother. The city one has like 3 times as much stuff.
