The Happiest Magical Place in Korea
This is my happy place and I find it so magical! Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating by this place in Korea will solve about 98% of your problems fill needs you never thought you had. This magical happy place is called Daiso.
There are no words, which can explain or express my love for Daiso. Oh, you don’t what is Daiso. Well, let me explain it to you. Daiso is a strange combination of Five Below, Walmart, and Family Dollar. Daisos are found all over Korea and in other countries in Asia. There really is not a comparison other than a dollar store and I hate to use that word. Daiso is so much more than that. Did you forget to get some wrapping paper for a gift? Head to Daiso. Do you need some last-minute birthday candles and hats; then head to Daiso.
Offering cheap dollar store goods is not the only thing Daiso offers. They also can outfit your kitchen, bathroom, and living room at a good price. If you’re into gardening, you can also score some good gardening tool, plants, and supplies. I even picked up a mini herb garden and managed not to kill it! I also was able to get some actual hardware to hang some pictures in my room much to the non-amusement of my neighbors. Because everything is so cheap, I tend to walk away with more stuff than I originally came in there for. That’s okay, but the shit’s so cheap. I’d take my local Daiso over anything my local Walmart can offer me any day.
