Did you know that the sole Canadian location of Japan’s flagship 100-yen shop is just a SkyTrain ride away? Daiso is two stories of brightly coloured brilliance, and if you haven’t been, your life is about to change. Rush to Richmond (or Downtown for the mini-Daiso, Yokoyaya) and stock up on these 11 things and more. Fact: most of the products at Daiso cost a mere toonie!

1. More Cupboard Space

At $2 each, buy a few of these for winter. That way it’s not a tragedy if you leave one in a cab or at your Tinder date’s place. Plus there are lots of cool transparent styles.

3. Closet Organizers
