I love Daiso. I could spend all day in there. It takes me back to when I lived in Japan and pretty much furnished whole apartments shopping in 100 yen stores.
I love the combination of cute and practical. And I love finding things I never knew I needed until that very moment.
Like this 'picnic folding mat'. It might not be as comfortable as a fold-up camp stool, but it's a lot cuter than sitting on a plastic bag on wet grass when you want to sketch something. It's very lightweight and it easily fits into my bag (except when I leave it sticking out so I can photograph it!). And for $2.80 I don't see how I could go wrong here.
Now I just need a chance to test it out!
