On the weekend I went to Daiso, a Japanese store known for its high-quality and cheap household items. Nearly all the items in the store are $2. You might think these products are of dollar store quality, meaning crappy, but that’s not the case. You’d be surprised at what $2 can get you.
Because of the price, I bought a whole bunch of items I didn’t really need. I bought a USB cable for my phone just in case the five I already have weren’t enough. I also got a flashlight that you can power by hand, which seems like a good idea for emergencies. The most interesting item I purchased is what you see above. For some reason, they sell these tiny, mini-vises. That’s a poker chip in the photo for size reference. I have no current use for a small vise but I decided I wanted one. Perhaps I’ll find a use some day.
