10 wacky but useful things to snag at Don Don Donki’s bargain corner

It looks like Singapore’s hype for the endlessly cheery Don Don Donki has yet to die down, with the Japanese discount store opening its new outlet at City Square Mall earlier this month. This outlet, the brand’s largest on the Little Red Dot, boasts three unique features including a food court, a more extensive perishables and delicatessen offering, and our favourite, a bargain corner, with items selling from as low as $1. Yes, and you thought Donki’s regular items were affordable enough.

With boxes upon boxes bearing handwritten price tags (a signature Don Quijote displays in Japan) and tons of stuff hanging overhead, the cramped area can be a little unnerving for those with OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder). But if you can get past that, you will be able to unearth some gems in the treasure chests.

From the weird and wonderfully useful to the… slightly more questionable, here are some unexpected items you never knew you needed - all for $10 or less. Read on for more!

Don Don Donki is located at Basement 2 of City Square Mall, 180 Kitchener Rd, Singapore 208539. Open daily from 9am to midnight.
