But perhaps some of the country’s most unique products to spend your cash on are just everyday items you can find in most Japanese homes.

Perhaps one of the most successful of Japan’s 100 yen stores is Daiso, which stocks a huge variety of useful household goods and snacks (among some of its more, um, interesting wares).

But did you know that Daiso also exists outside of Japan? Here’s what happened when two YouTubers from California decided to share their haul of goodies from their local Daiso with their followers online!

Don’t believe in the magic of the 100 yen store? This product will seal the deal!

A lot of people think that the dollar store isn’t worth their time in America. There is this stigma that all the products are really cheap, plus, most of the items are actually over a dollar! 100-yen stores in Japan such as Daiso and Seria, are still proving they know how to treat the thrifty shopper right, however. You’re always able to find just what you need there, but Japanese Twitter users are currently all sharing their excitement and various uses for a product you wouldn’t think you could buy for only a buck.

Say hello to the hermetic sealer!
