Today I spent some time at a rather large Japanese Dollar store. I ended up with a basket on my arm tossing things in left and right. I caught myself doing this and had to have a stern word.. Do you really NEED a towel in the shape of a dog? While I answered this with a negative, I still ended up walking away with 10 small packets of tissues (with cute Japanese cartoons on), a pack of cactus-shaped gel window stickers, and a sugar pot in the form of a chicken with a shell on it's head.
So as you can see I JUST stuck with the essentials.
