Anyone ever get any pens and things from Muji? Lovely little set of pens available tow "jot a thought" or two down. but who's counting? The notebooks will also have you smiling with pleasure. And the price isn't bad enough to make you think twice. So, anyone enjoy Muji?

Well, I've got brain damage on the side of my brain, and I don't know which side, left or right, where I huffed gasoline for ten long years.




Doesn't your new MBP (16 cores and inches likewise) have a notepad application, op? What is the advantage to taking analog notes?

That's precisely why I'm personally not going to purchase anything from Muji at the current moment OP. However I do like to keep an open mind and keep abreast of what is cool, and share it with my fellow posters.

I got no note books. I think the pens are extremely high-quality for their price and I bought a lot of them because I don't plan on using any other brand any time soon.

The real winner product is washi tape (biodegradable and recyclable AND decorative), but you can get that basically anywhere now.

I wish Muji sold Frixion pens.

I visited one in Melbourne many years ago and there had been much talk of opening in Brisbane (fwiw Moss Burger and Daiso opened franchizes in QLD first so I was hopeful) but that was probs 8 years ago now and I aint got no stinking muji here to spend money on their skincare or stationary.

Miniso is a Chinese attempt to squish Muji's aesthetic into Daiso's business model. Results may vary.

I have a ridiculous amount of stuff from Muji, glassware, bowls, bed linen, candles, stationery and whatnot. Their clothes sizes donít seem to have made any concession to chunky gaijin though, so apart from the odd pair of 90 degree socks as a stocking filler for my wife at Xmas I have to say Ďiieí to their clothing department.

I think Miniso also is trying to put some Uniqlo pizzazz in there as well. At least with their logo.

So, for the Tokyo bachelors out there:

Uniqlo - Underwear, socks, sweatpants, occasional fluffy cardigan
Muji - Notepads, humidifiers/scent diffusers, bedding, slippers, maybe a bottle of tea
Olympic - Anything you want from Muji but it's too far away and off-brand will do
Tokyu Hands - Xacto knives, bath bombs, wooden dowels, puzzles, stationery, metal dowels, Dremmel bits, hacksaws, money belts for travel, tongue scrapers and bath rugs

edit; forgot Don Quijote - CBD gummies, hangover tonics, masturbatory aids, cocktail mixers and fire hazards

You might think muji is only for Japanese people, but I know a Chinese guy who goes there all the time. I figure if they let a Chinese guy in you can probably go there as well op

I wish there was a Muji in Atlanta. It's a nice store to get some classy, no-nonsense basics. I have considered buying notebooks off there but I'm easily the kind of person who buys 100 notebooks, writes in 15 pages or so and then mysteriously loses them, so it's all quite wasted on me.

I have a black faux-leather notebook I intend to write the final draft of something(s) in, and a black ink ballpoint with some bright flowers and a cheery festive skull grinning on the end. I got them on the Oregon coast, the last time my family was able to take a vacation at all. no, I do not know the brand name of either item. branding has precious little to do with why theyíre important to me
