Value dollar store made me realised how overcharged other shops are

Saw that Japan Home Clementi Mall was also having clearance sales. Nothing interesting spotted, TBH...

Sometimes if I pass by I'll just go inside have a look see got offer or not, if have just buy enough to keep for later.

As it stands I still have 5*80pc in my room to use:s13:

I also recommend, if you use dehumidifiers, to check out their offerings when there's a special price (2 for $X). I find JH pricing more value compared to those sold at supermarkets or guardian/watsons.

U got a good deal for the Domestos wipes.

Currently , I bought from ABC shop 65c for 40 pieces per pack.
3 pack = $1.95 but total 120 wipes.

Yours is $2 for 240 wipes, easily 50% discount.

For the dehumidifiers, i will buy from Guardian/ Watsons only when there is a one for one promo.
Is Japan Home offer still better than Guardian/ Watsons promo?

From my experience, yes.
But only for the ones that supposedly have a 720mL absorption capacity.
Simply compare the prices from the Guardian/Watson with Japan Home.

Also see the capacity of the dehumidifiers, although I don't believe these humidifiers actually absorb their advertised rates, no matter where you buy them from:s13:

Mangosteen always rotten. All supermarkets same.
I refused to buy mangosteen from supermarkets unless can choose. Had a bad experience from SS last year or year before, and asked for refund.

this luncheon meat ho jiak? How much sodium after 20%?
I bought to try, since it's cheaper than Codfo's discounted price even.

Not salty. Texture-wise, I still prefer Codfo because that's chopped pork and ham.

I actually boiled (normally to remove access salt), but tomorrow I'll try throwing into the airfryer and see what happens. :grin:

Thanks for your review.
At 111 for afternoon tea. Just bought the one and only one tin at finest store :grin: Sodium 600mg/100g, less than Tulip luncheon meat (less 40% sodium) 630mg/100g :s13:

For Lotte luncheon meat lovers, saw Lotte luncheon meat on offer at 3.55.

Oh, I bought Lotte to try as well. Most reviews I read claimed it's not salty, so I can live with lower salt plus lower cost. Codfo's offer price is at least $3.75. :s13:
