Going for that minimalistic feel

The era of simply throwing stationery into my bag had to come to an end. I had to decide what kind of pencil case will enable me to transit smoothly to an organised lifestyle. I spent long and hard thinking about it until I chanced upon the MUJI PP Pen Case ($3.30).

It was a simple plastic box that lasted me for about 6 years. The great thing about it’s simplicity is that it’s versatile -- it blends in well with the fluidity of ever-changing trends. It’s always cool to keep your stationery in a clear customizable plastic box.

You don’t have to be the guy that carries an arsenal of stationery in a pencil case bursting at its seams. All you need is a nice box to keep a few pens, maybe pencils and other small knick-knacks.

We’ve been on tumblr, seen those minimalistic frost white pencil boxes and plastic case pens. We’ve seen videos on DIY back-to-school tote bags, where cheery US youtubers tell us we can get tote bags from “the dollar store” for “a dollar or two”. In Singapore, however, these things can be quite expensive if you shop at Popular or ArtBox, but with Muji, the minimalistic japanese store, the perpetually broke school-goer can get her hipster supplies for cheap too.

Bestsellers from the stationery collection include their 0.38 and 0.5 black pens (judging by how fast their refills go out of stock), their thin lined notebooks which saw me through two years of speedy but neat note-taking (thanks to the smooth paper and thin line space forcing small penmanship), the ever-popular clear pencil cases ($6.90) and their tote bags at $2.90 with chops and stamps provided to decorate them.

Not only that, their food corner stocks the best under-the-table snacks for school, such as $1.90 marshmallows which are smooth and burst in your mouth, and crispy rice crackers that are lightly salted and extremely yummy. Muji really is every student’s budget school supply store.

Simple yet elegant

I absolutely adore Muji. It's one of my favourite brands out there for a good reason. From its concept, to the products and the service of the staff...everything is perfect.

Stepping into Muji makes me feel happy because of its minimalist interior and design. The simple colour scheme is easy on the eyes and comfortable to look at. Even though some people don't like Muji because they said it's too simple, but to me, that's where their charm lies in. The products are simple yet elegant, and are of an extremely high quality.

Even though Muji product prices are a little on the high end, but personally I still think it's worth it for the minimalist design and high quality of the products.

Muji is one of my absolute favourite places to shop. Its plainess, I believe, is one of its biggest selling factors. I'm always iffy whenever it comes to brands that insist on enlarging their logos to the point where it covers half the product. And more often than not, the logos are quite unsightly, which is very off-putting. It makes me reconsider buying their products even if the quality and original design may be nice.

When it comes to Muji, such concerns all go flying out of the window. All their products stick to the same concept: simplicity. This honestly gives off a great feeling of sophistication which I greatly adore. Muji doesn't need to compete in terms of design with other stores as its simplicity is what wins it customers. There's only a sticker with their logo on their products which you can easily tear off.

Muji also sells products of stunning quality. From their clothes to their containers, all of it meets an A-class standard in terms of quality. I especially love their notebooks. Although, some of their notebooks are often dented or scratched.

However, I have to say that their products are very pricey. It may be over the top but I guess it pays to fork out so much for quality.

Muji has been around for awhile now, but I've only recently ventured to explore it. I've heard a lot of it online, which is basically what got me curious about this. Their pricier tendencies haven't missed me so I entered the store with a prepared heart.

They come across as a mini Japanese version of IKEA, minus the relatively more affordable pricing. Their products range from bathroom utilities, to bedroom details, to kitchen ware, even to the itsy bitsy stationary. The earthy theme of the entire store gives shoppers a really comfortable and pleasant experience. This is accentuated so with staff that are readily at hand to handle your queries, yet do not probe nor intervene unnecessarily.

I personally came for their renowned acrylic organisers. On my way, my eyes caught on the plastic and wooden ranges, that were really impressive and honestly, much more affordable too. But I was blown away by the sleekness of the acrylic range. They are definitely worth the money too. The drawers I purchased were sturdy and the drawers glide on really well, without the awkward squeaky jams you expect between plastic ridges.

Their quaint range of stationary caught my attention too, and they're definitely a lot more affordable compared to Muji's other products, and are reasonably priced. I would definitely come back for these.

Basically, Muji feeds the simplistic and sophisticated side of you. And I will definitely recommend their acrylic organisers. ;)

Muji’s aesthetic is in its own league. With its clean lines and earthy tones, Muji speaks to the minimalist in people. I find myself in Muji even if I have nothing particular to buy, for the store is such a comfortable and soothing environment to be in. Muji retails daily necessities, stationery, furniture, food and clothing. A rather diverse selection means that window-shopping here can take up quite some time.

Muji is, by all means, not an avenue for cheap products but rest assured that you get what you pay for. My favourite item from Muji is the beanbag chair, which is tres comfortable!

MUJI is a brand synonymous with simple design coupled with high practicality. Step into the store and you will be greeted by a palette of neutral colors. Nothing that screams color. Just plain, basic colors that will be great to have in your everyday lifestyle. I'm sure even the most avid color lover would need some neutral hues in their life! Store is brightly lit, clean and spacious. Very comfortable to shop at!

Prices wise, I have to say that it is up to individuals to decide what is worth the steeper price tag. This is a Japanese brand and we all know that imported stuff do not come cheap. Personally, I am willing to splurge on their storage organizers as I find them way more durable and of high-quality as compared to Toyogo or other cheaper brands. Their range of storage organizers are more flexible as well. I am also willing to splurge on their MUJI house brand food section! I love the strawberry jam filled marshmallow. Soft, fluffy and pink. So cute and yummy. Highly-recommended! The noodles are worth a try as well. You can either eat it dry like the Mamee snack or cook it in hot water like your normal instant noodles. I will not spend on their stationary as I much prefer Popular when it comes to that. Overall, a store I would highly recommend! But when it comes to justifying the price tag, I would stick to saying that it differs from the needs of the various individuals, so it all depends on what you need.

I am absolutely in love with Muji, for its simple stationary and everything that they sell. When it first opened here years ago I was very into the pens that they sold because they always very find enough and it didn't spoil easily. The more I went into the shop to get stationary, I too found myself walking around a little more and looking around at the other things that they had to offer.

Muji is basically a very japanese, simplified supermarket with the basic necessities all put into one place. It is easy to find the household products, all very simply designed, or the food items and clothing. Although it does not have a very big area, it always has just enough room to hold all the items and to display everything in a neat and orderly fashion which is probably its winning strategy. The designs at muji at very standard, almost everything in basic colours with not much prints. It just makes simplicity such a wonderful thing, as it is so easily portrayed as sophisticated and elegant.

Amongst the many items that are for sale, the food items are also very authentic japanese. They might be a little pricey to have all the time but are certainly very delicious and refreshing to keep the rest of the shopping day going!
