I bought a few Fire Extinguisher, price quite cheap rm15-20 only, outside sell at least rm50-60 for small cans, but very laku always sold out.

I also bought a cheap USB fan to blow my external HDD when doing big transfers, can fold flat somemore, but abit noisy, but rm5.

I also bought some small mirrors for rm2.50, quite handy for underskirt views.

I also bought a compass.

Then i bought the hot glue refill after buying the glue gun from Daiso.

I also bought a double sided screwdriver.

The round batteries also worth it whole strip for under rm5.

Also bought a big Tote bag for rm6.50.

Basically if you looking for sub rm5 small items Mr. DIY is the place.


I say overall their quality is pretty much China quality, but small kids want to buy things with cute cartoons printed on them got many things, their books, mirrors, bags all have cute cartoon animals, quality & printing quite good also. can beat Parkson stationary quality. I bought a incar power port expansion 3+1USB for rm5.50, dunno how good it's super cheap.

i buy their Lightbulb, much cheaper than Phillips.

QUOTE(Power Tools Guy @ May 2 2014, 12:12 PM)
daiso can undercut market because they want volume, different strategy from acehardware. mrdiy is following normal retail strategy, import then rebrand to own brand, place next to big name product, but margin is much higher than big name brand

the most common thing a screwdriver can go bad is the head size is not accurate so when you turn you end up drilling the screw, happened to one set of my screwdrivers not bought from Mr.DIY, i think it's more than rm5.



QUOTE(TOROBO @ Oct 28 2014, 06:18 PM)
a bad screwdriver will ruin the screw head.
please get a good screwdriver, it will save your time and effort.

Pearl Point just opened a new outlet, much easier to shop as space is wider & less Messi.

Near Popular.

The DIY Brand Spray Paint sucks. It's cheap rm5.99, but i bought the White color, the paint is so thin after 4-5 layers of spray on Red object it still looks pink.

Also the paint is so thin that any micro scratch will still show up after a thick spray because the paint is so diluted it's just thinner.

If you looking for really thin coat this is good, otherwise buy other brands.
