If you’ve ever lived in your own space or already own your own home, you may have already figured out that it isn’t cheap to make a home comfortable. Sure, you can find a good deal on a sofa, have gotten hand-me-downs, or have scored big on a sale, but all those purchases can rack up quite a hefty bill. We're sure that the last thing you want is to spend P2,000 on a glassware set you won’t often use but someday you may need. For quick updates, you may want a nice lamp for your living area, a decent dinner set for get-togethers with friends, or even just an indoor plant to make it homey.

What do you do when you want the comforts of home but don’t want to burn holes in your pockets? Go visit a budget store! Hard it is to believe, you can actually find great items from home décor to kitchen essentials without breaking the bank. Here, we list down just a few places you can score items to add to your space:

This is a great first place to start if you’re looking for a variety of home items. They have bathroom accessories, décor, office supplies, and great kitchenware.

They also have a good selection of storage boxes in an assortment of shapes and sizes.

My Dollar Store

Most likely you’ve heard of My Dollar Store because of their off-brand makeup selection and assortment of PX goods. What most people don’t know is My Dollar Store is actually a great place to find home items. The stocks might not be vast but it’s worth taking a peek. Here, you can find great décor like picture frames, mirrors, vases, and the like. But what you should also take a look at is the affordable home cleaning products. Don’t be skeptical of the unfamiliar brands—these items are actually good and come in bulk sizes. Why not pick up a pack of your favorite imported chocolates, while you’re at it. If you’re doing all this home shopping, you might as well get a little reward snack.

Find My Dollar Store at Greenhills Shopping Center, Market! Market!, Sta. Lucia Mall, and Alabang Town Center.

Yoyoso


We know. You might be thinking, “That’s just another Miniso/Mumuso.” But trust us, it’s not. Yoyoso is a Korean fast-fashion concept boutique that mixes different lifestyle finds in one store—with affordable prices too. That means they have great, budget items you can add to your home.

What we love about Yoyoso is the selection of pastel-colored items from storage boxes to mugs. Simply sift through the shelves and we're sure you'll agree when we say that it's hard to leave without bringing a few items to the cashier.

Find Yoyoso at Robinsons Place Gen Trias, Robinsons Place Las Pinas, Ayala Malls Vertis North, Robinsons Fuente, Ayala Malls Feliz.

Vente


If you like stores like Miniso, Mumuso, and Yoyoso, then you’re going to love Vente. Vente has branded itself much like these Asian lifestyle stores but it is actually locally grown. What sets Vente apart is, as the name suggests, all their items are P20 each. No, we’re not joking. From accessories to paper products, to an assortment of home finds, we’re sure you’ll find something here that’s well within your budget. Score nice bamboo placemats, mugs, candles, and even travel bottles all for P20 each.
