Shopping Finds : Muji 3-layer Bookshelf

I've always been a fan of MUJI, a Japanese retail store that carries a wide (and I really mean, WIDE) array of items from house wares to apparels, from bathroom accessories to office and school supplies. As a kid, my dad would bring my sister and I to Sogo in Hong Kong and allow us to choose our new set of school supplies from their beautiful brown notebooks to a set of colorful pens. I guess this was where my love for paper and pen began.

Since then, we would make it a point to visit a Muji branch whenever we go out of the country. From Bangkok to Singapore, we enjoyed joining through the different trinkets and food products that I love to bring home with me.


Last year, Muji finally opened its door in Manila! Located at the Bonifacio High Street, Muji is located at the 2nd level of Gap. Paul and I wasted no time and off we went to check Muji Manila out. It was perfect timing that we were fixing up our new rooms and we surely have a lot of furnishings to do.

Paul, the forever handyman, headed straight towards the rows of bookshelves and stand-alone shelves. We are always on a look out for additional storage spaces as we both agreed to keep our room tidy and definitely clutter-free. With the help of the sales clerk, he carefully got the measurements of the available shelves and called me over to make our choice. We both love the clean, sleek look of the bookshelf yet we decided to give it more time and to think it over.

Yesterday, we found ourselves back in Muji with the entire family. Once again, we headed towards the bookshelf and this time we both made the final choice to buy it. Showing it to my parents, they both agreed that it was a good choice and the best part was it was definitely a great deal!


We got the three layer slim bookcase for only Php. 1,550! That is very reasonable given that it's made in Japan somehow assuring us of top quality, light weight material. It was also very easy to assemble as it only took Paul thirty minutes to open the box, arrange the pieces inside and to successfully assemble our beautiful slim bookcase.

Sleek edges, don't you think?

Will definitely be back for more Muji great finds! I'm particularly eyeing the pretty black boots that I can wear on my upcoming trip!

Up next, a comfy TV couch. :)

Muji can be found at the Bonifacio Highstreet, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City.
