MANILA, Philippines – Muji, the go-to store for those who subscribe to that uncluttered Japanese aesthetic, recently did its Manila fans a favor by announcing that they were lowering their prices – because let's face it, P245 isn't easy to fork over for a pair of ankle socks that you'll probably lose in the wash in a matter of months, even if they are from Muji.

The store is slashing the prices of over 200 items, promising the same Muji goodness at a lower price.

One of those items is this oak bed frame – down to P17,000 from P23,500. The bed frame is made of solid oak wood, and includes a curved wood spring and a smaller board along the waist are to minimize pressure on the waist and the back. It can also be disassembled and reassembled, for ultimate practicality!

Muji stationery has a fanbase of its own, and understandably so. Their paper is thick enough to keep your ink from bleeding from one side to the other, and the smooth texture is a dream. A set of 5 notebooks now costs P225 from P375.
