I just bought an EAR! This is my first time at a JY100 shop. The ear is great, though. I always wanted to have big ears!

I' decided not to buy anything today, but I was looking for a key holder. I hardly ever come to JY100 shops. I don't remember any real bargains, but the worst thing I ever bought was a light bulb that didn't last the night!

I just got some cleaning supplies. I shop here about once a month, or whenever I need to clean. What's the best thing I ever bought? Nothing. It's all far too cheap.

In the most expensive city in the world, the best bargains are never too far away. At your local JY100 shop you could kit out your apaato for less than the price of a Mitsukoshi melon. This week we stalk the bargain hunters and find out what deals you've found. How often do you dare to be seen there, and what's the best bargain you've ever gotten?

I just got some aloe gel from this JY100 shop. It's probably the best thing I ever bought here. What else is there? I only come to a shop like this about once a month.

I just bought some batteries. I shop here about once a week. I usually buy candy, cookies - any snacks really, but the healthier the better.
