8 Funny Finds From True Value We Didn't Know We Needed

You can make movie marathons and even eating corn on the cob easier and hassle-free


Just like any other store, True Value is a treasure trove of valuable finds, home must-haves, and other items that deserve a spot in your space. While it's considered as a hardware store, it has nearly everything you need—from sour candy and beef jerky to lawn mowers, Radio Flyers, and vintage-inspired popcorn makers. All useful things, sure, but the magic is in how even less obvious choices seem so desirable. Travel-sized fondue maker? Yes, we need that. Cat-shaped flower pots? Definitely important. Here we list eight other finds that first confused, and then made it hard for us to refuse.

Squatty Potty

We'll let the brand's tagline explain things for you: "healthy colon: happy life." It's all about posture, folks.
