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

Shares

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.

GONESH Aroma USB

A mini diffuser you can bring wherever you go because there's no reason to subject your nose to anything other than the soothing scent of vanilla cream when you're in front of your computer.

Beverage Opener Easy Open

From pull-tabs to twist-offs to pop-tops, there's always someone who could always use a little help. So here's help for that pick-up strategy.

Magnetic Lid Lifter

Because these hands don't touch tin.

Corn Desilker

How many times have you found yourself enjoying a grilled corn on the cob when suddenly corn silk gets in the way? Never again.

Baggy Opener Hands-Free Holder

You may scoff at this, but talk to us when you're struggling to pour leftovers into Ziploc bags. What's more, we've discovered an even more fun use for it: hands-free bag of chips holder for a movie marathon.

Squatty Potty

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

Kinkajou Bottle Cutter (with free separation ties)

Have fun reusing your bottles and turning them into glasses.

Prepworks Can Colander

One more thing to wash, in case you don't have enough.
