I Paid $50 For: A Squatty Potty
The argument goes something like this: humans have been squatting to poo since forever, and it wasn’t until roughly a century ago that we switched to crapping in chairs. Apparently, sit-shitting is bad news for your colon and can lead to all sorts of digestive discord. Thankfully, the good folks at Squatty Potty sell a $25 – $70 stool stool that will help you reconnect with your poo roots. Pro tip: save money and just buy ANY stool. Or go uber-paleo and use a seven-inch rock from your backyard.
Worth $50? Totes. Though I do kind of regret not springing for the $70 bamboo model. It’s so much bamboo-ier.
