I have written in a previous post or two that I am an Amazon Associate on Amazon. The Amazon Associates Program is the leading selling program on the Internet, with hundreds of thousands of members. Very often, and especially during the recent holiday shopping season, people purchase some, uh, ‘random’ items on Amazon through my special links. When someone sees a special link they can click on it and it takes them to the site and they take along with them a shopping tracking code that tells the site I sent them. Then the special link tells the website to send me a small commission. The shopper doesn’t pay any higher of a price for the item and I do not even know who the shopper was. Although I do know the item the shopper purchased but all the other details are hidden from me. Some people have purchased some wild things while shopping on Amazon and sometimes I think they are finding the craziest stuff to buy just so I’ll write about it and give them a sort of ‘shout out’ as the kids say. This month though there has been nothing too crazy. None-the-less I figured I would share them with you.

Ok, then. Here we go…
Interesting stuff people buy while shopping on Amazon part 5
Leading off our list today is:
Squatty Potty® Toilet Stool, 7 Inch- The Original – Made in U.S.A.
The Squatty Potty is a wonderful health aid for the entire family. The Squatty Potty helps you to eliminate faster and more complete by putting your body into a natural squatting position over your own toilet. Using the Squatty Potty during elimination will un-kink your rectum taking your body from a continent mode to an elimination mode. This will speed up the elimination process therefore reducing the risk of toxic build up of fecal matter left in your colon. Using the squatty potty for elimination will reduce straining and decreases the pressure in the anal and rectal veins. The reduction of straining will help to heal and prevent hemorrhoids. It will also reduce the risk of bowel herniation and other damage to the lower digestive tract. The Squatty Potty is attractive and will discretely tuck under your toilet bowl when not in use. Its designed with a forward slant to ergonomically align the body for a comfortable and complete elimination. Children love the Squatty Potty. It is an excellent toilet training aid. It provides them with a place to support their feet which helps to remove the fear of falling. They also don’t have a need to hold onto the dirty toilet seat for balance. The White Plastic Squatty Potty is very durable, and easy to clean. Made of durable hard Polyurethane plastic. It is 7 3/4″ high at the back and has a slight forward slope to 6 3/4″ in the front. The Squatty potty is not a stepping stool and should only be used around the base of your toilet. The size you order depends upon your flexibility and size of your toilet. If your toilet is 14″-15″, from the floor to the rim of the toilet seat, or shorter you will want the 7″ to fit properly under the toilet. If your toilet is 15 1/2″ or taller and your are fairly limber then the 9″ should work good for you. If you are not happy with the squatty potty you can send it back for a refund (shipping not included in refund)
