    31 Practical Things From Walmart You’ll Probably End Up Using Once A Week

    From a portable Instant Pot from The Pioneer Woman to a heated throw, you're destined to use these practical products ~at least~ once a week.

    1. A video doorbell with high quality HD video, advanced motion detection and customizable motion zones so you can keep your home safe at all times. It even allows you to speak and listen to guests (and reviewers love that it has 72 hours of free storage).
