Kmart, what a place. Whether you're on the hunt for a new toaster, cheap festival shoes, or an entire house worth of furniture (costing less than $300), it's never let you down. I mean, I don't use the word 'lifechanging' very often but, gotta give props where props are due. Like, what even was life before Kmart?

If you can identify with all of these #feels, we've rounded up a list of other things you can probably relate to. Here are 23 things you only understand if you're completely, utterly and hopelessly OBSESSED with the discount department store.

1. You always gotta bring a car to Kmart, ‘cos you tried catching public transport once and ended up taking a steamer home on the bus like a total pov.
