Saving money is never a bad idea — however, it's not always easy to resist whipping out your credit card whenever you see a hot deal. (What can I say? I'm a sucker for bargains.) That includes the out-of-the-ordinary items available online, too, because most Amazon products are so weird that they're brilliant. Tons of them are also cheap, so don't worry about accidentally splurging.

What do I mean by "cheap"? Ideally, whatever I'm looking at is less than $30. And when I say "weird," I'm talking about the things you'd never imagine using day to day, like a spiky silicone shampoo brush that gives you a message while you clean your hair. It's weird, but it's brilliant. There's even a flexible plunger that makes it easier to un-clog a toilet. How has someone never thought of that before? Oh, and don't get me started on the ice maker that turns into an ice bucket; it's pure genius.

Has my spending strategy worked so far? As long as you stick with the weird-but-brilliant Amazon products, you'll never be disappointed. Keep scrolling for my go-to picks.
