OK, so, considering the fact it's 2018, what is "weird", anyway? It's a pretty of a subjective term, don't you think? Instead of pigeonholing ourselves, we decided to open up the definition a bit. These weird things to buy on Amazon won't just be weird in the "conventional" sense, got it? For example, it's not weird to buy sex toys, but, it's definitely weird to buy sex toys on Amazon — especially if your family has a shared Prime account. Disclaimer: there are no sex toys on this list, sorry.
The best part about these weird products is that they'll actually end up saving you a sh-t ton of money. Seeing as a "sh-t ton" isn't a standard measure, let's just go ahead and revise that to a lot. These products will save you a lot of freakin' money. From cosmetic procedures to criminal charges, we've got you covered.

Activated Charcoal Natural Teeth Whitening Powder
According to CostHelper the average cost of a professional teeth whitening is $127 — with costs ranging from $75 to $200. Activated Charcoal, which is non-abrasive and proven safe for enamel, is definitely a much more cost effective alternative.
Where to buy: Amazon, $14.99
Natural Self Tanner for Men
OK, we know that for some guys buying self tanner isn't that weird, but, for others? Yeah, it most definitely is. Considering spray tan packages at popular salons like Beach Bum Tanning can cost up to $125 for only four sessions, this is the way to go! Just have someone help you apply and you're golden (literally).
Where to buy: Amazon, $19.99
This varies from state to state, but in California, for example, getting a DUI could cost you anywhere from $390 to $1,000 plus penalty assessments. We're thinking a professional breathalyzer, while weird to own, will save you a lot of trouble (and money) in the long run. Don't drink and drive, y'all.
Where to buy: Amazon, $117.99
A Book On Getting A Vasectomy
If you're considering a vasectomy, it's best to read up on it first. Why are we suggesting that this will save you a bunch of money? Well, according to HuffPost as of 2013, the average cost of raising a child is $12,800 - $14,970 per child per year. Yeah, no thanks.
Where to buy: Amazon, $9.49
Giant Googly Eyes
It can be really hard to avoid eye-rolling at various people throughout the day — your parents, your significant other, your boss — just to name a few. Instead of risking being kicked out your home, broken up with, or fired, invest in a pair of these adhesive, moveable eyes. This way, you can make a giant joke of your frustration. The financial (and emotional) savings would be so substantial, we can't actually total it. We believe that's called, "priceless".
