It takes a lot for a product to go viral. Not only does it have to be genuinely useful (my pet rock provides untold amounts of brilliant —albeit silent — emotional support), but it also has to have its quirks. Luckily, there are tons of viral products available on Amazon to choose from.

And while you're scouring through some of the absolute best products on Amazon trying to find a great deal, you might learn a little something about yourself along the way. I, for one, have found out that it's almost impossible for me to pass up a pack of 24-karat gold under-eye masks that help get rid of my stubborn dark circles. I've also discovered that my bank account's overdraft fee is a whopping $45. But does the joy of buying a set of collapsible storage bowls outweigh the dread of checking my bank account at the end of the month?

Sadly, I've yet to figure that one out. So until my inner impulse shopper comes face-to-face with my constant state of financial denial, it's probably best that we both stick to what we know: the sky is blue, green means go, and sometimes the best products are the quirky ones — you just have to be willing to take a chance.
