It's freaky that these 41 products are so brilliant & yet so cheap

Sometimes, it's hard to believe that something so affordable could make such a big difference in your day-to-day life. But what if I told you that a simple $11 product could make it possible to see when you couldn't before? And what if I said that $35 could transform your old shower into a deluxe, spa-like experience? Well, the products that make those things possible are all available online — and it's freaky that these Amazon products are so brilliant and yet so cheap.

But sometimes, it makes sense. I'm well aware that the prices of various technologies — like wireless chargers and portable batteries — typically drop when they evolve. And it seems like some of these brilliant things might be inexpensive simply because they were also cheap to manufacture. But in some cases, I just don't get it; how can these prices be so low? High-quality outdoor gear, for example, usually comes with a high price for a solid reason. So why does the brilliant camping hammock on this list only cost $25? It's certainly not because anyone skimped on the quality.

Fortunately, it's not necessary to understand exactly why something is so affordable in order to enjoy it. Sure, it's freaky. But it's awesome-freaky. And I'm all about it.
