Shaving Supplies

Those of you who read my blog found out that in January I started shaving with a “old fashioned” razor, while I started using shaving soap and a brush.  If you missed that post, just scroll down to February 10th, and you’ll find it.

This is an update to that post.  In the original post, I stated that I could buy blades for $1.29 for five blades on Amazon, or I could go to my local store and buy them for $3.29.  Since then I have checked at other stores.  Neither my local Wal Mart nor my local Meijer carries double edged razor blades. At all.  I was able to find them at Marsh Supermarket (it’s like Hy Vee for you Iowa friends:  the expensive grocery store).   I also found them at CVS and Walgreens drug stores.  CVS had them for $6 for 10 blades, and Walgreens had them “on sale” for $7 for 10 blades.   Never mind.

I don't know what the Arabic or other languages say, but who cares, right?

I went back to because my one blade that I started using last month is beginning to get a little dull.  I found a box of 100 double edged razor blades for $11.72, and I bought it.  Each blade should last me about a month (two weeks per side), so this box should last me until August of 2022, at an annual shaving cost of $1.40 plus whatever the shaving soap costs.  So I guess I won’t be able to go without shaving and use the excuse “I couldn’t afford to buy more razors.”
