As I snagged a bag of my usual pastel pink, purple and “mint” razors a few months ago, it suddenly occurred to me that I was paying a few more dollars per bag for my razors to be girly looking.
So I started buying men’s razors.
That didn’t solve another problem of mine. When I was taking extended work trips (where I was hopping from city to city without going home), the razors were taking up a lot of room in my carry-on.
I don’t like using dull blades (and perhaps am a little OCD with it) but having multiple handled razors were cluttering my bag and I didn’t want to upgrade to expensive razors with changeable blades.
Basically, this is a subscription club for razor blades. You buy a handle for a few bucks, and they send you the blades once a month. There are three types: two blades are $1 per month, three blades are $6 per month, and a gazillion blades is $9 per month. Shipping runs about $2.
I use the $1 a month on the every other month plan, so I pay $18 a year for blades.
Now I have a handle permanently in my carry-on, along with a pack of blades. I have the same set at home. When I use up some of the blades in my carry on, I just swap it with a full pack, so I never run low.
Sure, it’s not pink. But it’s cheap. And it works just as well as the more expensive razors I’d been using.
Anyone else try it?
