Dave! The whole time i was wondering

Glad to see you again, Dave. You made it just in time. I don't think I could have kept it between the ditches much longer.

The whole time I was wondering, "How did he get the rest of his family to switch?"

I haven't shaved in two years but Clarke Howard claims he reuses double blade razors for months without nicking himself.

Mechanical saftey razors

Great episode. Made the switch to a double blade safety razor myself about two years ago. Found a set in my local pharmacy for twenty US dollars. Came with the handle/razor holder and about twenty blades. Two months ago was the first time I had to purchase replacement blades.

Welcome back!

Great to hear you on the audio waves again Dave!
While listening, I was wondering if you were going to say you got the rest of the family to switch. Sorry to hear, no such luck. At least you're saving a third or fourth of the previous total.

Personally I trim rather than shave, so haven't spend money on a razor in forever.
I might start again after this show though. I like the idea of the soap stick. I have not heard of that before. Sounds like it's worth a shot. I remember my Grandfather had a double ended safety razor. I'm not sure what happened to it. I'm sure his son picked it up after he passed away.

Saving money on everyday things goes a long way on the yearly totals. Great show. Good to hear you back again. I'm looking forward to hearing more, techie nor not.
