Some good deals.

Buy shaving razors without costing you your skin.

About a year ago I saw an advertisement for a product on TV that I’d thought I’d give a try.  What prompted my interest was that I had been spending $18 and more for replacement razor blades at the grocery store.  This gets to add up over the course of a year.  If there’s an alternative to the overly expensive, name-brand blades then I am definitely interested.

The advertisement was for The Dollar Shave Club.  What piqued my interest was the price they were charging; $6.00 for a package of four cartridges that consisted of 4 stainless steel blades.  These are similar to the ones that I have been paying $18 and more.  That’s a saving of $12 per cartridge pack.

There are also a few additional perks when you sign up with The Dollar Shave Club

  • I received a new handle with my initial order
  • I can decide if I want shipments every month of every other month.
  • You don’t have to remember to buy new razors because they are shipped automatically either monthly or every other month, depending on the time period you decide.
  • The Dollar Shave Club also offers many other products that you can include in your shipment box.
    • Pre-shave oil
    • Shave butter
    • Post-shave lotion
    • Shampoo
    • Face cleanser
    • Face moisturizer
    • Lip Balm
    • Hair Gel
    • You can also add an extra handle and cartridges.

So, if you use multi-blade razors to shave and are sick of tired of paying the high prices at the grocery stores, like I am, then check out The Dollar Shave Club.  The cartridge blades are, in my opinion, of similar quality as the ones that you buy at retail.

 

 

Christmas is just around the corner

And if you are anything like me you’ve waited until the last minute to do your shopping. Now I’ve also decide to do all of my shopping online when possible.  That saves me the aggravation of dealing with the shopping crowds, trying to find a parking spot that isn’t a major trek to get to the store’s front door, and trying to search the aisles for items, and finally not having to wait in the checkout lines.  Christmas can be stressful as it is, no point in adding to the stress.

I have a couple of favorite places online that I like to shop.  One of them is Amazon and the other is Best Buys.  I like Best Buys because they also have a brick and mortar location for those last minute items.  You may need to hurry because some online retailers have deadline dates that you have to have placed your orders by in order to make delivery before Christmas.  Amazon is great for purchasing books, movies, and music, but they also are now selling many other items.

On final note,  as with earning extra money when shopping always be on the lookout for shopping scams.  If something seems to be too good to be true…it probably is.

That’s about it for now.  If I come across any other items and deals I will make sure that I post them here.
