What can you get a “Lifetime Supply” of for less than $500?(r/AskReddit)
Razor blades. When i was in the army i got real sick of buying mach 3 cartridges, so i bought a merkur safety razor and a sampler of different razor blades. you can find 100 packs for about $16. I could get 5 days out each blade, even if i shaved every week (including while on leave, lol yeah right) thats 52 blades a year. So at ~$8 a year, $500 will buy you 62.5 years worth of blades. so if from age 17 – 80 is considered a normal lifetime’s worth of razorblade necessity, $500 ought to do ‘er.
ps i made the change about 3 years ago and ive been out of the army for almost 2, since then i have been growing a glourious freedom-beard which has drastically cut down on my razorblade usage.
TL;DR if you’re shaving with razor cartridges, you’re pissing money away
I’ve only ever used normal foam in a can type shaving cream, but apparently /r/wicked_edge is the place to go if you want to take a deep dive into the world of shaving, I’m sure they can recommend a nice mug and brush cream if you want to take it to the next level.
Since people have been asking to see my freedom-beard, after about 3 months of being a dirty civilian
