A few weeks ago I decided to try to grow a beard.
There were so many good reasons to grow a beard. It makes me look older. It’s manly. It keeps my face warm. I don’t have to pay for razors.
And there was one good reason to get rid of it. A beard just isn’t comfortable.
I’ve actually gotten the idea to grow a beard multiple times, but I can never do it because beards are just so itchy and uncomfortable. Plus Tag doesn’t like kissing me when I have a beard so that’s pretty much the nail in the coffin.
The problem is I’m always shaving with dull old razors because I don’t want to spend the money to buy a new set of razors. They are too dang expensive. Or at least they were. Enter the Dollar Shave Club.
$1 (+$2 s&h) Razors from the Dollar Shave Club
You may have heard of the Dollar Shave Club. They send you razors straight to your door every month, include a free handle for the razors, and they cost either $1 (plust $2 shipping and handling), $6 or $9 (free shipping and handling) depending on how comfortable you like your shave.
And they have this amazing video:
I’m a huge fan of products that make shaving easier and/or less expensive. The best $10 I’ve ever spent was on a shaving mirror for my shower, and now combined with the Dollar Shave Club my facial hair doesn’t have a chance!
The Dollar Shave Club solves all of the following problems:
- Razors are affordable and come with a free handle.
- 4 or 5 razors are shipped directly to your house every month free of charge for the 4x and Executive, or it costs $2 for the basic razor.
- You never have to decide between buying more razors or having an uncomfortable shave.
I’ve always said when you work hard for your money that it’s important to spend that money on things that make you happier and make your life better. And if you’re a guy there’s a good chance you’re buying razors anyway that cost about twice as much as you can get from the Dollar Shave Club.
I used to use the Gillette Fusion, which costs $16 for a pack of 4 and I have to go to the store to get it. I can get the Executive from Dollar Shave Club for just $9 a month (a pack of 4) delivered to my house.
Finally, if you’re like me and don’t have to shave every day, you can sign up for a few months. After 5 months you’ll have stock piled 20 razors. That could very well last me 1-2 years without wearing them out. You can cancel your subscription at any time with no penalty, so there’s really nothing to lose.
Plus their video is still just awesome.
