The Dollar Shaving Club

Have you heard of The Dollar Shave Club?  (this is not a paid post!)




I hadn't. Until The Husband introduced it to me. To put it mildly my husband has a "thing" against razors. He is always complaining about how expensive they are.  Until he found The Dollar Shave Club. 



Here is a little question and answer session I had with The Husband. 

Me: Explain, dear Husband, what is your beef with shaving razors?


The Husband: I've been using the same brand of razors for years. So long I can't even put a number on it. Replacement blades costs over $3 each and  I just can't seem to buy them anymore. I guess I'm getting cheap in my advanced age. I'd use the same blades for weeks, until it was rusted and pulling the whiskers out of my chin. Oh, and I HATE disposable razors. They all suck.




Me: How did you hear about The Dollar Shaving Club?


The Husband: I heard about the Dollar Shave Club though a friend at work. He's extremely risk adverse and cheaper than me. He knew I have this pet peeve about expensive razor blades. He figured I'd join the Dollar Shave Club and he could get an honest review once I started using the product.


 

Me: How long have you been a member of The Dollar Shaving Club?

The Husband:  I joined the Dollar Shave Club a little over three months ago.



Me: Are you pleased with their product?


The Husband:  I'm very happy with these razors. As stated above, I used the same razor for years. That being said, it took a little time to get used to the handle and they way the blade pivots on the head. By a little time, I mean three weeks or so. The handle has a little heft to it and feels good in the hand. It feels quality, like it'll last a long time. I'm equally as pleased with the razors. They are very sharp right out of the box, I mean there's not much that's better than running a brand new razor blade over your chin whiskers! And at a little over a buck a blade, I can afford to change my blades more often.



Me:Any last thoughts or comments you would like to express?


The Husband: Addition comments? Well, my buddy asked me how I liked the razors, he's now a Dollar Shave Club member as well as another friend that over heard out conversation about the Dollar Shave Club. The Club gave me a little account credit for the referrals which was really cool. I put that credit towards some One Wipe Charlies. I ordered three packages. One for myself and two for Christmas gifts. I mean who doesn't deserve to have their backsides to be minty fresh for the holidays?


The Dollar Shave Club cost $6.00 a month. The first month you get a razor handle and 4 blades. Every month after that you get 4 blades. That is $1.25 per blade. They also have twin blades and in case you need more, they have an eight blade deal as well.  The super cool thing; there is no commitment  You can cancel this membership at any time and walk away. I love their humor. Each package comes with a funny card. Their video's make me laugh. 

The Boy is now shaving so I purchased him a membership. The holiday's are right around the corner. Do you have a shaver in your life that might appreciate The Dollar Shave Club?  If so, use the link below and check it out!

  1. That sounds awesome! I feel his pain about expense and shaving in general, but being female it is a bit of a faux pas to be running around looking like Chewbacca, or in my case, since I am so short and ewok! I just might have to look into this!

My Weekend Project: A PVC Camping Lamp Post and Flag Holder

I have seen a few of these around campsites and I knew I would like to have one. The only problem that I had is The Husband.

He already thinks we drag too much stuff with us when we go camping and if I had told him my desire to have a PVC Camping Light Pole he would have shut it down quickly!

So, that leaves a girl with only one choice: Figure out how to do it by herself.

I did some internet searching and found a few road maps on RV forums. They seemed easy enough!

I visited the local hardware store for the supplies:

An exterior post lantern light2 inch PVC pipe (I used 5 feet but had to purchase a 10 foot piece)A 3 inch toilet flangeA 3 inch to 2 inch ReducerPVC GlueA 12 foot electric cord kit2 - 3/4 inch PVC Caps I also used a few supplies we already had on hand:







White Spray Paint






3 1/2 foot - 3/4 inch PVC PipeDrill Bits (1 inch and 1/2 inch)Tent Stakes

The first step was preparing the lantern light. I could only find black in the store and I knew I wanted all white. I covered the gla…

Camping Activity: Wood Chip Necklaces

My worry in taking a wide range of kids camping is that the younger kids would be happy just playing together but the older ones, the one's in that awkward pre-teen/teen age, would think everything was so uncool they would just sit around and mope. So I designed a few activities that would hopefully get them up, participating, and moving.

 I came home from work a few weeks before the Family Camp-out and found my neighbors had trimmed their tree limbs and piled the mess in my yard. I refrained from getting angry. Over a nice dinner, I asked The Husband to help me with a little project.

He looked at me in disgust. I was pulling him away from ESPN to help with an unnecessary camping craft.


 I admit I did some begging. In the end, The Husband borrowed his father's chainsaw and decided to help me cut medallions out of a limb.  His mood started changing, quickly.{I then begged him to let me try my hand at the chainsaw, but he would not let budge on that one. I had to settle for hol…

Hand Made Gifts: Tutu Ornaments

My  Short Chic is turning into a little dancer. To thank the dance teachers for their help, we decided to make them a little gift for Christmas. A tutu ornament.

Supplies needed:

Tulle. I selected black, white and hot pink. The pink and white both have glitter {I have been walking around for the past four days with glitter all over me!}. Glass Ornaments that coordinate with your tulle. Some kind of string {I used stretch magic}. And some super glue.

Step 1: Cut  the tulle. 


I learned, from trial and error, that my cell phone was roughly the right size. So, I used it as a template for cutting the tulle.  
Step 2: Tie the tulle to the string.

Using a simple slip knot, tie the tulle onto the string {or Stretch Magic}. I think I used about 40 loops per ornament.
Step 3:  Adhere it to the Ornament.
I do not have a photo of this step. But simply, you take some super glue and glue the tutu ring to the ornament. 
FINISHED!  Once the glue is dried, you are finished. {Well except the wrapping!} I …
