Ways To Save Money - Razors

I am always on the lookout for new ways to save money.  Today, I’m going to give you some tips on how to save money on razors.

About a year ago, I was watching television when a commercial came on for Gillette Fusion Proglide.  The commercial mentioned that you could use the razors for a week.   I was currently using the Gillette Mach 3 Razor and using each of the cartridges for a week.  Since this was supposed to be better razor, I gave it a try as a way to save money.

Ways to Save Money – In Action

I purchased the Gillette Fusion Proglide and tested to see how long I could use the razor.  I was able to use razor for a full month and it

was still sharp.  Here are some tips to help you stretch the life of your razors.  

  • Change your blade on the first of each month.
  • You can use your cartridge for up to two months.  Take a permanent marker and write the letter of the month on each blade (side of the cartridge) to indicate when you should switch to that blade.
  • Order a six pack of blades from Amazon for a full year’s supply.  You can even set the order up on auto ship.
  • Don’t skip a day shaving.  When I skip a day shaving, I really notice that the blade is not razor sharp.  I don’t notice the
    sharpness of the blades when I shave everyday.

How Much Money I Saved

When I used the Gillette Mach 3 Razor I replaced the blades every Monday.  A 1o-count package cost about 30 dollars.  I was spending just north of $150 a year on razor blades.  Switching to the Gillette Fusion Proglide, a six pack of blades cost just under $25 on Amazon.  This delivered a savings of $125 a year.
