and her not particularly frugal lawyer husband.
Tonight, we went to Smith's. Let's get the nasty part out of the way first. The total was $372. Our pantry is stocked. Nothing makes me happier than when generic shredded wheat goes on sale. I have at least forty boxes of whole wheat pasta, more sardines than I care to think about (not mine, not the nudists') and the gifts for hubby's firm's Christmas party are taken care of and they are AWESOME and THEMED. (Take that challenge Hubby's coworkers!!! You cannot beat these gifts!!!!!)
Anyway. The point of this post is quite simple. Brian needed razor blades. Buying razor blades gives me fiscal indigestion. WHY ARE THEY SO EXPENSIVE??? While hubby was looking at tea (his new obsession), I wandered to the shampoo area of the organic aisles. NEW ITEM sign. Recycline razors and blades. I have their toothbrush and am loving it. It's made from yogurt cups and other things that are recycled. And holy crap, it was sooooooo much cheaper than his fifty blade fusion razors. I spent the remainder of his tea browsing time figuring out how to convince him to switch.
It honestly wasn't that hard. I explained the product and showed him. He said okay. I got the razor ($5.99) and refill blades ($5.99) for cheaper than a four pack of those stupid fusion blades ($4,000,000.00). It's still orange.
Then, saints be praised, he asked me what kind of shaving cream I would recommend. ANOTHER NEW ITEM SIGN. They had the Kiss My Face shaving cream that Robin recommended in moisturizing, unscented man version. In plastic packaging that can be recycled. He wanted that too.
Now, Brian would want me to specify that he is not green. He would say he is the opposite of green, which is red, green's complimentary color. But yay. That razor is good for the earth and good for my wallet. If I ever use the last of my stupid venus razor blades, I will buy my own. (We cannot share. It will not work.) Oh, the savings…
