A few weeks ago, I made the best decision possible for my wallet (at least, when it comes to my beauty maintenance routine anyway!) and I have to share it with you people because sharing is caring and who doesn’t like to save a few bucks here and there right?
In case you haven’t realized, women’s hygiene products are damn expensive. Women get ripped off every chance the personal care industry gets and it’s soooo fruustttrratttinggg. I was legit just walking down the aisle of my local Target trying to pick up some basics when I realized I needed a new razor.
K cool, no big deal.
I head on over to the shaving section and dude.
Did you know that a single razor costs upwards of like ten bucks?
No kidding! Clearly it’s been awhile since I’ve been PC shopping because I am a huge proponent of hitting up the store known as “Mom’s Bathroom/Pantry/Closet” so this really shocked the hell out of me.
I refused to pay for it, clearly. So I left Target mostly empty-handed and hit up the Internet. I was actually heading to Amazon just to see if I could grab a bulk pack of razors when I stumbled across The Dollar Shave Club website and knew that I hit paydirt.
Dollar Shave Club is a monthly subscription service that ships razors and cartridges right to your doorstep for like. A dollar. Not kidding! You can choose what kind of razor blade you like, and your first box comes with a handle. Technically, this subscription is for guys but what the hell, why not take advantage so long as you’re careful while using the blades?
So yeah, your first month’s box is $1 and includes a handle, a full pack of cartridges, and free shipping. Then every month after that, you can choose what cartridges you want (priced at either $3, $6, or $9 based on how many blades ya like) and boom. That’s all she wrote. Shaving is a dream, and you never have to overpay for razors again.
Cancelling is totally painless (ha) and they have a money back guarantee so why not give it a shot? If you want to try the service out, feel free to use my link here and start saving!
