One of life’s great unsolvable mysteries—right up there with how pollination works—is why razor blades cost so much money. I often consider becoming a body-hair-loving hippie, and then my legs get stubbly and I chuck the idea. Still; why so much for razors?
The average cost of replacement triple blades at my local grocery store is around $3/blade. As my husband is perpetually in need of refills (possibly because when he tries to buy them at regular price I begin squawking about starving children in Africa and the indignity of being a bargain blogger and having a spouse who overpays for razor blades), this morning I was looking around… and discovered that Amazon has Mach3 cartridges on sale, 12 blades for around $16. That’s about as cheap as I’ve seen ’em without working a coupon and a sale together.
And as long as I was finding those, I looked for me, too—Venus refills are down to $10.50 for 8. Both are Super Saver Shipping eligible, so I got one of each and they shipped together for free.
Maybe someday I’ll go au naturale, but until then, I’m stocking up when the getting’s good.
