According to one savvy reader of The Consumerist, if fellows crunch the numbers and start shaving old school, they can rack up quite a savings. Hundreds of dollars a year, in fact. Many guys marvel at the appalling cost of cartridges that seem calculatingly designed for planned obsolescence.
There are hobbyist sites devoted to the discussion and manufacture of retro hardware, soaps, and brushes.
So in addition to the financial savings, you get to join the fraternity of every guy you’ve seen in a Western, war movie, or Mad Men’s Don Draper.
I’m interested in both factors, but think I may go through more than $160 a year in bandaids.
