My husband Charlie has been talking nonstop about how much money we are saving now that he isn't buying razor blades any more. I thought I should give him the chance to share his findings with the rest of you. And now I hand it over to him.

So about three months ago I came across this article about shaving, and the ridiculous high price of razor blades. The article suggested an easy way to keep razor blades sharp for months on end using a piece of denim. I was incredulous. I figured razor blades are expensive for a reason. And they wear out quick. And this denim thing seemed like a hobo remedy that would not work. Turns out it does. I’ve been using the same blade since August 1 and it’s still going strong. Just do this:
- Get a piece of denim a foot long, give or take.
- Hold the blade down against the denim and push it away from you 20 times.
- Push the blade against the denim another 20 times after you finish.
- Quit buying razor blades.
