I started giving myself $100.00 a week to buy groceries and the last 2 weeks we made it through.  SO proud of myself!  I tried some new recipes and some new techniques and am really pleased with how it’s going.  Now tomorrow, is shopping day.

Do you want to know what’s on my list of things to get?


Razors are SO freaking expensive that I don’t want to buy them.  At my local grocery store, they are $10.99 for a 4-pack of my Venus Razor blades.  that’s more than $2.50 each.


Why are razors so expensive?  I really don’t get it?

Bob’s razors run $18-20 a pack.


I would have to get at least eight razors to make it through the next 2 weeks.  that’s more than $20.00 out of my $200.00 budget.  Wasted.  I could spend $20.00 on so many better things.  Like chocolate ice cream or chicken.  Things that are necessary to survive.

I don’t need razors.

Heck, I’m thinking of following in Golden Globe winner Mo’Nique’s footsteps.  She doesn’t waste her money on razors and she’s a beautiful award winning actress.

What do you think?

I don’t know if I could pull it off.

But really, in all honesty, how do you shave your legs when you are on a budget?  Is there a secret shopping place for razors that I don’t know about?  Do all thrifty gals use electric razors instead?  I’ve never really liked the results of an electric shave, but I guess at this point maybe it’s worth trying.  I could buy a decent electric shaver for the same freaking price as 2 packs of Venus.  What’s a wannabe thrifty gal to do?
