Just wanted to say a quick hello. I started shaving with a DE about two months month ago. I thought I would save some money on Fusion carts and I'm about $800 + in razors, blades, brushes, soaps, aftershaves etc. so far...and I love it! No complaints!

Well, if you continue to save money at that rate imagine all you'll have saved in 50 years!
Yeah, most of us are saving money the same way you are!
