So I love everything about my Shave Den - great razor collection (with custom handles), plenty of brushes that I love using, and more (awesome) soaps than I could probably finish in my life time.  Gave up my aftershaves because I prefer to focus on colognes, and just not into pre-shave oils, post-shave balms, etc.

In short my problem is that I can't find anything I'm excited about buying! Think I have a serious case of withdrawal (don't even have any packages incoming!).  What's a guy to do?  

Literally have spent hours researching soaps to try and find one that gets me excited, but it ain't happening.  Major case of 1st world problems here, is there some kind of support group?  Smile

As said above, golf. I play probably 500-800 rounds a summer. I wish I lived in a warmer area so i could play year round.

For me, "the next" was consolidating. By downsizing I've come to understand what I really appreciate. There are a few items I regret parting with, but its also encouraged some new purchases too.

I used to love regularly receiving packages, but now my wife is happier!  Tongue

Thanks guys, probably just need to get back to my Racquetball.  Been laid-up for a few months with knee and foot problems, but slowly getting back on my feet.

Been tempted to try straights, but haven't really enjoyed the concentration necessary for the aggressive razors I've tried, so thinking that doesn't bode well for straights.

I've really consolidated down my razors and brushes already, but it just ain't going to happen with my soaps.....

Signs011  Straight razor shaving will enhance all the skills needed for shaving no matter what razor you choose to use.

The more body parts you shave, the more product you'll go through. Smile
