That is a good idea. I'm scared to do mine then the SWMBO will know the true value of my items. LOL I gotta protect myself

No.  I don't want to have a heart attack when I finally see it so I don't keep track.

I decided out of curiosity to add it up. Not too bad, all in for about the cost of a set of golf irons, and will last year's and years. Plus the hardware from AoS (the Lions share) was a gift.

If I added up how much money I saved from going to this wet shaving thing, I'd be tempted to go out and blow the savings.

i have been wet shaving for 3 to 4 months.  and all this time i have been saying:  i love this all out.  the only thing that i don't like is when anybody says BUDGET.  Hypocrites! The fact that this is a lot less expensive than auto racing, casino gambling or art collecting does not mean that we are doing it to pocket a few cents.  My last 4 safety razors average $225 each.  Lets not talk about my straights.  Imagine, Phil sent me a 5 gram sample of Xpec shaving cream.  Try it.  You will fall in love.  It retails for $70.  And now i crave it... :-(   .....

I am not a fan of expensive price tags of badger brushes...... Wink

But as much as I like my $40-$60 high quality badger....I do appreciate the quality and build of my $300 Acca Kappa brushes. 

When I buy badger brushes, I treat it like drink cough medicine. I don't always like it initially but in the end, sometimes it is worth it.

I do have an excel sheet where I have recorded ALL costs related to this hobby since I first started almost 3 years ago.

As I am not a collector and a true minimalist at heart, it helped me keep a realistic overview of my investment and keep track of costs when trying to sell something.

However this isnt the only time I do this. I also have excel sheets related to my car and motorcycle. Basically anything with an ongoing investment over the amount I would actively carry in my wallet.

I first used a straight razor at age 13, so...probably enough to retire on.  I would really rather my Saint keep track of it, and, all of it can be waiting for me in Heaven.

I have a close idea, but I really don't consider it often. I love my gear too much to try to value it based exclusively on how much it cost me. That said, I do watch how much I'm willing to spend on individual items. Hardware gets 95% of my purchasing power.

I do keep track, but I don't pay attention.  The former is for insurance purposes, the latter is for my sanity.

I am not sure we have a consensus yet.  It looks pretty even.  Anyone else care to break the tie?
