So last night I was sitting around dusting "my den" and of course that requires opening / smelling the various scents one has when I just started looking at everything.

I have ~700 blades ... that's a good number of shaves
Judging by the lifespan of vintage Gillettes I have a milleniums worth of razors.
I have more than a lifetime's worth of wonderful brushes.
I have a stockpile of soaps and creams to last at least a decade if not more.
I have a 2-3 year supply of aftershave products.
In short, when Armageddon comes, I'll certainly look good.

Then I started thinking .... you know, while it's still available I should order another bottle of Floid Blue and a couple more tubs of P.160 as I love them both. Even though I have no real need for them.

That's when it hit me ...... I finally understand my ex-wife's obsession with shoes.

Haha, that's funny timing. I was doing the same this morning. I just received an injector yesterday, so what did I do but get a list ready for another order this afternoon.
Two more razors, two more tubs of soap, some more blades. I don't need any of it, but hey, I haven't tried them yet.
It's like my wife's obsession with purses!
I also started working on my Christmas list Biggrin

Yep, been there. First time she tried to say that I am obsessed and will never need more then 1 brush and 1 razor, I walked over to her closet and asked if she is really going to need 168 pairs of shoes...

It's amazing how quickly shaving gear piles up.

So many great choices, so few decades of wet shaving.

I use my wife's 68 pair of Birkenstock shoes and 14 Vera Bradley purses against her.
