I Joined the Dollar Shave Club

If there’s one thing I love, it’s discovering a way to make something in my life just a little more convenient and simple. Add to that a way to save a little bit of money, and I’m sold!

I recently started a subscription with the Dollar Shave Club, and I love it. If you are looking for a way to save money on blades and never having to run out, this is a great option. You choose which level of subscription you want based on what of blade you want and how frequently you need them, and let them handle the rest from there. The blades are priced right and having them shipped straight to your mailbox is super convenient.

I currently use the Humble Twin blade. I don’t really need anything more than that since the only shaving I do is a weekly trimming beneath my beard. And for that, these blades are perfect. Quality wise, they are your standard twin blade razors, nothing fancy. They seem to last as long as any other name brand twin blade razor that I’ve used.

Because of my limited need for shaving, I only pay $1 plus $2 shipping every two months and I get 5 blades in my mailbox every two months. So for $18 per year, I stay readily stocked with razors and never have to worry about buying new blades or running out. Super easy. I love super easy. I also love their clever video, featured below.

Wake Up with Clocky or Tocky

If you are anything like me, getting out of bed early in the morning can be a struggle. For mornings that I MUST get up early, I usually set my phone somewhere that requires me to get out of bed to turn the alarm off. Otherwise, I will continue to just hit snooze.

Nanda Home has created some really cool alarm clocks, the Clocky and the Tocky, that force you to get out of bed in order to turn them off. When it’s time for you to wake up, these clocks sound the alarm and then take off rolling, off of your side table and somewhere away from you. The perfect gadget for folks like me!

I like the simple design of the Tocky, myself. Check out the video below and visit Nanda Home’s website to see more.
