Men Hoarding, Going Old-School to Avoid Getting Shaved at the Register
Fancy upgrades to razors got you down? Feeling the pinch in the wallet when you need to buy cartridges? You're definitely not alone.
From the Wall Street Journal online:
"Jeff Hagan, a 43-year-old investment banker in San Francisco, doesn't need to buy another blade or razor for the next four years.
That's because last year, tired of trying to keep up with the cycle of shaving-system upgrades and price hikes, Mr. Hagan bought 100 Gillette Mach3 blades. Then he found oil that helps double the blades' lifespan.
"I'm basically investing in blade futures," Mr. Hagan remembers telling onlookers at Costco as they marveled at the pile of cartridges in his cart. "That's my hedge against getting forced to upgrade."
