I have been at this old-school wetshaving for less than one year. Half-way through I knew I had an AD problem, but just couldn't stop myself. Inspired by the 2010 Shave Purchase Sabbatical thread I vowed to try just going through 2010. I promptly fell off the wagon, that week, if I recall.

But now with 30-40 creams and soaps, half as many after shaves, plenty of blades, and about 10 brushes (depending what you consider "in rotation"), I'm ready to give it another go.

How about you? Are you ready to commit? There is strength in numbers! We can support each other! Post here and tell the forum that you can show some gentlemanly restraint, and see if you can't actually finish some product. List any exceptions you are allowing yourself, but stick to the plan.

If you cave-in, report back and let us know what happened. However, it might be best to keep pictures limited to The Score forum, as brush/soap/cream/AS porn might be bad for morale.

My exceptions
  • Rooney Heritage--If I get a can't-pass-up deal, I might have to take it.
  • Shavemac D01 two-band--I'm not sure I really want one, but I might.
  • Group buys--There's been some talk about different things, and if one I like materializes, I'm treating myself.


Who's with me?
