    I just did some ciphering, knot, knot, and double knot, and I have come to a simple solution to save money!
    One thing most fellers agree on is the pain in the @ss shaving is. :-x
    The cheapest disposable razors I could find were at Walmart, $7.68 for a 12 pack. Now these don't last too long so I could get probably 3, maybe 4 shaves with 'em. So using very rough calculations, one of these packs might last me a couple months, stretching it maybe three, again just rough ciphering.
    Round off the cost of razor's and tax at say $8 every 3 months (or less) and figure that out over a year! :shock:
    That's the cost of 3 metal queen excluders right there!
    Or a bunch of drone comb frames, or pollen sub., or a bunch of #8 hardware cloth!
    Is there really anything to discuss here?
    There you have it, easy as pie, $$ in your pocket, less time getting ready in the morning, all upside! :thumbsup:
    :yahoo:

    (Female keeps not encouraged to take this advice!)
    :shock:

    You're getting very wise! You may have to trade that ball cap in for a wizard's hat!

    You forgot to factor in the cost of shaving time. How many hours does a clean-shaven maverik spend each month in order to keep his cheeks smooth as a baby's?
    At x$ an hour, think how much he is spending on his (questionable) beauty.
    How many hives could he add to his apiary with that money? :rotfl: :eek:ldtimer:

    I agree with you fully, but my wife dose not, so I will still have to spend money on razors and time shaving. She is the boss here. I can talk her into a lot of things but not this one and boy have I tryed.

    Shaving saves money?? NAH!! I bought a 3 pack of triple edge disposables 4 or 5 years ago. Still using them.

    Of course, I shave every 2 weeks, and when going some place special. After 2 weeks, my beard is about1/8 inch long.

    Geez Iddee, all this time I wondered how a fella could possibly afford 4 tractors. Now I know. With as little as you have to shave, and all the money you save on razors and shaving cream, you must just be rolling in it ($$$) :lol:

    Crofter, hold off shaving a bit longer and you'll be able to wear your beard in a pony.

    well im in that group with IDDEE cant grow much of a beard. Been told its the indian heritage in our family. Not sure about that. Seams like most white people claim to have some indian ancestry but most cant confirm it. If I could grow a beard like Perry I would have one. I might add you may be able to save money instead of razors you might look into a small electric powered weed eater and a trusted friend to run it. :drinks: :D :thumbsup:

    Hey Crofter, how do you get your beard to grow dark like that? What am I doing wrong? :roll:

    Rat, Iddee probably doesn't have to shave that much because wiskers are afraid to grow on his face. He's so tough I heard he gave up razors and just uses and old lawn mower blade now. :shock:
    P.S. - I've never heard of a Hairy Rat so you must be in good company! :thumbsup:

    Grandma Moss may have something to do with it. Yes, Rat, I can trace my Indian blood.
