Looking for advice or a group rec - grocery shopping, saving money, and a shaving my legs :-)

So, DH and I have decided we need to cut our spending, and we aren't generally big spenders anyway.

We're hoping to shave a little off our grocery budget, but because of my health we HAVE to keep our diet low sodium - which limits the sorts of things we can change for savings.

But.  I realized my razor blades are really expensive :-)  Anyone want to recommend one of the less expensive or maybe disposable razors?  I've been using the Intuition and the blades are like $3 each!!!

Any other great ideas for money savings, or a group that focuses on this without a bunch of surveys and other money-making schemes (which always seem to be a waste of time to me - but I also have a part-time job at home, so maybe that's why!)?

i think my razor is a men's disposable....

it's like the Matrix 3 or something like that, and the blades can be the store brand (at least around here) so the original pack of the handle and 2 or 3 blades was like $5

the Intuition works pretty well, but I wouldn't spend that much on the refills. i got the original one I had free when i started college

You should try typing in your comp. coupons. I know that alot of web sights will send you coupon for free that could help a pocket book.

Do you do rebates?  Sometimes Rite Aid or Walgreens has shavers on sale and a rebate.  You can also make some extra money on Cashcrate. I've doing Cashcrate since last November. Hope this helps you.  Freida
