#7 Shaving cream the old-fashion way

This is again one of my husband's ideas. He actually really wanted to go the whole way and shave with a straight razor as well as use the old fashioned type of shaving cream, but found he couldn't get the razor sharp enough. But the shaving cream is a big success. It's inexpensive, lasts a long long time, and he says it works just as well as the regular foam or gel. He even picked up his own "DAD" mug at a thrift store that fits the disk perfectly. It looks like round soap and yes, it can be purchased just about anywhere. Ours came from Fred Meyer, including the brush. Do you realize that when you are buying shaving cream, mostly what you are paying for is the container and the water?
Pros: Lasts a long time, inexpensive, no containers to dispose of, and works great!
Cons: Not as transportable as regular shaving cream for traveling purposes.

My dad still shaves this way; I think it is kind of cool. Aaron says he will try it if I buy him "one of those disc things" :)
