Great Value on Lysol Disinfecting Wipes at Costco

July 29th, 2014 by Kimberly · 4 Comments

I love the convenience of the cleaning wipes and have been using them for years.  Even with the great Kirkland Signature Microfiber Cloths and their excellent cleaning abilities, sometimes you just can’t beat the convenience of a wipe.  I especially like the wipes for things like kitchen countertops and anything in the bathroom.  The only wipes that I think never seem to work well are the ones for mirrors because they just end up leaving the mirror streaky it seems.  But for disinfecting and cleaning, I think the wipes are great and everyone should have some in their cleaning supplies.

Lysol Disinfecting Wipes at Costco

Lysol Disinfecting Wipes at Costco

Costco has recently started carrying Lysol Disinfecting Wipes in a pack which contains six canisters with 80 wipes each or 480 wipes in total.  In the pack you get two scents, lemon and lime blossom and ocean fresh, both of which smell really nice.   Of course, the big selling point for the Lysol Disinfecting Wipes is that they get rid of  germs, not just dirt.  These handy wipes can kill 99.9% of viruses and bacteria for super disinfecting.  This is what makes them ideal for kitchens and bathrooms, which are certainly the two grubbiest areas in a home.  And once the kids start back to school, you will definitely want to keep the disinfecting wipes around to avoid those germs spreading throughout the family like the plague.  If you use the wipes on hard, non-porous surfaces you can kill such school-year favourites like as  Influenza A (flu) and Streptococcus pyogenes (Strep).  Of course, you can also rid your surfaces of Escherichia coli O157:H7 (E. coli), Salmonella enterica (Salmonella), and Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).  What more could you ask for in a cleaning wipe?  Oh yeah, they can also get rid of 95% of allergens like pet dander, dust mites, and pollen.  How great is that?  You can keep things germ and allergen free with one wipe.

I am a fan of the Lysol wipes because they are really thick; they seem much thicker than other wipes.  The thickness of the wipes means they can stand up to harder jobs that need a bit more scrubbing action, like stove top areas.  Plus, they are actually able to be moist enough to clean.  There’s nothing worse than a wipe that isn’t actually moist enough with cleaning product to get the job done, right?  The Lysol wipes seem to have a good amount of cleaning product on them so that they are moist enough to do the job but not dripping and making even more mess for you to have to clean up.

I think Lysol wipes are essential for bathroom and kitchen cleaning at home, but there are a ton of different way to use them to keep your stuff clean and you free from germs too.  I think all school classrooms should have these on hand to keep desks and  pretty much anything that is a hard surface disinfected, like computer keyboards, for instance.  Also, these are great to keep in your desk at work for your desktop but also for your phone.  My mom used to work in a place where she wasn’t the only one that used her phone, so she always had wipes to clean off the whole phone, from the dial pad to the headset.  I think these also work well to keep your steering wheel in your car clean too during cold and flu season.

You can buy these wipes at a lot of different places, but Costco offers really great prices on these.  Here’s a little comparison of prices between Amazon, Walmart and Costco so that you can see what a bargain these are everyday at Costco.

  • Amazon:  Lysol Disinfecting Wipes 80 wipe x 3 pack (240 Wipes); best value pack available on Amazon
    • $9.97/pack OR $0.041/wipe
  • Walmart:  Lysol Disinfecting Wipes 80 wipe x 3 pack (240 Wipes); best value pack available at Walmart online and in stores
    • $9.97/pack OR $0.041/wipe
  •  Costco:  Lysol Disinfecting Wipes 80 wipe x 6 pack (480 Wipes)
    • In Warehouse: $13.59/pack OR $0.028/wipe
    • Online (with shipping):  $17.99/pack OR $0.037/wipe

That makes it pretty easy to see that even with shipping costs included you are saving $0.004 per wipe when you get your Lysol wipes from Costco.com, which isn’t huge but is still a 9% savings and all of those little bits of saving add up.  But the savings is best of course if you go to an actual Costco location to get your wipes because then you are saving $0.013 per wipe!  That’s a 31% savings over Amazon or Walmart.  Since saving a penny per wipe might not sound that impressive, if you do the math that means that you are saving $6.24 per pack of 480 wipes at Costco.  I actually had to double-check but it is really amazing how all of those pennies quickly add up.  Go Costco!  So really, how could you not buy these at Costco?

This Week at Costco – July 20, 2014

July 26th, 2014 by Kimberly · 2 Comments

Thankfully, the weather hasn’t been as hot or humid here this week!  I was pretty sure I was actually going to melt last week.  And of course, it was one of those weeks when we had to be out and about running around doing lots of stuff in the heat too.  Ugh!  Hopefully, everyone else is enjoying their summer though because I feel like I’ve barely had one but it’s already the end of July.  I’m going to need to pack a lot of summery fun into August, I think.

Don’t forget that there are two new Costco locations, possibly one near you, that opened this week:  New Brunswick, New Jersey and Guelph, Ontario, Canada.

Micéli Marinated Anchovies

Micéli Marinated Anchovies

Micéli Anchovies in Marinade – These are not at all like the usual anchovies you get in olive oil and definitely not like the ones in salty brine. They aren’t at all fishy tasting and don’t seem to have that not great (I might say “tough and rubbery” if I were being unkind) texture that you can sometimes get with the anchovies in jars or tins.  The marinade is made from sunflower oil, vinegar, salt, and citric acid and doesn’t really impart too strong a flavour to the fish at all, you can taste it a bit but it isn’t overly vinegary so it’s a mild flavour if any.  The anchovies really just have a nice fresh taste and the texture is really soft and lovely.  They are delicious!  You can see the white colour of the anchovies and from that you can tell that these anchovies have been placed in the marinade when fresh, and were not cured; cured anchovies have the dark colouring.  These fresh anchovies avoid the really strong flavour that you might usually associate with anchovies, and also the overly firm texture too.  If you’re not a fan of anchovies normally because of that strong fishy taste and unpleasant texture, then you should give these a try because these have stayed nice and fresh, as well as soft, in their marinade.  The texture and fresh taste make these anchovies the perfect choice to add to salads or pasta or other fresh dishes.  We love them on salads with a little squeeze of lemon juice and not much else even.  The good thing is that when you have your own big container of them, you don’t have to be anywhere near as stingy as they are in restaurants where they serve you a salad with two or three little anchovy filets and act like they’re doing you a favour.  Plus, of course, these are fresh so they taste better on your salad too.  The only thing that might be undesirable to some people is that they leave the skin on, but you can’t even tell at all when you are eating them because it is very soft and just melts into the fish.  The great thing about these is that you can get all of the great health benefits of anchovies, without overloading on salt.  Anchovies are great sources of iron, Omega-3s, protein, B vitamins, and all of that while being low in calories.  If you’re going to get fresh anchovies like this, then Costco is definitely the place to go because a 200 gram package of similar fresh marinated anchovies is someplace between £3.50 – £4.00 and that’s not even half the size of the container at Costco but the cost is almost as much.  We love these and pick them up pretty much every time we go to Costco now.  I think we’re on our third container of them already because they are so delicious and perfect for summer salads.    500 grams for £4.19 (US: $7.56).  Item #: 0091475.

Pink Lady Apples

Pink Lady Apples

Pink Lady Apples – We buy a fair amount of our fresh fruit and vegetables at Costco.  I find that they have good prices and quality that is certainly on par with the best supermarkets.  Then there are some fresh items, where the quality is way better than the local supermarket; these apples were certainly in that category.  Recently, I had gotten the same type of apples from Ocado, my grocery delivery people, and they were tasty but tiny.  And by tiny I really do mean child sized and to get the baby apples we paid £3.00.  So, I definitely feel that the real sized apples at Costco, which are £0.61 less, are a much better deal.  The apples at Costco are also packaged in a tray so that keeps them from banging against each other and getting bruised and turned into applesauce.  We actually didn’t have a bruise on any of our apples that we got from Costco and they will last quite a while, if you don’t eat them all quickly because they are so good.  Dave really prefers the very tart green apples, so the pink lady variety is a bit of a compromise for us because it is sweet enough for me but not so sweet that Dave won’t enjoy them too.  They’re like the perfect apples to me, like ones you would actually grow if you had your own apple tree.  This is one of the few things at Costco that I wish came in a larger pack.  I would like nine apples at a time (yes, I know, I can just buy two trays of them and have a couple extra) and they’re not going to go bad so quickly that the bigger size is a worry.  If apples aren’t your fruit of choice, you should check out the awesome looking berries (strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries) that they have this time of year because they are beautiful and delicious.  Or maybe the pears, because they are also great looking and tasting. 6 apples for £2.39 (US: $4.31).  Item #: 0000236.

Slow+Low Pulled Pork

Slow+Low Pulled Pork

Slow+Low Pulled Pork with BBQ Sauce – I will say right up front, this was way better than either Dave or I were expecting.  I figured it would be more fatty than not and that the included sauce would be sickly sweet.  We’ve just not had good luck with this type of thing before.  I will say that if you are looking for something that will be ready to eat in just a couple of minutes and with no real involvement from you, this is probably not the product for you.  Basically what you get is a pork shoulder joint in a sealed plastic bag that you need to heat and shred.  The pork shoulder has a smoky rub on it made from spices like paprika, cayenne, onion powder, and salt and pepper.  In the bag the piece of pork doesn’t look that big in size, but once you shred it you realize that there’s actually quite a bit of meat there.  They claim six servings but I think four decent sandwiches is probably more realistic.  You can either cook your pork in the oven for 80 minutes or in the microwave for 18 to 20; we chose the microwave.  So, we did have to do some “work” by taking it out mid-way through its time in the microwave to shake it about a bit but nothing too demanding.  The real involvement comes from having to shred the pork yourself.  But luckily, this doesn’t take that long as the pork is so tender and juicy that it just falls apart with a bit of double fork action.  We debated about putting the included BBQ sauce on the meat because I really have a hate of sweet BBQ sauces which is usually what you get in things like this.  So, we did a little taste test before we put it on and I was impressed with how tempered the sweetness was, so we went ahead and added it.  Once on the meat, the sauce gave it a really nicely balanced smoky and sweet flavour that did a nice job of enhancing the pork.  We served ours on buns and it was actually pretty great.  It was a nice taste of the US for us expats.  It was also a really good meal for a warm summer night because we didn’t really have to get the house hot with the oven being on either.  Plus, if you serve this with some coleslaw, or the healthier choice of a salad, it’s even more summer appropriate.  And of course, top it off with an accompanying glass of the super good Kirkland Signature Organic Lemonade.  960 grams for £6.99 (US: $12.61).  Item #: 0168669.

Fila Men's Running Shoes

Fila Men’s Running Shoes

Fila Men’s Running Trainers  - Dave and I workout in the house, with our Wii (more strenuous than it sounds I’m sure), so we need shoes that we just wear inside and we also try to replace them frequently enough that we don’t end up having foot or joint issues as a result of shoes that no longer have good support.  But trainers are expensive!  So it is nice when Costco has a pair of inexpensive shoes that still offer support and a decent sole.  This is one of the things I appreciate about Costco, there are just certain items that they will always have in stock, and sneakers are one of those things.  Well, at least for men.  Granted, when we have been looking it’s for something to either just wear in general or for some kind of basic athletic pursuit like walking or cross training, we’re not talking about shoes for running marathons or anything like that.  It probably also helps that we are old enough to not really care what brand or even what colour they are.  But really, where can you get a decently made, name-brand athletic shoe for just less than £20.00?  Really nowhere in the UK it seems.  Dave’s new shoes wouldn’t be his pick for colour or probably not even the brand.  However, they work well for his indoor workout with decent support across the foot and the sole gives enough cushion to make running on a hard wood floor more comfortable. Unfortunately, they don’t seem to carry athletic shoes for women at our Costco very often.  I had to buy my most recent pair from Amazon and they were £60.00 and aren’t anything special, actually I’m not even sure their insole is as nice as Dave’s £13.00 pair of trainers.  Honestly, it killed me to have to pay so much but my other ones were shot and I couldn’t wait any longer for Costco to get some shoes for women.  Obviously, I’d have much preferred a pair for £20.00 at Costco.  Because of the low prices at Costco, you can actually replace them every 6 months or so and not be so bitter about it; if you exercise a lot you should do this for good foot health.  Our only trouble buying shoes at Costco for Dave is that his foot is a fairly substantial size 13, so sometimes it is hard to find his size.  I think we had to dig through quite a few boxes this time to find his size, but for that kind of savings, it was totally worth the extra time and effort.    £12.99 (US: $23.44).  Item #: 0781364.

Recall: Peaches, Plums, Nectarines & Pluots Recalled Over Possible Listeria

July 23rd, 2014 by Kimberly · No Comments

Wawona Packing, a central California produce company, alerted several stores across the US to a voluntary recall of specific lots of peaches, plums, nectarines, and pluots.  The recall was triggered by internal testing that determined there could be possible listeria contamination.  To date no one has become ill from the fruit. After the positive test, the company shut down the contaminated line and sanitized it thoroughly.  They have conducted daily follow up tests which have all been negative for listeria.

The recalled fruit consists of whole peaches (white and yellow), nectarines (white and yellow), plums, and pluots packed between June 1, 2014 through July 12, 2014 with the stores being informed about the recall on Saturday, July 19.  The stores affected by the recall include not only Costco but Fred Meyer, Trader Joe’s, and Sam’s Club.

If you have additional questions regarding the recall, you can call Wawona Packing at 1.888.232.9912, Monday to Friday, 8 am to 11 pm ET, or visit www.wawonapacking.com for a copy of the press release.  The website has a searchable list of product codes that are part of the recall, they have also posted images of all of the recalled products at the various stores.

If you have any produce that you are unsure of, definitely check it against the photos and information on the company’s website before consuming.  If you find out that you have purchased the recalled fruit, DO NOT eat it, return it to the store where you purchased it for a refund.

Listeria can be bad news for anyone that has a compromised immune system, including the very young, the very old, or those that are pregnant, causing serious and sometimes fatal infections.  Pregnant women should be especially cautious as listeria infections can be passed on to the fetus even when the mother shows no symptoms. In utero infections have been known to cause premature delivery and can result in serious health complications for a newborn, miscarriage or stillbirth, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  A healthy person will usually experience short-term symptoms that include high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea.

Costco UK Coupon Book: July 21 – August 10, 2014

July 21st, 2014 by Kimberly · 1 Comment

The new Costco UK coupon book starts today, Monday, July 21, and runs through August 10.  This new coupon book has savings of just £650.00 in it, which is a bit more than the last coupon book offered.   There are some nice coupons in this one.  I’m not sure there’s anything all that spectacular, but there are some good coupons for cleaning supplies and things to stock up on, which is always good in my opinion.

Costco UK Coupon Book: July 21 - August 10, 2014

Costco UK Coupon Book: July 21 – August 10, 2014

I’ve uploaded the new Costco UK Coupon Book PDF (or view it in the Google PDF viewer).  If you didn’t get your book or never do, you should stop by Customer Service and make sure that they have all of your mailing information correct and that you have allowed them permission to send you things in the mail.  Also, while you’re there, ask them for a copy of the latest book if they didn’t hand you one when you walked in the store.  In the UK they print the coupons on both sides of the pages and without the codes and they just automatically deduct them after they ring up your items.  I love this method of couponing and I’m glad to see that it seems all Costco locations in the world are following suit.  I do still find it useful to have a copy so I know what to look for because I don’t always notice the signs that they’ve posted to let you know what has a coupon.  Of course, they often hand you a copy of the coupon book when you walk in the store or have them sitting there so you can grab one at you enter. I usually download a copy of the PDF to my phone before I go to the store so that I can easily reference it while shopping.  If you sign up to receive emails from Costco.co.uk, they will send out an email that lets you know that the new coupon book is available online, usually the weekend before the new book starts.  Since they now post the coupons on the Costco UK website, you can always download a copy of the latest coupon book from there; you can also find a link to it on the Warehouses Offers webpage.

I feel good that I refrained from buying toothbrushes last weekend when we were at Costco because I figured they were going to have a coupon for this in one of the next books, and I was right.  There’s a coupon this time for my preferred tooth cleaning duo from Oral-B.  You can get £2.80 off a four pack of 75 ml tubes of Oral-B ProExpert Toothpaste and/or £2.80 off an eight pack of Oral-B Advantage CrissCross Toothbrushes.  I just started using the last two toothbrushes in our previous package, so I’m definitely going to take advantage of this deal.  After the deal is taken into account, the cost is just £8.62 (with VAT), which is just slightly more than £1.00 per toothbrush, which is about half the price that you’d pay at any other retailer.  Last time there was a coupon for the ProExpert toothpaste I bought a couple of them, so I’m set for a while.  But this is a great toothpaste that gives you that fresh from the dentist clean teeth feeling.  With the deal, the four pack costs £6.42 (with VAT) or £1.61 per tube, which is anywhere from £0.10 to £1.00 less than other retailers.  So, you can have super clean teeth and save some money.

While we’re talking health and beauty, there’s a deal for £2.00 off the Kirkland Signature Daily Facial Cleansing Towelettes.  You can get the package of 150 towelettes for £7.18 (with VAT) or £0.05 per towelette.  I think these are great because they get almost all makeup off except for waterproof mascara or really heavy eye liner, plus they don’t require you to rinse your face after cleansing.  And afterward, your face really feels moisturized and never tight.  I think these are great for nights when I’m super tired and just don’t feel like going through the whole face washing hassle but know that I need to take off my makeup.  They’re also really nice for travel since there are restrictions on liquids now, and these pack a lot flatter than two bottles of makeup remover and cleanser.  And anytime we go camping, these are definitely in my supplies since they don’t require you to use water at all.

We buy a lot of skinless, boneless chicken breasts, so I was super thrilled to see the coupon for £3.00 off on those.  These are great for things like stir-fry, which is mostly how we use them.  But we also use them to add to soups, salads, or pasta.  The boneless skinless thing means that you can slice them easily for things like that, plus you’re not getting the extra fat and calories of the skin.  And of course chicken freezes really well too.  If we leave them somewhat frozen, you can slice them really thinly for super quick cooking in stir-fry.

Those are just a few of my favourites in this latest coupon book.  But there are lots of other nice coupons, like the one for £3.00 off a box of mosaic tile, which would be a huge savings if you were re-tiling your kitchen or bathroom.

This Week at Costco – July 13, 2014

July 19th, 2014 by Kimberly · 4 Comments

I know to any other place in the world our heatwave – supposed to be around 90 F Friday and Saturday – right now in London doesn’t seem that bad.  Well, I might be able to get some sympathy from Scandinavia.  But really, it seems so hot and humid here, in a place where there’s not a whole lot of air conditioning, that is feels just as miserable as temps over 100 F in Austin ever did.  Thankfully we got some hot weather friendly foods and beverages when we were at Costco last weekend.  Sadly though, it looks like it is going to be pretty hot next week too. Ugh!  We might have to take a trip to Iceland to cool off!

Kirkland Signature Organic Lemonade

Kirkland Signature Organic Lemonade

Kirkland Signature Organic Lemonade – This is the perfect thing to write about when it is going to be 90 degrees outside!  I don’t know how long Costco has had the Kirkland Signature lemonade, but this is the first time we’ve ever seen it.  We were kind of on the fence about buying it because the bottles are HUGE and our fridge is very not huge.  But Dave is a big fan of lemonade, so we decided we’d get it, throwing caution to the wind and ignoring the refrigerator space.  Yeah, we’re wild and crazy!  LOL  After we tasted it though, we were so thrilled that we didn’t let the fridge bully us into not getting it.  It is delicious and refreshing!  And chilled in the fridge it is perfect for summer.  It’s all totally organic and there’s nothing chemically in the list of ingredients: filtered water, organic lemon juice from concentrate, organic sugar, and organic lemon flavour.  It is deliciously lemony without too much of a painful tart taste.  It seems to me that they have the perfect blend of lemon and sugar, to get the balance of sweet to tart just right.  I think if it were less sweet it would be verging into the too tart, mouth puckering lemonade side of things.  Dave likes things way more tart than I do but he also thinks that the blend of this lemonade is perfect.  Also, it smells as good as it tastes.  It’s like a little bottle of fresh sunshine because of that great lemon scent.  The bottle was too wide to fit into the compartment on the fridge door, but luckily the bottles are not round so we were able to stand it up on its side on the shelves instead.  It’s really quite good and if they still have it when we go back to Costco in August, we will definitely be picking it up again.   2, 96 fl oz bottles for £5.79.  Item #: 0736083.

Bearfields Prime Gammon Steaks

Bearfields Prime Gammon Steaks

Bearfields Prime Gammon Steaks (aka Ham) – We’ve had this before, and pick it up quite often, even if it isn’t on our list.  This time it was definitely a impulse purchase.  This little package is really nice for our family of two since it is just four ham steaks.  Dave and I both really like ham but it is kind of impractical to make a ham for just the two of us.  To get a decent ham, it seems you have to get a pretty good sized one, and that usually means that we run out of our desire for ham before we actually run out of ham.  Usually, way before, to be honest.  And ham really doesn’t freeze very well.  So, this is the perfect solution for us.  We can enjoy ham without being hammed to death.  To prepare the ham you just put it under the grill/broiler in the oven for about 12 or 15 minutes.  The only other preparation you need to do is to score the thick rind on the outside of the steaks.  When you cook it the rind gets a little crunchy but the ham stays delicious and moist.  The steaks are really thick, most likely thicker than you would probably cut a slice off of your ham.  I haven’t measured them but each steak is probably a half inch thick before cooking.  That is definitely thick enough to be considered a “steak” cut.    Dave and I have always been amazed by the absolutely delicious taste and usually end up wishing we had bought another package.  We usually serve the ham steaks with some type of veggie and mashed or roasted potatoes.  However, they would be incredible on a sandwich with big thick slices of homemade bread.  Of course, that is predicated on the fact that I get the lead out enough to make some homemade bread.  This is one of those items that is almost always available at Costco in the meat area.  Unfortunately, it’s definitely not freezer friendly.  Of course, the use by date on the package gives you about three weeks usually to have it, so you do have a bit of time, as long as you have the space in your fridge.   4 gammon steaks; 908 grams for £6.99.  Item #: 0003882.

Dell' Ugo Crab & Crayfish Ravioli

Dell’ Ugo Crab & Crayfish Ravioli

Dell’ Ugo Crab and Crayfish Ravioli – I love pasta of all shapes and types.  Filled or non-filled, I love it all.  However, this I did not love.  It was actually a huge disappointment.  So much so that Dave actually suggested just throwing the second package of it away.  That is unheard of for him, but it really was that bad.  The filling of crab and crayfish sounded like it would be totally delicious but  was strangely bland.  Despite cooking it for just a short time, the crayfish also had a really unpleasant texture, kind of rubbery really.  But we maybe could have overcome all of that if the filling hadn’t been so ridiculously skimpy.  It was ludicrous!  Especially for the price of this stuff.  Because yeah, there was only 9 ravioli squares in each package.  After I cooked them, at least half of them looked like they had completely forgotten to put any filling in them.  And while one of them did burst open during the cooking, it barely showed in the pan.  Sad.  I bought this because I thought the filling sounded so good and like it would be great for a nice summer meal with a salad.  In reality it was just a total disappointment that left us both annoyed and hungry.  I’ve bought the Dell’ Ugo ravioli before, with different fillings, and have always enjoyed it, but this was enough to make me think long and hard before purchasing any more of their ravioli products.  I’m hoping this was just not their best work, but it was so so bad that I know it will colour my view of them next time I am considering getting their ravioli.  And that’s really too bad, because as I said, I love pasta!  2, 235 gram packages for £7.79.  Item #: 0091435.

Gillette Mach 3 Razor & Blades

Gillette Mach 3 Razor & Blades

Gillette Venus  and Gillette Mach 3 Razor Blades - Really, we only buy our razors and razor blades at Costco now.  And it isn’t just just because they are cheaper, but they are that.  The way they are packaged means that you can get at least 6 – 9 months of razor blades with one package and don’t have to worry about  running out anytime soon.  Since it takes up hardly any space for a package of 12 or 14 razor blades, and it isn’t like we are going to stop needing to shave, this is one of those times that buying in bulk makes a lot of sense, no matter how little storage space you have at your place.  At Costco, you can get the Venus razor blades by themselves which is great if you’ve already got a nice razor anyway.  When I bought these, which has been a bit ago now, there had a package with four, three blade packages bundled together.  The men’s Mach 3 package that we picked up for Dave last time had a razor as well as 14 replacement blades bundled together.  Either way, it is a great way to buy your blades and they are often much less pricey at Costco.  Of course, I am always amazed at how expensive razors are, no matter where you get them.  Though we did notice that for men, at least, you can get the full razors cheaper than you can get just the replacement blades most of the time.  Why is that?  It certainly seems it would be more expensive to make the whole razor than just making the blades.  Doesn’t it?  I mean, it’s the same blade on the razor so it doesn’t seem to make much sense.  According to Dave, you can even pop the blades off of the razor body if you just want to put the blades in your ‘real’ razor. Venus Razor Blades – 12 pack for £14.99.  Item #: 0048933.  Gillette Mach 3 Razor and Blades –  1 razor, 14 blades for £14.99.  Item #: 0150595.
