    Has anyone tried the Helmm deodorants?

    I'm intrigued by the refillable nature of it, but would love to hear from anyone who has tried it. Scent, effectiveness, etc. Anyone?

    Proraso Single Blade - Azure Lime

    Where were you able to get samples of the Proraso Single Blade? I’ve poked around my usual haunts and have not found them.

    I’m also a fan of Timbuk2 bags. Have had several styles, including backpacks, messenger bags, etc. Recommended.

    Proraso Single Blade

    Curious to try the Proraso Single Blade, but those bags seem like a big commitment. How big are they really? Are they unwieldy to manage?

    Do you have a signature style?

    Jeans with a nice dress shirt and necktie. I work in a VERY casual workplace, so it really stands out.

    Undershirts

    I used to get J. Crew Large-Talls (I’m 6’5”), but the fit changed a few years ago. I switched to Eddie Bauer, and the Large-Tall size works, but I wish they were a tiny bit longer.

    The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning

    It took a very long time (as well as expensive travel and hauling services) to clear out my parents’ home. Much of it was worthless “stuff” that had been sitting in closets and cabinets for decades. It led me to promise myself I wouldn’t do that to my kids. I had read the Marie Kondo book a...

    My den: Did some thinning out and reorganized a bit

    Those are old Dungeons and Dragons figures I hand painted approximately 40 years ago. Found them recently when cleaning out my parents’ house. I just kept those five.

    My den: Did some thinning out and reorganized a bit

    For bar/bath soaps, I have found I like some of the apple/pear fruit scents. Also some of the spicy scents.

    My den: Did some thinning out and reorganized a bit

    I’ve started buying some artisan bar soaps (those are indeed in another cabinet!). If I was just going to add three to the collection, what should they be?

    My den: Did some thinning out and reorganized a bit

    Ha! I share the bathroom, but I could probably use more space if I wanted. Part of me likes the constraint of just having the one shaving cabinet. That way I only keep the best stuff!

    My den: Did some thinning out and reorganized a bit

    Thanks for the kind words @Snurgblat , @MilkCrate, @ShavingPanda, @jdp93, @Chango, @ajkel64, @santamariasteve, @martinocando, @BigJ, and @Macfrommichigan! This is in our recently-remodeled bathroom, and there are actually TWO MORE cabinets like this one that remain empty!
