Where I live, drug stores have canned products and shave butters. I can order Palmolive Cream online for $8, or a stick of Arko for $5 (gets cheaper the more you get).
Williams Mug Soap and Van Der Hagen Deluxe are available from a national chain with free ship to store, but I can't just drive...

I thought I'd share this spreadsheet that I came up with to track my blade rotation. When I started out a few months ago, I went crazy with all sorts of different brands...
