I know what you mean, our grandfathers generation were ok with just 1 razor, 1 brush & 1 soap. Even if they could afford to stockpile. Yet we have to have to have a collection. Anyway we will just have to try to remember what pushed us over the edge during the next GRUME. For me it was browsing shaving supply websites combined with my March GRUME attitude of "Not Buy shaving stuff for a month, this will be easy"I know, it is hard... I wait for delivery of 2 packages (the one with Yaqis should arrive tomorrow) and yet, i still have an itch for something more... Even though i have enough things now to join GaryTha in the 10 year sabattical... And i keep thinking...Maybe i should get one more horse brush with a nice handle that i like? Maybe grab some more soaps? Logic says "no", because i have very long brush rotation already and who knows when i will use the soaps. But still, this urge... It is fault of the forum. It is like trying to become a monk inside the Folies Bergère! I can't wait for May to come, to get into the next GRUME. This might stop me this time!
