Man, that Timeless is calling to me… must… resist!
 
for me 2022 is all about Williams, while I have some containers of other shave soaps, and I do like them, I'm really going to focus and work on the "drug store" stuff. Sure I will order some stuff when I can't source it locally, but I'm really focusing on old school stuff for 2022.

Ever since I scored a bottle of Old Spice, I've learned that great can be had at a decent price. I do love me some Stirling products though, so once I finish up my container of "green" I'll look to get something else from Rod. Maybe venture into the Bay Rums. Who knows.
 
2022 has so far been about keeping to a fixed set-up for a week at a time and trying to use one soap until it's gone!

It's an age old tale but through 2020 and much of 2021 I accumulated rather too many brushes, soaps, razors, blades etc. so Operation "USE IT OR LOSE IT" was launched in the autumn which whittled down the collection to 6 or 7 soaps & splashes, roughly 12 razors and a small assortment of different blades.

If I can get down to 5 favourite soaps, splashes, razors, blades and brushes it'll be mission accomplished :)
