@brucered i feel your pain. Their is no local availability of decent shaving products near me. That’s what drove me to load up on a few of my favorite soaps when I could take advantage of cheap pricing and freight. I keep about a years supply of soap/cream in a drawer. The rest is vacuum sealed and stored in a cool dry place where it’s out of sight and out of mind. If I could buy a few soaps or creams locally that I liked I would have no stock pile at all. I really hate paying as much for freight as I do the product itself and even though I’m a minimalist at heart I had to face the fact that I was just going to have to find a few favorite products and make a place to safely store them.
