PIF: Take a razor, add a razor

So if this is reinvigorated and moving forward I think it's awesome. I think I am out because of G.R.U.M.E. But I'm if I can make a stand on the technicality that I am breaking even. Regardless, this is a great idea and I hope it can be resurrected/keep on going.
 
With grad school and the blankety virus in full swing, this box has sat around. I dug around a bit last night, swapped some soap samples and blades, and eyeballed a couple razors. I'll take a closer look at the razors in the next couple days then I'll be ready to send it on.

Is this the current mailing list?

I totally understand! I've had the box since May and have only touched it once. I need to just send it on otherwise it's going to get buried and forgotten and likely cursed to a half-forgotten life.

Honestly it's gotten so big, it needs to turn into a 'take 3, add 1' box. If I had the time, I'd break it down a bit and send off some misc bits as PIF packages for some newer members while keeping most of the razors as a take 1 add 1 to pass around.
 
Looks like I'll have to take some pics to drum up some interest. It's a nice box with some good razors, soap samples, a brush, blades, and even some oil.
If I had an idea of what's in it I might join in the fun. I've got some stuff to add, as long as it's not redundant. A pic or two is a great idea!

Ease up on that guy. Life is what happens when we have other plans my friend.

I have no horse in this race, but I think the idea of making a PIF of some of the things is a good idea, if the gents who have been contributors to it agree. Cut down on some of the postage. The weight of that thing has got to be climbing!

It's in a large flat rate box currently.
 
Below is a full inventory. This box originally started out as a razor only box but has ballooned into a giant large flat rate box with a ton of extra stuff in it. I propose splitting it into two boxes. Box one goes back to its roots and becomes a true take-a-razor, add-a-razor box with razors (and SE blades) only and in addition to a minimum post count of 100 posts, you must provide a working phone number in addition to a shipping address when your turn comes up. This should help jog the box along should life get in the way and it gets forgotten. Everything should fit into a small flat rate box, making it cheaper to send along. Box two will contain DE blades, soap samples, and the misc items as well. It will get passed around the Shave Clinic & Newbie Check-In forum for new users to take-something-add-something or just to experiment with different soaps/oils/blades/whatever. Everything might fit into a small flat-rate box, but definitely a medium box. Let me know what you all think.

@spolct : I'm 100 percent in agreement with this scheme of yours!

But I have a feeling that a Moderator will have to sign off on this.

I could be wrong but I don't think a moderator had to sign off on the creation of this passaround box, so I'm not sure that sign off is required to split it up but I'm open to input. If this stuff leaves my house in one box or two, once it's gone I'm not super concerned about what happens from there so long as it's in good hands.

@Jim was the moderator I spoke with to get it going again.

Thought Jim?

think it’s a brilliant idea.
