    Still in. No purchases, but blessed beyond my wildest expectations with gifts and PIFs from others

    Ok only 19 days left...who's still in? I am but barely almost went out last month but didn't. (actually paid for a slim, but sold it for same price I paid before receiving to a memeber on a pipe smoker forum. Was a very good price and was going to use as my travel razor).

    I'm hangin in for the end too. I've been saving up my credit card rewards and gift money for the end of the year. So far, depending on Christmas gifts, my beginning of year binge looks like:
    • Delta Echo or North Shore replate on my Fatboy
    • Razorock BIG Bruce
    • Custom synthetic
    • Tuxedo knot to transplant into my old VDH Boar handle
    • Ted Pella blades for my MMOC
    • Old Type

    Still in. My purchases are going to be

    - Vitos Shave Soap
    - Jeeves Shave Soap
    - Fine American AS splash

    After that, will start selling off/PIF'ing some of my DE's (and donating to TSD raffles )

    I really want to be a bit more spartan. My RAD and BAD has passed and now I am looking to be more minimalist

    10-ish days ... still in

    my next shaving dollars will go towards some route66 soaps

    one of my sons heads back to the navy just after the first of the year

    i may have to 'buy a few days early' so that i can share some with him ... ;)

    Still in. I'll probably continue to restrain on soaps, as I think I still have a year's worth left. I've got some money set aside for a few things though. Delta Echo or North Shore replate on the Fatboy, One or two IB synthetics, need to restock my SE blades for the MMOC, and I may spring for a custom synthetic brush as well...

    Still in, no plans to purchase anything other than replenish MWF, Clubman Musk AS and Astra blades for all of 2017. Nothing new on my radar at this point.

    Believe it or not am still in this & there's no end in sight.
    I almost tapped out to buy a puck of iColoniali but the prices started shooting up before I got around to it.
    Happy that I was able to use up a couple of products that were almost done. I've still got enough supplies to make it another year. We'll see.

    About a week left.

    Ordered 100 Voskhod today.

    But... they're for my Dad's Slim, to be delivered in an upcoming visit.

    Made it. Although I was lucky enough to win two very nice brushes in TSD raffles this year.

    Made it. I'm still restraining on soap all year, but I need some more SE blades and there's a few hardware items I've been eyeing.

    I made it as well! Just ordered replenishment of consumables (Clubman Musk AS, MWF and a 100 pack of Astra SP)
    Still nothing new on my radar and should make it through 2017 NB as well.
    Congrats to everyone else who made it!

    Congratulations folks! For those of you who plan on a continued sabbatical in 2017 please feel free to mosey on over to the NB'17 thread and introduce yourselves. I'm sure some of us could benefit from your experience/wisdom. Have a great day all!
