    Presumably we all have enough soaps and creams that we get to have a daily rotation, but since my collection is large enough now that I can do a different soap or cream for every day of the week, I've made a rotation based on the product's first letter matching up with the day.

    Sunday (Variable)
    Monday - Mitchell's Woll Fat
    Tuesday - Tabac
    Wednesday - Williams
    Thursday - Taylor of Old Bond Street
    Friday - Very Cherry (Oleo)
    Saturday - Stirling (Scots Pine Sheep)

    What's your rotation?

    I don't know if I could be that organized...

    Shave soaps, and to a smaller degree, creams, have turned into a rabbit hole for me. They're so (relatively) inexpensive. The 30DC is an enabling thread (in a good way) :eatdrink047:. Some of them probably could go a month, two, or more and never use the same soap/cream. Me....maybe two and a half weeks. And....I'll be narrowing to about 2 weeks rotation. A few I've acquired either have no scent (to me), or the aroma just doesn't work in my world.

    I really like Proraso, TOBS, Wholly Kaw, Ogallala, Lather & Wood, Mitchell's Wool Fat, Castle Forbes, GFT, Cella, Arko, Stirling, SirHare, Williams...a few of those I have several flavors. Probably leaving out a handful or so (the herd getting thinned).

    I don't have any other big ticket habits or hobbies....so wet shaving gets my allowance. Of course what's left of it after the wifey and kids :innocent !

    I have 11 soaps in my rotation and only shave about 4 days a week.

    Weekends I usually reach for. Mikes, SV, Mystic Waters or Sudsy Soapery.

    Weekdays it's usually Cella or Haslinger but sometimes WSP, Irisch Moos cream, Panna Crema Lavandoto.

    I don't know where half of my soaps are at but ... the important ones are the ones that I use on a daily basis. :) DSC_1530.JPG DSC_1531.JPG DSC_1532.JPG DSC_1533.JPG DSC_1534.JPG

    I got to where I was using the same soaps (and creams) all the time. I store them out of my shave den, so, I know start a new week on Sundays. I use the same soap for a full week, then change out. I use the same razor, soap, brush, and A/S. It means I get to go through my entire "collection''.

    I have so many different razors, that sometimes I even forget about ones and then I get to use them for a full week and remember why I like them again.

    I pretty much go with Proraso Green-line products from spring to fall. During these months I may use Proraso White or Nivea Men Sensitive Shave cream, or Barbasol Soothing Aloe combined with the P-Green soap. Once September rolls around and cooler days show up I switch over to my trusty Tabac and Cella soaps. Mid-week variety is accomplished with the summer combinations, or in the fall, alternating switcheroos.
