I recently switched from Gillette's Mach 3 Power Turbo to their new Fusion Power line. Yes it's the disposable razor with 5 blades and a battery. I recommend it, but it's fairly pricey. At the local Rite Aid and it was $28 for an 8 pack of blades. And that's buying in bulk. If you only want 4 blades, it's worse.
At $3.50 a blade, it's not a very economical way to shave. So I turned to Ebay. There are numerous sellers with bulk blades for sale. You can get a good deal on a lot as small as 16 or as many as 500. I decided that I'd go for the 40+ blades, which I got for about $1.66 a blade. I figure I've got my shaving solution for probably the next 2-3 years.
The best part (according to my fiancee) is that they won't take up too much space. It's not like the time I bought 48 rolls of paper towels...
