RazorKeeper is a travel case for your razor. Its purpose is to make traveling and backpacking/camping with your razor much easier.
RazorKeeper is designed to prevent your razor cartridges from dulling prematurely or becoming dirty. It is also built to prevent cut fingers and messy leaks in your luggage.
Don’t just take our word for it and try it risk-free!
Did you see the RazorKeeper post pinned to the top of the blog? This is the first product I brought to market. In this post, I will tell you step by step how I did it.
- Identified a problem. I travel frequently and have been having difficulty packing my razor. I could not find a travel razor case that I wanted to buy. Nor did I want to continue to wrap my razor in a towel, put it in a sock, drop it in a ziplock bag or use the bulky original stand which came with it.
- Thought of a solution. I imagined what a good razor travel case would look like and what functions it would serve. I sketched things and wrote them down to help my thought process along.
- Created a prototype. Continue reading
Several months ago, late in the evening, I took a cab from the airport. This was in NY; cabbies are talkative in NY. My cabbie was a man in his late 50s. Conversation flowed as the odometer rolled on the miles. The meter, of course, kept pace.

“You must be happy to have grandkids,” I said. “I guess you are working to help out with expenses.”
“Yep, they do require some spending,” said the cabbie. “Except they are not my grandkids. Continue reading
“I retired on a $30,000 a year defined-benefit pension. There have been no inflation adjustments to my pension income, but I certainly felt inflation. And I did not have much invested beyond that.”
I heard this today from a 60-something year-old retired gentleman in Florida. There is so much I could have told him. But I didn’t. Because what I had to say cannot help him now. It would have been much more useful 30 years ago… Continue reading
It’s true. Previously, I wrote about the virtues of avoiding or quitting your job. And now, it’s time to amend that post.
One of my friends said something interesting the other day. “If you are reaching for something up high,” he said, “It helps to stand on something.”
My first impulse was to argue. After all, I did write the post describing various ways in which employment can hurt a person. But then, I reconsidered. Allow me to explain… Continue reading
Often, I have investing discussions with a buddy of mine. You met him on this blog before. Today, he brought up an interesting subject. In 1931, when the Hoover Dam construction began, it cost $49 million. How much more would that be in today’s dollars? Did the stock market keep pace with that increase?
We bet a cup of Starbucks on this, Continue reading
