Dollar General Gillette logo
While some people might pick up the Sunday paper and head straight for the business section, others can't wait to see the latest antics that Jon is dealing with due to that rascal cat, Garfield. Still others go straight to the horoscopes while people like my husband reach for the sports section to find out the latest scores.

Us deal-seeking folks, however, can't wait to see what bargains are to be found thanks to the P&G brandSAVER coupon booklet. Who doesn't want to save money on the things that we're going to buy anyway?

Having a GOOD sharp razor with a good shaving cream is helpful. Also I find that not shaving EVERYDAY gives you a smoother shave.
