Sticker shock

Reading Time: < 1 minute

I did a double take when I realised I spent more on personal hygiene products to stock up my supplies than the average person gets in a week for Job Seekers Allowance (64.30 GBP for the average Joe over 24).


A pack of disposable razors, two deodorants, a tooth brush and two bottles of aftershave came out to a ton and change – it just isn’t rational that this lot should cost that much. The shop threw in two sample size aftershaves which should come in handy for travelling but seem like as if they’ve given me a badge saying ‘you’ve been shafted’.
