One Year Income Statement for The Frug Life (Podcast)

One year later, and the podcast is still going strong. I thought I would share some of my metrics for those who are interested. I always find it so interesting to see the business aspect of some of my favorite podcasts and Youtube channels (sometimes more interesting than the content itself). So here are some of my metrics for the last year of podcasting.
Here is my profit and loss statement for the past year, as well as a screencap from my Stripe account. The Stripe balance roughly should equal the ad revenue plus contributor income in the statement below (the difference is timing, as I didn’t pull the wallet balance exactly one year after the podcast started).

Frugal Shaving

If you are like me, you hate shaving, or at least I used to. I would use cheap disposable razors or an electric. My electric razors would eventually break after a few years. I would never pay for a razor that needed expensive cartridges, that seems like a scam. How can just a few razors cost so much money? Well, they really shouldn’t. Instead, I recently got a safety razor. It trims way better than a cheap disposable razor, but it is just as inexpensive!

This is about 100 blades for just 10 bucks. That is just like a few traditional cartridges. So at about 10 cents a razor, I think it is a great deal, plus a much better quality of life. Being frugal isn’t about about the lowest possible price, it's about getting the best value.All this comes with just a $17 buck investment into a handle. I love mine so far.

Note, the links above are affiliate links and I do receive compensation from amazon if you use them. Regardless, I do endorse the razor handle. I have not ordered this particular refill pack yet, but the razor blades are commodities and I don’t anticipate any issues with them.
