I found years ago, that shaver blades as well as soap pads will last for a long time, if you keep them in soap gel, I believe that the soap gel keeps metal from pitting and rusting, so they stay newer longer.

Make the soap gel made with just water and a sliver of a soap bar in some type of container. Make sure it is jelly like, and just rinse your shaver blades well. Then put them into the soap gel between use, and I found that the blade(s) were just as sharp as when new for months for my leg shaving.

With the soap pads, I put one into a smaller empty margarine tub, and cover it with water, and the next day, the soap turns into soap gel, and just take the now steel wool pad in the soap gel, and using the soap gel to clean your pots and pans, rinse it out, and put the pad back inside the soap gel, to keep the steel wool from rusting. The soap pads last longer that way, and when the soap gel is gone, start new with another soap pad in the tub.

I also cut them in halves (good for sharpening scissors too), and one half is cut into quarters, so that I have a larger piece, and two smaller pieces.

I store my spare razor blades in an empty Tic Tac container.

Small plastic containers for mints or gum, or empty film canisters are the perfect size for storing single edge razor blades.

Empty matchbooks can be used to store razor blades. Just insert the razor blade into the bottom part of the matchbook. The strike plate can even be used to sharpen the blade in a pinch. Mark the matchbook so you know what's in it.
