Save money, don’t go to Starbucks

We’re not hating on Starbucks or anything, don’t get it wrong. Give us a grande frappa-anything and we’d be happy as a clam. But, how much money are you wasting at the coffee shop every single day? We’re guessing about $5-$7+ dollars on any given trip, depending on what you get of course. It’s pretty straightforward why you would want to stop at a coffee shop (it’s fast, convenient, hot & delicious) but if you made your own coffee, you would save SO much money.

Here are a few things to do at home to make yourself better than the barista at your fav. coffee shop:

#1 Buy a great coffee maker. This one goes without saying. What’s good coffee without an amazing maker? Among the most popular are Keurig, Krups, Cuisinart and the list goes on.

#2 Pick the right beans. What kind of coffee do you want? If you’re missing the Starbucks French Roast feel, go out and get some Starbucks beans to brighten your day. The best part about making your own coffee is that there are tons of different brands and types of coffee beans out there to try until you find one you can’t live without.

#3 Use those bucks. You go to the coffee shop about 3 times a week, for approx. $6 a trip. Try putting the same amount of money that you spend at the coffee shop in a jar in your room and then empty it at the end of the month. Treat yourself to something small or even put it away for saving. You’ll realize how much money you’re saving and never turn back.
