Coffee a Day..

Coffee a Day..?

Find yourself rushing for the morning java rush? Or the mid-afternoon energy boost from your favourite caffeine drinks? Buying and drinking coffee has become the norm. With so many café’s, coffee shops, specialty coffee chains, how can we resist? Many people believe that they can’t truly operate until they get their “morning” coffee into them. Well that is fine (financially speaking, maybe not so medically) just be cautious on how you get that daily coffee.

Depending on where you purchase your daily coffee, it can really add up to real savings (or spending) over one year.
Refer to the following graph for an illustration

Regular Coffee $1.50 * 365 = 547.50
Cappuccino $3.50 * 365 = 1277.50
Lattes $4.00 * 365 = 1460.00Savings

Find yourself with the situation that most resembles you, and realize that ONE coffee per day, really does add up. I am not saying you can’t treat yourself, but you have to be smart about your choices. Maybe a good way to treat yourself is allow yourself to buy two coffees per week. Depending on your work schedule maybe you find Monday’s to be the most challenging day to get going, but if you allow yourself that “treat” on a Monday, it might motivate you more. You will notice that the less you have of the product, the more you will begin to really enjoy it, while saving some money at the same time.

Don’t forget, there is always the traditional method, such as making your own coffee at home. This way you can enjoy what you make, with the people you want to be with.
