Tips for Coffee Drinkers
- July 22, 2014
Most coffee drinkers have heard countless times that they need to drink less coffee or not to spend money on it, but these tips are to give those drinkers a little insight on what they can do just to save at least some money when they go buy their morning, afternoon, and evening coffees. These tips are not going to simply tell you to stop because that is most likely not going to happen any time soon, however, if you could spend less on a drink, it’s worth taking into consideration right?
Primarily let’s look at the coffee drinkers that are choosing to drink their coffee at home instead of at their local shop or Starbucks. At least you are taking the first step in saving but why not go further and make sure you’re buying your coffee in bulk. If you drink quite a bit of coffee and you keep buying the smaller pack because it might save you money at the moment, it’s actually going to continuously cost you more. If you have a little extra time in the morning than try buying whole beans instead of ground, this will save you money per bag, and a grinder costs only about $10 dollars. Even though you might really love the coffee you’re drinking, there is probably not that much of a difference between yours and slightly cheaper brands. If you end up hating it, at least you saved a little money for the time being.
The people who get the most harassment about drinking coffee are the ones who have to sit in line at Starbucks and have their coffee every single morning or they are horribly grumpy. Even if you are one of these people you can still save money when you order that drink! Try ordering a smaller size, you don’t need that much to survive till work so get into the habit of drinking less. However, if you really feel the need to have a bigger one, don’t order a specialty one! Plain old coffee from Starbucks is actually quite good and a lot cheaper. But once again, if you need the big specialty drink then bring your own mug because most people don’t realize that they incorporate the price of the cup into the final price.
The last tips that you should keep in your mind when you go to order your morning coffee is that there is probably a coupon for it. Before you go to sleep tonight, look at some coupon websites and see if you can get some deals for tomorrow. Another tool you can use at your disposable is the online coffee calculator, it will at least give you an insight at the money you could be saving if you didn’t buy coffee every day. Finally, take advantage of free coffee at work! On your break, make a coffee and socialize instead of leaving to buy another coffee.
