Today I ran out of “holders” for coffee cups in my car. That’s right. I had four Venti Starbucks cups.
This highlights two problems:
1) I drink waaaay too many $4.00 coffees
2) I am disgusting. Dude, throw your trash away!
I know I’m not the first to say it, but it’s amazing that even in a recession, the Starbucks drive-through is always six-cars deep. Do you realize that if I could quit my Starbucks habit, I could save, roughly, $20 a week.
Thats. $80 a month!
That’s $10,000 a year!
Okay that last estimate is a lie, but I ran out of fingers trying to figure out $80 X 12.
The problem with Starbucks is that I’m not even that crazy about the coffee. It’s really the cup. And, the foam.
I’m not about to invest in an espresso machine. I’m just way too lazy and poor for that.
But I did want to show you a fun little contraption that makes homemade coffee a little more palatable.
There are a few things I love about this little guy. It’s small, lightweight and takes up no room. It also works best on skim milk, but you can use it with any milk and you don’t have to heat the milk up, so it adds no extra time onto your morning ritual.
So now, for a fraction of the price, you can make your own Starbucks “latte.”
