Going to trendy coffee shops and getting your favorite caffeine fix sounds tempting. And for busy people, they justify their coffee habit as a small way to treat themselves for their hard work. But if you spend $4 at Starbucks every single day, that’s $1,460 per year. Compare that to buying a bag of coffee and making it at home. Starbucks bagged coffee grounds or K-Cups are around $10 each, and it’s even cheaper if you find coupons or stock up during a sale. Let’s assume one bag lasts two weeks. That would be just $260 per year. You are still drinking the exact same coffee, but it’s a fraction of the price.
