    How Do You Save Money on Coffee?-save-coffee.jpg

    For many people, a cup of coffee in the morning is a necessity. If you buy your coffee at a local shop instead of brewing it at home, however, you’ll find that it can become quite expensive. The good news is that you can still enjoy a hot cup of coffee without sacrificing quality or emptying your pocketbook. Tips for Saving Money on Your Morning Coffee
    It took me far too long to realize how much I was spending every month on coffee.

    I switched to tea years ago, but still drink coffee from time to time, especially when I'm not home.

    If you study the coffee shop menu you'll find you can get a "daily cup" or "house blend" in a smaller cup for way less than the supersize latte or milkshake most people order.

    If you are doing a lot of errands and running around during the day, make note of which shops offer free coffee to their customers. Some grocery stores do, sometimes doctor's offices, hair salons, banks, and so on.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Because we, the people, have the power to build a better future. KH

    I buy it on sale but that's about it. Life is too short to drink cheap coffee. I want the good stuff (arabica beans) not the stuff in the blue plastic jugs. And I don't really like any except what I make myself.

    The only time we buy coffee to drink is when we are traveling. Other wise we drink it at home or I take it to work. We don't skimp on coffee or coffee creamer. It's Community coffee for us and Cold Stone creamer. We use coupons when we can, stock up when it goes on sale and/or buy at Sam's Club to reduce the cost.

    My coffee downfall ( as most here already know ) is Dunkin'. I don't like Starbucks period. I don't do flavored coffee...just plain old coffee. My coffee at home of choice is Folgers. I have bought Maxwell House after years of not buying but found it to inconsistent with taste. Sometimes good... sometimes sucks.

    I used to love Coffee Rich creamer and half and half. If given a choice the Coffee Rich. Otherwise Coffee Mate. I HAD started buying the Coffee Rich again and found it messed my stomach up so I bought half and half. Same. Just didn't sit well at all. Only flavored creamer I like is Irish Creme but only time I ever use it is gas station coffee in desperate measure time And I've tried a ton of them.

    I do like Pumpkin Spice in the fall but only at a particular gas station. Not even Dunkin' can compare. On the other hand I haven't even done that the last couple years. I went in before the end of December this year and they'd already quit. With a severe cholestrol problem I don't push it so I forget they even have it in the fall.

    Guess I save by not being into "better" coffee than Folgers. I also buy it at $General with the $5 off $25 when it's on sale for $6.50 and get several even cheaper.

    LL... hubs tried the Community somewhere. I think Winn Dixie when they started carrying it they were brewing pots of it and giving it away. He had it a couple times there and raved. Must be good

    Before I quit smoking 11 years ago this coming April my dh and I drank Maxwell House..I don’t drink coffee much since I quit.

    I used to buy on sale and used coupons never bought coffee outside of the home.

    We have a Kerig per dh’s request not cheap (dh doesn’t like the insert where you can fill it yourself) but always try to buy on sale..still don’t buy outside the home.. I just hit the jackpot at Samsclub and they had on markdown variety 54ct for $10.91 so I bought 8-boxes probably should of bought every box they had now that I think about it... I have at least a years worth all together as of right now.. I save by stocking up when the sale is good and stay ahead so I don’t put myself in a position where I need to pay full price..always have the kerig ready for my dh in the morning.

    My BIL ordered (he thought) decaf coffee from Amazon. They shipped him regular. They told him to keep it when he re-ordered. So I wound up with two 24 ounce bags of Eight O'Clock whole beans.

    BTW my sister re-checked his order and he had ordered the regular AGAIN by mistake. Not sure if she was in time to change it.
