~I just realized that the Fair Trade coffee I've been drinking costs $.15 per 6 ounce cup. Organic decaffeinated tea costs $.04 per 6 ounce cup. (I steep extra long with more water or reuse grounds and bags.)

I drink about 3 cups of coffee every morning. I'm drinking $13.50 of our food budget on just coffee(3% of budget). It's decaf so it has almost zero nutritional benefit to me so not really worth that price.

If I replace just one cup of coffee with tea I will save over $3 a month/$36 a year.
Replace two cups with tea and save over $6 a month.
Replace all coffee(yeah right!)and save nearly $10 a month.

Starting with a one cup replacement tomorrow. Every little bit helps. ~
