Happy September everyone! There’s only 4 months left of the year, can you believe it?
And I still haven’t broken my newly developed Starbucks addiction. Part of the problem is that it is super-tasty. The other part is that it gives me a reason to leave the house everyday and get myself a (well-deserved) treat. Bc except for my daily Starbucks run, I’d be stuck at home all day. Every day. It’s a total burnout for me. I need a pleasant reason to get out.
But the #1 reason why I’m trying to break this habit is because I don’t want to spend $150/month on coffee. It’s just not in my budget right now.
So, I just bought some flavored coffee from the grocery and am going to try to poorly imitate the yummy iced caramel macchiato. This only cost me $1.50 a bottle vs the $4.55 a cup from Starbucks. So, I’m saving at least $3 a day doing this instead.
Hopefully, this will help me stop getting into the Starbucks drive-thru line everyday.
But now I need to come up with something else (free!) that’ll get me out of the house everyday. Going to the grocery doesn’t count bc it costs me $$$ AND I don’t even enjoy it so it’s not a treat.
FYI, I just tasted my new DIY coffee at home and it’s nowhere NEAR as delicious as the Starbucks one. I stink at this. 😂
