It took motivation to stay in the outside line on my way to work as I drove by the two coffee drive thru's for a few weeks. But making my coffee at home before I go (a la travel mug) and/or at work has been a huge money saver. I'm saving over $900/yr!

I am someone who needs morning coffee like I need air, but rather than grabbing a cup on my way to work or class I bought a home coffee maker and started saving instantly. The coffee pot paid for itself in under 2 weeks of not purchasing coffee on the go plus I'm not being wasteful since I am no longer using paper and plastic disposable cups from vendors. 271
All the flavor of high-cal coffee drinks, none of the guilt!
Add a 0-cal flavor to your coffee with some almond milk instead of hitting the coffee shop! I like Torani's 0 calorie Hazelnut or Chocolate flavoring syrup with 1/2 cup (20 cal) almond milk in a strong brewed-at-home cup of coffee. Save 4 bucks, and plenty of cals!
