The Latte Factor

This Sparked Me!

You've heard of it...The Latte Factor... it's that 5 bucks (or more) you spend every time you go out for coffee...

If, like I have, your getting on the Spark Plan means that you're no longer spending $5 every time you head out for a coffee, start collecting that money in a jar, piggy bank etc & every now & then, use that money to buy yourself a reward for doing well on the plan...a new shirt, a piece of jewelry,

    Or to save money... every time you buy an expensive cup of coffee, (or eat out for lunch) you could put an equal amount in savings. For example, $5.00 for a large coffee = $5.00 in the savings account too. $9.00 for a lunch out with the office gang = $9.00 in savings... After a while, I bet the savings would really start to add up.

    I have always hated coffee, even the smell of it, since when I was a child, my mother, who was a hardworking woman, couldn't talk to us in the morning until she had a pot of coffee and three "smokes" and by that time, my brother & I had gotten ourselves ready & walked to the school bus. I swore I'd NEVER drink coffee or smoke as a result. LOL My brother still smokes and talks about all the money he's wasted on it in his life. Not me. emoticon

    I was a twice per day drinker at Starbucks... cafe' mocha in morning and a mocha frap later that day... if I collected and saved that money I would be able to buy myself a great reward.
