Make Your Own Coffee Pods



If you have a coffee maker that uses single use coffee pods and you're having a hard time finding them as I am or just find them too expensive...make your own. I found tea bags (no tea, just the bags) at Whole Foods (100 for $4.99). They are larger than the single tea bags so I trimmed the bag a bit. Open the bag and spoon in 4 tbsp of coffee and fold over and staple at the fold. I made 40 pods for $6.57 or 17 cents each.

    Wow, what a clever idea! I have a reuseable pod that I rinse every day, but I can't bring it to work and use it in the coffee maker there. This is an excellent tip I'm definitely going to use! - by EJSMITH5
