Cut Back on Coffee


January 5, 2015: Cut Back on Coffee

Want to grab coffee sometime? You may think twice before asking this again after you hear what I have to say today…

Is there any more common of a saying in our vernacular today than, “Wanna grab coffee?”  And coffee shops are banking on it, literally!

So much so that a new report estimates that the average American worker spends nearly $14.40 a week on coffee, which does not include the cost of drinking coffee at home. This adds up to $1100 a year.

Even if you cut back to just once a week, you’d easily be saving $40 a month and nearly $750 over the course of a year. Try treating it like a treat inside of something you deserve and soon you’ll find yourself able to afford a REAL treat!


The Family Money Minute is made possible by Operation Christmas Child, who reminds us that by saving money, we can make a bigger impact on the lives of needy children around the world.
