Starbucks, who?


My 2010 is all about spending less, being wiser with my money, and controlling my spending urges. That being said, I am proud to admit that I have not spent one dime at Starbucks so far this year. Instead, when I need a coffee fix, I make a cup at home and add flavored creamers. My current faves are these two ... Vanilla Caramel and Italian Sweet Cream. Yum

That's great! Keep it up! Then you can use all that money that you saved on something that you REALLY wanted to begin with.

As for me, I'm sooo lucky that I never got hooked on Starbucks. I actually can't stand anything from them, it all tastes soo sugary and artificial to me. :p

I try to limit my Starbucks to once a week. It's hard, but I know if I saw NEVER I will just cave & go as much as I want. I have zero will power.

I'm a creamer girl myself. I love the creme brulee. Yummy. I really love the holidays like pumpkin spice or peppermint mocha. If only they sold those year round.
I haven't cared for the Italian ones. Sweet Cream is okay, but I really hated Tiramisu. I tried to b/c I really like real tiramisu. The cream, however, tasted like feet. It was just ew.

I don't go as much as I used to. Yay me!

Do these really substitute for Starbucks? If so...I'm so there. I've been trying to find ways to cut back on the spending and this would definitely help.

my new fav creamer is the new Coffeemate "coffee house inspired" Caramel Macchiato. I just saw a skinny version at Safeway too!

The closest Starbucks to me is about 45 miles away so needless to say, I don't go there often. We have a Moxie Java instead.

I love flavored coffees too! Like LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them!!!!!! I've discovered that if I don't want to make one at home that I can get them much cheaper at most of the local gas stations. Not quite the same as Moxie but still quite tasty! And considerably cheaper than what I'd pay at Moxie or Starbucks!

I had chicken nuggets tonight at home instead of sushi. Feels so good to save but honestly, chicken nuggets? ech
