Here we are at Day 5! Question: How many of you frequent your favorite coffee shop every weekday morning for coffee? Even bigger question: How much money do you spend per month on your coffee shop purchases? Go ahead and calculate it....I'll wait! Now, multiply that by 12...still waiting! What number did you get? Exactly! This is why today's gift idea is such a great one: an at-home coffee brewing system! Think about it...there are so many different brewing systems on the market, and I'm sure you can find one that does exactly what you like. Stock up on coffee and syrups to personalize your beverage every morning in your own home, and save some money. And as an added bonus, your home will have that nice, sweet java smell when you're brewing...am I the only one who likes the smell of coffee brewing?
I'll admit that I am a frequent flyer at Starbucks. In fact, it has become somewhat of a routine for me to stop at the Starbucks for a highly-caffeinated beverage before I head into the office. I did the math just like you all did, and the number shocked me! Then I started thinking, "what would happen if I replaced three coffee shop drinks per week with a homemade drink." I'll tell you (and myself) what would happen...we would save a lot of money! Check out some of the more popular systems I found around the Internet:
|Keurig K45 Elite Brewing System - $119|
|Keurig Rivo Cappuccino and Latte System - $229|
|Starbucks Verismo 580 Brewer - $99|
|Cuisinart Single Serve Brewing System - $199|
|Hamilton Beach Pod Coffee Maker - $24.99|
