Who Needs Starbucks....Part II

I blogged about this here several months ago and felt compelled to do a follow-up post after reading this article this morning online Starbucks is raising prices .

I have to agree with the majority of the folks who commented, why are we spending all that money (some of us everyday) for a product you can easily make at home for much less?? 

My hubby bought me a Keurig last year and I LOVE IT! I can't say enough good things about this machine.  It has not only saved money, but time.  I don't know about you, but there's no Starbucks in my neighborhood, so that means I have to drive all the way to the nearest mall to find one.  I live in the boonies people..LOL!!

When I go to the supermarket I purchase my flavored creamers (during the Holiday season they usually have the Pumpkin Spice, Gingerbread and other yummy flavors available) and Redi Whip.  I also keep a jar of caramel in the fridge and there's always cinnamon and nutmeg in the pantry.  I sometimes use my K-Cups but I also have this nifty contraption that allows you to use your favorite ground coffee instead. 

Look at all that yummy goodness dripping down the side of the glass.

Super convenient cups for when you're on the go.  I purchase mine at Dollar General.  That cute coffee canister holds my stash of Starbucks coffee.  I purchase mine when they go on sale.

I'm just saying, I don't know about you guys but I would much rather spend my spare money on home decor items, awesome fabrics or a pair of cute shoes than to spend it on a cup of Joe!!
