If you’re anything like me, you love lattes but don’t love the price. My typical Starbucks summer order used to go something like this… “a tall, sugar-free caramel iced soy latte, please!” The total? $3.87 (yikes!) Realizing I could concoct a similar drink for almost half the price, my new order became… “a tall iced coffee with a shot of sugar-free caramel and a splash of soy.” The new and improved latte knock-off total? A mere $1.94!
*Also a good money-saving tip: always make sure to ask for “light on the ice” to get more coffee for your dollar!
Oh! And don’t forget to bring in your re-usable mug or tumbler to Starbucks to save 10 cents on your drink (or bring it to Caribou to save 15 cents, or to Dunn Bros. and save 25 cents!) – save some cash while saving some trees!
