Step One.

Buy Starbucks Mocha Powder so you can make mochas at home.

Step Two.

Find a copycat recipe for those amazing Pumpkin Cream Cheese muffins.

Step Three.

Buy a like new espresso maker at the consignment shop for $7 so you can make steamed milk and espresso for cappuccinos and mochas.

Step Four.

Get yourself a Starbucks card and register it. Eventually you’ll earn one of those fancy Gold cards and they’ll give you a free drink occasionally. Also useful for keeping yourself on a budget. (Load the card monthly or weekly. )

Step Five.

Buy your Starbucks beans at the grocery store when they go on sale for $6.99 a bag and use those $1 or $1.50 off coupons that occasionally show up in the Sunday paper.

Step Six.

Don’t forget to take your empty coffee bag to Starbucks and get a free tall beverage (the bag is like a coupon).

Step Seven.

Always use your reusable mug, and make sure the barista gives you the .10 discount.

You’re welcome. :-)
