So, over the years I’ve learned to make things myself – or find less expensive ways to get the full-service experience. And since coffee is almost as necessary as water at our house, we’re finding frugal means to enjoy it as much as we can.
Here are a few ways to get a good cup of joe on the cheap:
- Small Notebook shows you how to make a delicious iced coffee at home.
- Sign up with Gevalia coffees to receive 3 boxes of coffee for $3. Plus, they throw in a free travel mug.
- Earn Swagbucks by using their service as your search engine. Trade your points in for free gift cards from Starbucks.
- Got leftover coffee in the pot? Freeze it into ice cubes to add to iced coffee drinks or homemade frappucinos.
- Try this recipe for Mexican spiced ice blended coffee from Baking Bites.
- Create this fancy dessert that they made at a restaurant I worked at: Place one scoop of vanilla ice cream in a glass. Fill glass with chilled, strong coffee or espresso. Add a tablespoon of your favorite flavored syrup. Top with lightly whipped cream and a dash of cinnamon.
- Prepare this recipe for Vanilla Caramel Syrup to use in coffee drinks.
- Browse coupons.com for a huge variety of coffee coupons: Starbucks, Seattle’s Best, Maxwell House, General Foods International Coffees, and Eight O’Clock.
- Whip up my favorite Iced Mocha.
