9 Awesome Things You Can Buy If You Cut Out Your Morning Coffee Run for a Week

I've got a little problem—I love my morning coffee.

Although I could easily prepare it myself at home, I have a nasty habit of going to my local Starbucks or Coffee Bean each a.m.

The bad part is once I have coffee, I also want breakfast. I end up spending anywhere between $3-7 on just a drink and breakfast sandwich alone. Not okay.

Last week, I tallied up the total amount I spent at both Starbucks and Coffee Bean and it came out to $36.30!

This really got me thinking. What could I have purchased if I made coffee at home or at work?

If you fall in the same boat as me and spend way too much money on your morning coffee runs, you might want to scroll below. To put things in perspective, I've rounded up just 9 things that both you and I can purchase if we skip a week of Starbs and Coffee Bean to-go.
