Frugality February

Congratulations to The Winner of #FrugalFeb.

Welcome to Frugality February.

How does the Frugality February challenge work?
For the whole month of February, we’re challenging you to go a whole month without purchasing coffee (or tea if you’re not a coffee drinker).

Why coffee?
Because cutting costs on buying coffee is an easy way to save you a ton in the long run. Whether you realize it or not, you’re probably spending more money on coffee than you think you are. Just think about it. If you purchase just a regular no-bells-and-whistles coffee every morning on your way to work, think about how fast that adds up by the time you reach the end of the month.

The alternative?
Pack your own. Maybe this means getting up a few minutes earlier every morning or even investing in your own travel mug or coffee making system if you are a habitual coffee buyer. For some inspiration, check out the article on our favourite at-home coffee making essentials.
