You Spent How Much...?

Tabitha and I sat down to look at our finances last month. It was an eye-opener. We figured out we spend over $200 a month at Starbucks. And that was only the purchases on our debit card.

So we cut out trips to Starbucks.

It's killing me.

But it's not killing me as much as it's killing Tab. She is only buying a morning chai three times a week instead of everyday. She's making her own chai at home but it's not the same. I do admire her sacrifice.

I miss my afternoon vanilla latte. There's nothing like a late afternoon shot of caffeine to ensure a restless night's sleep. I've been brewing my own cup of coffee every morning and taking it to work in a travel mug. The darn mug leaks a little. Not cool.

On Tuesday a co-worker bought me a cup of coffee at Starbucks. I had a grande Pikes Place. It was good.

Real good.

$200 on Starbucks? No problem...

Latte before bed? No problem...

Looking at your finances? Dude, what the hell were you thinking??!!

I put it off for a long time.

But at the end of the day, I really like my wife and I want to stay married to her.
