I've taken to really liking Mocha Latte's. But Starbucks they like to charge $4 for one drink. My mom told me that she's going to get me a nice espresso machine for my birthday, but my birthday isn't until the end of August. So I took a couple Target giftcards that I have earned and "bought" myself a cheap Mr Coffee espresso machine. When I get a new machine I can easily regift this or sell it. The machine cost $34.xx free with GCs. So if I use it 15-20 times it will pay for itself and the coffee and milk. Luckily my CVS sells the Starbucks coffee and I get my milk there for free. Enjoying a free latte at home is priceless. And it'll save me from myself when I run across the street to Walmart and have to drive past the Starbucks to and from.

Great idea! I wish they still sold the syrup to make your own iced coffees at home - I sure miss that this time of year. Those are my weakness!

What a wonderful idea! I bet the savings will add up to quite a bit over a years time.

Precious- I can't wait to see my savings from that little.

Chicago-I'm going to try and figure out how to make them like the frappuccino that they sell at Starbucks. I'll let you know if I have any luck.
