Every morning on the way to work, I try to resist the temptation of the road that leads to Starbucks....But there are just some most mornings that I want NEED my Zen!
This morning was one of them. My justification(today)is that Thursday = almost Friday and that little bit of umph is exactly what I need to to get me through the day. So I did it! I took that turn and followed the yellow brick road to recieve my "simply, delicious, feel good" order of "Grande Iced Green Tea" which is $2.10.So I starting doing the math...if I get Starbucks every morning during the work week to "just get me through" I will spend $10.50, which is then $42.00 a week, which is whopping $504.00 a year!!! Oh Lord, my husband would just croak!! I know I could just buy Tazo Zen Tea and brew me a cup of at home, but its so much better when you get it at Starbucks! It taste better, the cups are cute(expecially during the holiday) and it gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling that I dont get when I make it at home. It keeps me sane. However, In order to save my marriage over this huge expense, I will find the strength to keep my simple pleasure to a minimum of 2 maybe 3 times a week!
