Regattagirl, I just had to tell you that your post gave me the incentive to not refill my almost empty "frequent buyer card" at the local coffee place today and vow to not go back in there for quite some time. I even left my card out at work for someone else to take and enjoy the last $1.50 on there.

You know, I never, ever drank coffee. Then I move to Seattle where I swear it's like the law or something - that must be why there's 18 coffee places on every corner. It's not even the caffeine or the sweetener I'm hooked on, since I don't do either. But I could mainline half & half -- I guess I liked a little bit of coffee with my half & half. :) I thought I was being virtuous because I was *only* drinking the $2 iced coffee instead of the $4 lattes. I knew I was in trouble when the baristas knew me by name!

I started adding up how much money I was spening on this "cheap" habit. That $30 a month can certainly be put to some better use in paying down a credit card!
