Starbucks is definitely one of my favorite splurges. Since the Whole 30, I have only been getting one of their pure, black coffees 1-2 a month.
Starbucks also has a 300% markup….whoa!
So how much will this cup cost you?
Well, USA Today has a coffee calculator! Who knew?
If you bought a tall veranda daily:
Roughly about $63 a month (wow, you will need to create its own category in your budget at this point!)
Annually, this cup of coffee will be about $766. Whaaaaaat. Insane.
So, if you want to retire in 30 years, you would be spending $22,995.
Um, what would you pay off this year if you had over $700? Think about that the next time you drive up to a coffee bar!
Make sure you think of coffee as a monthly splurge, not a daily necessity!
