How To Make Cheap Copycat Homemade Starbucks Drinks

Copycat Starbucks Drinks

Life Is Sweeter When You Can Make It Cheaper

Imagine making homemade Starbucks drinks without the big price tag that comes along with it.

Starbucks is one of the high-end fast food/drink restaurants around and boasts a large customer base.

While we were picking up some groceries the other day both of us noticed the massive lineup at the Starbucks drive-thru.

My first thoughts were how many of those customers are regulars and that they must spend a fortune.

Keep in mind this is going on during the COVID-19 pandemic where many Canadians are laid off.

That’s when I thought about searching the best homemade Starbucks drinks on Pinterest for everyone.

Why not get busy in the kitchen and learn some new recipes and stop spending money at the drive-thru.

Frugal Living And Buying Coffee

Years ago I wrote a post about how much it was costing an employee to buy coffee every day for work.

The report I did was based on going to Tim Hortons where the costs of coffee are far cheaper than Starbucks.

Imagine if you spent $10 a day at Starbucks for one of their big coffee’s the Trenta which is 31 oz massive coffee.

Let’s do some quick mate.

  • 10 x 5 working days a week x 52 weeks (I know there are holidays in there) = $2600 just on coffee.

Imagine if you invested that money in a Tax-Free Savings Account how much money you’d save for your retirement.

As well, that figure is if you have only 1 Starbucks a day and perhaps you might even go when you are on holiday.

I was amazed at how much I could have ended up spending and started making coffee at home.

Now, if I want a coffee I use my allowance and when that’s gone I get nothing else.

If you’re one of those Starbucks star customers do a little test and track your expenses for a month.

Perhaps you’re not surprised which means you can probably afford to spend all the money you want there.

On the other hand, if you’re mind is blown with the high costs that add up perhaps limit what you buy.
