Coffee - How not to go without
Love to meet up with friends over a coffee? Are you suspicious that the increasing popularity of coffee is increasing the price exorbitantly?

Here are some tips to keep drinking coffee and keep more money in your pocket.

1) Do not look in the shiny glass cake cabinet. You are there to savour COFFEE.

2) If you must eat, buy an Affogato. It comes with two important food groups- coffee and ice cream that's food and drink for the price of one.

3) Collect a loyalty card for everywhere!

Coffee Cards
You can never have too many Coffee Cards


4) Forgo those added extras - your favourite caramel or hazelnut syrup - and drink it plain and simple.

5) Be a Barista trainee guinea pig. Volunteer to sit and sip at your local TAFE or coffee school while novice Baristas learn their trade.

6) Go to a cafe with a friend and accidently leave your purse or wallet at home.

7) Make your coffee before you leave home. Pour it in a travel mug and take it with you. This doesn't work so well if you are meeting at a cafe, but arrange to meet in the great outdoors and get some exercise at the same time.

Hope I have saved you the money to buy another mug. Bottoms up!

Here's another money saver. Take your own coffee in a sachet and order a cup of hot water.

when looking for value for money lunches, always look for those that include endless tea and coffee in the price eg buffett meals-especially like the Watermark at the Bay, great food etc but endless coffee!

But coffee and cake. It is like fish and chips. I don't just want a piece of fish on its own.
