Friday's Favorites: Dunkin Donuts

This Friday's Favorites post has less to do with any great, frugal deal and more to do with what it symbolizes to me these days.

If you know my husband, you know he is OBSESSED with Dunkin Donuts coffee. We even have to brew it at home. "It's still not the same," he often reminds me. However, after I did some quick math of how much he was spending each morning on a large coffee, I convinced him that brewing coffee at home would be best. However, we do treat ourselves to the "real stuff" every so often. It makes him so happy!!!

Anyways, here's the frugal deal:

He bought a refillable mug and can now get essentially a large coffee (plus cream and sugar) for just $1.05.  That is steal here in Florida. Everything is expensive, but thank goodness the lower sales tax takes some of the pain away.

My week at work had been more than stressful, so I thought I'd treat myself on my long commute this morning. I took the husband's cup and made my way to the Dunkin Donuts. Best $1.05 I had spent all week! It was delicious.

The best part of the whole venture was using his cup. I'm a big ol' mushy mess these days, so using something of his was a delight and a comfort. I got to enjoy feeling "closer" to him the whole tasty cup of coffee. If you haven't tried Dunkin Donuts coffee, you are missing out! Go grab yourself a refillable mug, and be kind to Mother Earth, yourself, and your wallet. 

Think of my Coastie, too, while you enjoy the coffee... and all the men and women who serve their country away from the comforts of home.
