Coffee is Always a Good Idea

When Wayfair asked if I'd share my morning ritual for their #CoffeMyWay campaign, I was happy to oblige. After all, it's a rare morning when I'm without coffee.

Ever since I started my spending freeze, the one thing I've missed more than anything, is my weekly (mostly daily) Starbucks runs. No matter how much sleep I get, I always need that extra push to wake up in the morning. So, without the funds, I've had to become resourceful. (By resourceful, I mean actually having to use my Christmas present that I NEEDED so badly at one time)



I got a Keurig for Christmas a few years back and have recently been experimenting with different K-cups.  There are literally dozens of different flavors! I haven't been able to recreate my favorite Starbucks drinks yet (Starbucks is seriously magical and makes coffee taste 100% better), but my Keurig is a nice second--especially when trying to save money.

My favorite thing about drinking coffee at home vs. the drive through is getting to use actual coffee mugs (pictured: "Miss Busypants c/o Shop Konfetti) I have quite the collection.




My mornings are typically spent in a flurry--after hitting the snooze buttons as many times as possible without making me late for work (it's an exact science, y'all), there's little time for coffee. Thankfully,  coffee with my Keurig takes less than 10 minutes to make.

I wish I could say that I wake up a few hours early and ease myself into the day by journaling or reading, but I haven't been able to make that happen. 

What's your morning (coffee) routine? Does anyone have any tips for waking up early?

  3. Starbucks makes the best jugs of iced coffee in the refrigerated section of grocery store. I actually like it better than getting from the drive thru!

  4. Love love your coffee mug, I am addicted to coffee mugs lately. I love my Keurig too, it really saves you 4 to 5 bucks from going out and buying coffee. I love the Chocolate Donut by The Donut Shop.

  5. I LOVE my Keurig! I got it for Christmas and use it all the time. It's funny because when I don't have school, I'll make a cup in the morning. But when I don't have school, I don't make a cup until I get home from school so that I can have some energy to get work done!
