Well, I learned from my dear friend Nate the other day, that by using my coffee machine each day, instead of the ritualistic Caffe Ladro run (not a Starbucks fan - take it up with me later), I can save myself $1,000 each year!

Now we're speaking my language. That's worth it enough for me to try my hand at this penny-saving tip.

So you're telling me that if I add a little of this deliciousness into my morning cup of coffee, then I can convince Blake that I deserve (at least) $75,000 raise?! :)
