Scrimp/Splurge: Chai Tea

Splurge: $3 Chai Tea from the coffee stand outside the office

After my first month at the office, I found out that the orange coffee pot contained regular coffee. Instead of drinking 2-3 cups of decaf a day, I was drinking 2-3 cups of regular coffee. This would explain why I was slightly jittery all day and had trouble falling asleep at night.

To stop drinking so much regular coffee, I decided to have one cup of Chai tea each morning, which I could get from the coffee stand outside.

Scrimp: $3 box of Oregon Chai Tea from Trader Joe’s (7 servings)

After paying $15 in one week on Chai Tea, I found a box of Chai Tea at the grocery store. It tastes wonderful and takes about a minute to prepare it at home.

  1. Another person might have flipped those labels (scrimp/splurge) but I like your interpretation. You have a long and happy life ahead of you. ~ Mom
