Grand total: $85.50
This is a bit more than I usually spend, but given that I’m working in the library every day during the week, I bought a lot of snacks like raisins, dates, nuts, trail mix and instant coffee. The nuts especially are relatively more expensive than the other things that I bought.
Highlight Buy: Instant coffee packets
I am by no means a coffee snob. The most adventurous thing I’ve ever ordered at Starbucks was probably a white hot chocolate. When I can’t get free coffee from school, I order a small “tall” black coffee and add sugar–that’s it. My highlight for this month buy is the TJ instant coffee packets because they get the job done-no frills just facts.
The instant packets from Trader Joe’s come with sugar and cream already included, which means that I don’t have to grab a handful of sugar packets from Starbucks. I used to buy the instant packets from Starbucks, but the Trader Joe’s version costs $1.99 for ten packets, and it’s super convenient to just grab one from my desk when I need a little caffeine boost.
Until next month!
