I never finish my second cup of coffee. I always have good intentions . . . I always say to myself, “Yes, I need that second cup. One is just not enough.” And then when I get about halfway through it, and I am nearing the end of my getting-ready-for-work process, I don’t finish it and I leave it on the bathroom counter. Or if I’m feeling very OCD that morning, I’ll take it to the kitchen sink.
If you’re aware at all of my monumental cheapness, you will understand how this waste of the precious nectar of life is unacceptable.
Well, I have had a revelation.
Remember how I told you I was sleepy and kinda funky between 4 and 6 in the afternoon? How about iced coffee from my leftovers, and save myself the $5 that I would have spent at Starbucks? It’s hot out, iced coffee is good, iced coffee is free, iced coffee is yummy.
I realize a smarter woman would have figured this out already, but I have never professed to be smart.
Here’s what I did. Put the half a cup in the refrigerator before leaving for work and when I get home, fill a big glass with ice and a sweet-n-low, then pour the coffee over it. It’s already got cream in it so it’s perfect. Mix and enjoy. And then I blog while I’m enjoying my big iced coffee.
Aren’t you glad I shared this? I am so crafty. Not.
Happy weekend to you all!
