Recession-Proof Your Morning Cup of Joe

Recession-Proof Your Morning Cup of Joe


Consumers are poised to face a surge in prices for everything from home goods to daily essentials due to the COVID-19 pandemic. If you're looking for ways to preserve some of your hard-earned cash, it's time to take a hard look at your spending habits. One of the first places that should be on your radar is a morning cup of joe.

Keep It At Home

You can make your coffee at home. Buy a machine that will brew your coffee for you, and then take it with you to work. No need to stop on the way, just grab a cup from your own fridge.

If you don't want to make your own coffee every morning, start by stockpiling some of the beans in bulk. You might not be able to buy all of them right away, but as each week goes by and one more ton of ground beans is added to the stockpile, consider buying another pound or two per week until there's enough storage space available for everything that's needed (for example: one pound per week would take 10 weeks). This method allows flexibility while still keeping costs down because it allows some room for error when planning purchases ahead of time -- if there are any unforeseen circumstances arising during those times when funds may otherwise be low due to unexpected expenses or unforeseen circumstances such as losing power due solar flares causing blackouts across most major cities around globe where most people live which causes losses incurred by businesses unable refunding money spent​

Make a Budget

A budget is a plan for spending money. It helps you know how much money comes in, how much you have to spend each month, and what your savings goals are. Budgets help you stay on track so that when the unexpected occurs (and it always does), your finances won't be impacted too severely.

A budget can be made for anything: coffee, food, rent or mortgage payment, Internet service and more! You can even make a budget for your entire life if you want!

A good way to start making a budget is by tracking all of your expenses for two months straight so that you get an idea of what's going out and coming in on a monthly basis. Then try using an app like Mint or Quicken to create a budget that works specifically for your life situation.

Be Frugal

Here are a few ways you can become a more frugal coffee drinker:

  • Buy in bulk. You can buy your favorite brand of beans and grind them yourself, or you can get a bag of pre-ground coffee and use that if you'd rather not mess with the grinder. Either way, buying in bulk will save money over buying individual servings.

  • Make your own coffee at home instead of going out for it every day (or even every week). If you're looking for fancy new gadgets to help make this easier on yourself, there are tons available on Amazon that do everything from grinding beans to heating milk to frothing milk—you don't need them all at once but they're nice to have when you want something other than an easy cup of black joe! Here's one example:

  • Buy online when possible (many people find this option preferable because they don't have time to run around town picking up their daily fix). You can also get some really good deals on specialty drinks like lattes if you search around—try searching “latte maker” or “espresso machine” with keywords such as “cheap” or “bargain prices” appended as well as any brand names associated with those products; most sellers will offer discounts if they know they're losing money by selling their items at full retail price (which is why stores like Target often offer coupons). If all else fails though then just check out one website which sells discounted #coffee - http://www

Buy Bulk

Buying bulk coffee is the ultimate way to save money, time and the environment. By purchasing your coffee in large bags you can save up to 50% of what you would normally spend on pre-ground specialty blends. Not only will it save you cash, but it will also help eliminate any waste created by packaging (and then throwing away) those little single serve packets that are so popular with some brands.

It's also good for the planet! Buying bulk means buying less of an item overall, which reduces your carbon footprint and helps fight climate change by reducing emissions from shipping or manufacturing new packaging materials – both of which require energy to make them happen.

But why stop there? Bulk coffee can also be great for the entire world in general because its economies of scale mean it can be produced much more efficiently than smaller packages would allow: less transportation fuel is required; less resources go into making cups/lids/stirrers etc.; fewer trees need chopping down for paper products; fewer employees get laid off due to lower costs...there are so many benefits!

keep in mind how finances can effect your coffee habit

Coffee is important. A good cup of coffee can make a bad day better, provide energy for a long hike or help you get through an afternoon slump at work. In fact, it’s so important that we should all be doing our best to keep our expenses down and save money on coffee.

The best way to do this? Tea! It’s cheaper than coffee, has less calories and tastes just as good (if not better). We know what you're thinking - tea doesn't give me the same boost that drinking two shots of espresso does. But think about how much money you'll save with your new favorite drink!

Let's go over some other ways you can save money on your morning cup o' joe:


We know that coffee isn’t as big of a deal as other financial issues, but we hope this article has shown you ways to save on your morning cup of joe. Although no one knows exactly what the future holds, it’s safe to say that following these tips will help you weather any economic storm.
