You can often recreate your favorite coffee drink for way less if you do some of the work yourself. Learn what goes into the drink then use the free milk and sugar at the condiment bar to make it yourself.
Also, If you like regular java but find yourself pouring some out to make room for milk, ask for a smaller-sized amount in a larger cup. Most places will only charge you for the smaller size. How’s that for a pick-me-up?
