I did a cost analysis of my espresso machine today. The machine cost me $385+some tax. DH and I drink 1 latte each once a day. My coffee beans (Lavazza) costs about $23 from amazon shipped. My Torani syrup costs me abut $5.99 a bottle. month supply of soy milk costs me about $6 from Costco. Rounding up per month, the supplies I need for my daily grind is $34.99. On average there’s 30 days a month x 2 cups per day = 60 lattes. $34.99/60=$0.58 per latte. DAYUM GINA! If I were to calculate the cost before espresso machine it would go something like this: ($4.75X2)x30=$285. Yep, people, that’s how much we were spending on espresso every month, sometimes more. I figure by mid September my machine would have paid itself off =) Yeehaw!
Another blight of goodness, I got recognized during an important meeting today about the project I’m working on. Felt good that even though my immediate boss can’t see that I’m a great employee, the higher levels actually think I’m doing awesome! Oh, and I came home at 4 today as opposed to 7PM. Which, in my book lately, is a success!
