#1 - Check Timmie Into The Boards

Save $400, $800, or even $1200 a year, depending on your coffee drinking habits (savings based on a one, two, or three coffee per day habit). We all know that a Tim Hortons coffee now costs about $2.50 (that's $1.75 for the coffee and 75 cents for the accompanying donut - who are you trying to kid). So go buy yourself a coffee grinder for $19.99 at Canadian Tire, a Melita coffee pot and filter cone, and a pack of 100 filters. Buy your beans in 1 kilogram bags for about $8.99, grind them at home every morning, at a total cost of between $10 and $30 each month! Presto, coffee that is twice as good, at one quarter of the price!
