Lil’ Bit of Coffee, Encouragement and Savings

Lately I’ve been making my own iced mocha at home for a little afternoon refreshing, pick me up “snack”. It’s very simple and easy. I use my coffee that I brewed from the morning, a few splashes of milk, a couple squirts of Hershey’s syrup and some ice cubes and BAM! A delicious consolidation of coffee and chocolate.

While making a glass of it after lunch, jester 1 was watching me and started a conversation about the coffee…..

Jester 1: What are you making?

Me: An iced mocha

Jester 1: That looks easy and good.

Me: Yes, it is.

Jester 1: Are you making this so you don’t have to go buy an iced coffee?

Me: Yes, I am.

Jester 1: (with a big smile on his face) That is so smart of you mom! I’m going to tell dad, he is going to be so proud of you! You’re saving money! 

That jester 1, he is such an encourager. And what can I say, going through Financial Peace University does pay off.

  1. I got Allison a cold brew coffee maker a few years ago as a gift. We use it all the time. The only draw back to it is that it takes 10-12 hours for the coffee to be ready. But, the coffee stays good in the refrigerator for 2+ weeks.
