Frugal Tips :: Coffee Rinse

If you are anything like me, you love your morning/afternoon/late night coffee. Yes, it’s good at any time of the day, and one cup doesn’t always do it…

And, if you are anything like me, you also love your coffee creamer. Not too much, just enough for a little extra flavor (and Italian Cream happens to be the only flavor I add).

Along with coupon clipping (hoarding), sale shopping (stocking up when they’re cheap), I also always make sure I use up every drip possible. At the end of the bottle, when there’s only a bit of creamer left, I always pour a little fresh coffee into the bottle, swish it around, and then add that to my drink.

This might seem silly, but why not save the little bit at the bottom/edges that you can? I noticed whenever I rinsed out my bottles (to recycle them) that the water rinsing out was awfully white. With my current “coffee rinse” technique, the water that rinses out now has much less creamer in it. Over time this adds up pretty quickly.
