Saving Big on Coffee
Last week, I noticed something new. On the bottom shelf of the coffee aisle, there was a silver foil bag labeled Restaurant Blend. It contained more ounces for less $ than our usual brand. It was worth a try. I took it home and poured it into a plastic Maxwell House canister that hadn't made it to the recycle bin. The taste test proved that this coffee was a great deal stronger than what we were used to. Now we use 1/2 the amount of coffee to water. Instead of the usual 6 scoops for 6 cups, we use 3 scoops for 6 cups. Savings on top of savings, and we all like the taste.
