68. Prepare Your Own Coffee

Buy a cheap coffeemaker, prepare it in the evening and then simply flick the "on" switch in the morning to brew delicious coffee while you're in the shower or putting on your make-up.

If you buy a Thermos flask as well as a coffeemaker, you can take freshly brewed coffee to work instead of spending considerable amounts of money on buying coffee at coffee shops every day.

The cost of coffeemaker and flask come to no more than $30 - $35, money that you will have made back very quickly by saving on shop-bought lattes.
