Save Money Without Cutting the Caffeine

It’s a new year and for many that means time to reassess the finances.  Many of you may even made a New Year’s resolution to save more money.

For most, the thought of saving money isn’t the most pleasant.  It could even mean giving up things that you have come to really enjoy – like the daily trip to the coffee shop.

While it’s true, the most frugal way to get your coffee is to make your own at home, that doesn’t mean you have to give up the coffee shop altogether to save money this January.

All you need to do is visit your local RaceTrac during the month of January and go to their “Crazy Good Coffee” bar to get any size coffee for $1.   That can end up saving you quite a bit.  Just check out some of the comparisons below.




Even better you get to be your own barista and make it exactly how you want it, even to the point of wanting your coffee hot or iced.

First, select your favorite coffee blend.  There are 6 to choose from:





  • Columbian
  • Dark Roast
  • Decaf
  • Guatemalan
  • Hazelnut
  • Regular

and all are made from 100 percent Arabica beans.


Then the real coffee shop experience begins.  You get to customize your $1 coffee exactly how you want it.  I know there are way more toppings and add-ins here then I have at home.  You can even get marshmallows.


My favorite combination so far has been the Irish Creme Cafe creamer mixed with Hershey’s Chocolate Caramel Creamer with whipped cream on top.  Yummy and it was only a dollar!
 While I don’t visit the coffee shop daily, my teen age daughters think it’s a real treat to get flavored coffee from a store.  Normally this treat ends up costing at least $10.   But not when I took them into Racetrac.  It only cost $2 and they still felt it was a big treat.  In fact,  they loved getting to make up their own mix of flavors.  My 5 year old had fun helping too.   We will definitely be having another mother-daughters outing  in January to take advantage of the $1 Crazy Good Coffee from Racetrac.
