In the afternoon, I love a warm latte to get through the rest of the day, but at $2.85 a pop it can get a little pricey. So, I am giving it up for the next forty days. Week one was tough but I did it! In the afternoons when I was craving another hot cup of joe, I went for a quick walk outside for fresh air and once back at my desk made a lovely cup of green tea. Do I miss my lattes, yes but now I have an extra $20. If I keep it up for all forty days, I am going to treat myself to something nice, maybe a new pair of shoes! They will last longer than a latte!
