If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you know that my hubby is the spender in our relationship.  He’s addicted to Starbucks Chai tea lattes and the cost adds up quickly.  $6/day becomes $180/month or $2,190/year!

That’s over $2,000 that could be going straight toward destroying our student loan debt instead.  I was so excited when I realized that there are TONS of copycat Starbucks recipes available online!  My hubby can make his own Chai at home and it’s just as tasty as a Starbucks beverage.

I don’t go to Starbucks regularly, but I do treat myself occasionally to a Vanilla Bean Frappucino or a Double Chocolate Chip Frappucino.  I’m glad that I can make these drinks at home for a fraction of the cost.

Are you spending too much money at Starbucks?  Check out these delicious, less expensive Starbucks copycat recipes.
