speaking of coffee
It's not the easiest thing to keep coffee in the house. To make us more mindful of how much coffee we go through, and help us PAY for the coffee we go through, I made the coffee bank. We throw fifty cents for a small or average sized cup, and a dollar for the few large cups we have. If someone wants to down the entire french pressed contents, they gotta pony up two bucks. We've had it for a few months and it seems to be working pretty well. It was a hot chocolate mix tin. I peeled off the label, washed and air dried it, cut a slit in the top, and decorated the front with paint markers. I think it looks kinda cute.
Once we decide we don't need or want it anymore, it can easily become a planter!
