Tightwad Tip- Coffee

This tightwad tip does require you to spend some money up front, but in the long run will save you loads of money. Coffee is not cheap right now and if you are like me and enjoy a good strong cup of joe then you know those drip coffee makers tend to go thru the coffee. Well, a couple months ago I ran across a percolator that I had stuck in the cabinet somewhere. Since my drip coffee maker was on its last leg and took up so much counter space, I pulled out the percolator and ditched the drip. The percolator saves me tons of money in coffee and the coffee tastes sooooooo much better. I only use about half the grounds that I used to use and with the setting just below strong, I get a rich full bodied coffee each and every morning. The percolator is a great tool to saving money on coffee. Now if I can get the family to cut down on tea I will be in good shape. Blessings, Kat

I love my percolator! Hubby doesn't drink coffee, but he enjoys it's aroma so he grinds the beans and gets everything ready the night before. All I have to do is plug it up! He usually does that too. The reason why I chose a percolator a couple of years ago was, I didn't want to drink a hot beverage that had passed through plastic, since plastic is not good for you, especially when heated. All of the coffee makers now have plastic strainers but the percolator is stainless steel.
