Could you bring a single serving sized coffee pot with you? I found a few on Amazon that aren't too expensive. Here is one with good reviews for $35: [link]
If you are flying maybe put it in your check in baggage?
I have this, not the best coffee maker but it makes a good cup for the price and better than a keurig I would think.
BRO! I can save you some money with the volume of Coffee you are using to brew... BLAMO! ... You can use the fancy shit and cut the foldgers, pitch the k-cup BS, and hit the real caffeine. This thing changed my world, no filters, easy clean, takes little time...
I like this one, its simple. You just pour a mug of water in, add the coffee and push a button. The filter is super easy to clean. Good luck!
I'd buy a single serve coffee maker and maybe a good coffee mug
I think he means like this.
Single serving. I bought mine 2 years ago, use it every day, and it still works fine.
You need to accurately track your purchases. Mine.com is a pretty handy tool, will automatically categorize your spending so you can see where its actually going.
If you're eating out for every meal, you're likely spending $40+ a day on food. Thats around $1200 a month.
Do you buy a coffee every morning? If so, get a $40 coffee maker like This One and make it at home to take to work.
You mention not being able to go to the grocery store often. Is it possible to get groceries delivered through pea pod or some other service? This will likely save you significantly on lunch and dinners instead of ordering out all the time.
Is your cell phone still under contract? Take a look at switching to a prepaid service such as Net10, Straight Talk or Google fi. Plans can be had for $50 or less in some cases. Even if you are under contract, look at the early termination fee, depending how far along in the contract you are it may be worth to to pay the fee to be able to cut your bill in half.
What home security system do you have? Is it under contract? You could look to switch the monitoring to another company like Alarm relay.com
I recently installed a Honeywell wireless security system and self monitor for $10 per month. Full monitoring can be had for $15.
You mention buying new light bulbs from amazon. Try calling your electric company and see if they offer an Energy audit. In my area, you can get an audit every few years. During the audit they will replace your bulbs with LED's for free. They will also look at ways you may be able to save energy further (blown in insulation, air sealing, etc) which may help even more. Any suggestion they make are done at a deep discount, and can be financed on your electric bill. I had my crawl space sealed for $700 when it would have cost me $3k. It also saved a good deal on my heating bill.
Not sure what you have for a bank, but consider opening a high interest savings account at Ally.com and transferring a percentage of your money there. So its out of sight, out of mind. If you "see" less money in your main account, you may spend less.

What you think about this?
If it's not too late I have a coffee maker recommendation. If it's just you drinking the coffee and you only drink 1-2 cups at a time but you still want to use your own grounds and not use kcups. I have had this Hamilton Beach coffee maker for about 3 years now and I still love it.
But again, a normal coffee maker and Keurig would be cheaper than a Nespresso machine, even on sale. Here’s a single cup coffee maker for $35. A cup of coffee made from coffee grounds would be cheaper than any pod or capsule. Here’s another example, this Keurig machine is $65 everyday. I can imagine it’s cheaper at other retailers during sales. The pods are also easily accessible, and can be purchased at many grocery stores. I’ve never seen anything similar for Nespresso pods at a grocery store.
I’m just confused, if you’re not willing to use official products for an expensive device, why purchase it? Like don’t use 3rd party services to replace an iPhone screen, replace it with Apple to avoid any issues. Don’t buy an expensive phone if you can’t afford or don’t want to pay for the expensive repairs. Don’t purchase expensive machines if you don’t use their official products, it can damage the machine.
Idk, one of these seems to work just fine with a normal amount of coffee.
I started out using my parents old Keurig when i was in the dorms with a refillable k-cup but was often disappointed with its' overdilution and difficulty of finding a good grind size that wouldn't also clog up the innards of the Keurig.
Next I purchased a French Press on sale for $20 somewhere and lucked into receiving a free Hario Skerton manual grinder. Soon after that I added an Aeropress to do iced coffee options. The issue I had with these was all the cleanup required while not having immedate kitchen access (it was on the first floor, and i was on the second down the hall). I did really enjoy the above FP and Aero for when I can take my time making a cup though.
Thirdly, I purchased a Hamilton Beach one-cup brewer for $40 which I used most frequently. It won't compare to some of the $180 brewers but it will make a quick and strong one cup with easy cleanup.
