Yes, that is correct. My credit card statement confirmed it – yours truly has not spent a single penny at Starbucks since the $3.40 soy vanilla latte over a month ago.
I think this might be the longest I’ve gone without Starbucks in… well, a long time.
Anyhow, my credit card statement for September hovered around $350, compared to my August statement, which was a whopping $1,700 (mostly due to my unrestrained epicurean habit in NYC). My spending for October will be a bit higher, as some significant expenses (the $100 car repair, for example) weren’t included in the September statement.
The “latte factor,” alas, was not a significant factor in either the low spending this month nor the high spending last month.
So… perhaps tomorrow I shall treat myself to a latte? 😉
