Starbucks is great to have once in a while, but keep all of your receipts and you'll very soon be terrified by how much you've spent to quench your thirst (or to satisfy your sweet tooth). According to The Daily Meal, last year, we spent an average of about $30 to $40 a week at Starbucks - that's about $2,080 a year! 

Luckily, amazing people across the Internet have concocted copycat recipes of your favorite drinks so that you can make them for dirt cheap at home. Cheers to that!


1. Kerry from Squawkfox broke it down ingredient by ingredient. She saved a total of 92% (and gas money!) on her homemade frappucino, which could run you almost $5 at Starbucks. If that isn't #winning, we don't know what is.

Find the recipe here.


2. A necessity to cool off, the Very Berry Hibiscus Tea Refresher is an iced tea lover's dream.

3. For those of you who need coffee to get through your day, try this homemade Americano.

That's just the cost of the drink, you forgot the cup, straw, overhead, employees, insurance, etc. Drive thrus are extra cost by the city too.

I set a certain amount on my Starbucks card, and I keep track that way.
