My Mom was a first grade teacher, so I attended the same grade school. Occasionally, she would stay home to take a sick/personal day, and of course I wanted to stay home with her. Welp! That didn’t happen. I would beg and plead only to end up riding with another teacher who lived in our neighborhood.

I’ll never forget Mr. Bailey. He drove a pick-up truck that was a straight-shift (stick-shift for the young tendas). He ALWAYS kept a tall Thermos filled with blazing, hot coffee. It smelled soooo good as we rode down 150 to head to Valley. He would even drink it like it was water. That’s when coffee first piqued my interest. It wasn’t until I was in my mid-20s that I actually started drinking it on a regular basis.

Working in an office setting, there was always a pot in the workroom. One day I decided to grab the little 8 oz foam cup and give it a try. Shortly after that, I discovered this amazing invention called a Keurig. That was it! I was going to become coffee drinker! Here it is almost eight years later and I love coffee more and more.

Although I’m a fan of Starbucks, I’m not part of the cult. I will drink any kind of coffee as long as it’s good. Even my church has some of the best coffee, which is brewed from a local coffee shop. I also realized owning a Keurig saved me lots of money. Especially when it came to $3+ coffee or $5+ lattes. So why not share my favorite single-serve coffee cups, pods, or whatever you want to call them. Most of them are for the low!

Here goes…

Great Value Triple Chocolate Coffee, Medium Roast

Great Value Triple Chocolate Coffee Pods offers you the perfect blend of aromatic Arabica coffee and the sweetness of triple chocolate. Great Value brings together the richness, sweetness and boldness of three types of chocolates into a coffee blend that can create a spectacular mocha. Just top your coffee with a dollop of cream to make a mocha that rivals the one from your favorite coffee shop. This delectable blend of coffee and chocolate oozes flavor in every sip and will definitely make your everyday coffee experience so much more special.

Great Value’s Triple Chocolate coffee gives me the feels of hot chocolate without all of the sugar. Add a splash of Coffeemate’s Italian Sweet Creme Sugar Free creamer and you have yourself a winner. This flavor creamer does not have an aftertaste, while adding the perfect sweetness to coffee drinks. I also opt for Stevia (to taste) in my coffee over sugar.

GV single-serve pods are probably the least expensive that I’ve found outside of Publix’s BOGO sale. By the way, make sure you are using the Savings Catcher program while shopping at Walmart! You can read my post about it here. You will be surprised how much you save, and you can use you savings as an E-card for future purchases. I usually redeem my savings around the holidays to put towards groceries for our holiday feast!

Over the past year-and-a-half, I have gone from being extremely high to the lowest of low—and one thing that has been consistent is FEAR. You try to take a few steps forward and somehow something sets you back. I recently heard someone say, no matter what, keep pursuing that desire that is on the inside […]

Here I am thinking of so many random thoughts, like I always do the night before a race. So here goes… I still haven’t seen Girls Trip.  I’m falling in love with blogging all over again. I hate curling my hair, especially using a curling wand. I don’t care to watch The Walking Dead. I […]

If you read my last post about this cool new spot in Birmingham, then you know that I stumbled upon a NEW (to me) hot dog spot in the Avondale neighborhood also in Birmingham called, Hot Diggity Dogs. They are the home of some pretty dope hot dogs, vegetarian dogs, cold brew, and if I […]

Sometimes you just need to hang out on a school night with your tribe. Last night I attended a Birmingham blogger meet-up at one of the coolest spots in Avondale. I’m somewhat familiar with the area, but there have been so many new places popping up, I can’t keep up. If you didn’t know this, […]

This past July, I really wanted to run the Peachtree Road Race, but I was NOT ready. Not to mention, I had so much going on that I forgot to enter the lottery. That’s why I can’t believe I’m this typing, but… I’m a marathoner starting from the couch. Yes, I’ll be starting COMPLETELY fresh […]
