Single-Cup Brewing

It is more efficient to brew one cup at a time and you can choose from a great variety. However, it can be very costly. The excess packaging also causes environmental problems.

Using regular ground coffee with a reusable filter in your single-cup brewer may be a little more work, but will save you money.

Traditional budgeting fails because they are unsustainable, focuses entirely on needs and ignores wants, and keeps you stuck on a cycle of looking backward.
