A Cheaper Starbucks Latte: Order 2 Espresso Shots, Pour Own Milk

If you order lattes at Starbucks, here’s a way to get them to for less while still getting the same drink.

WXYC says what you can do is instead of ordering a latte, order two shots of espresso. Take it and walk over to the condiment bar. Pour in your own milk. Boom! You just made a latte, and it cost you less. Excellent work. You are a genius. You should probably order a chocolate chip cookie to reward yourself for your frugality… no! You’ve just undone all your hard savvy frugal work! Oh well.

This reminds me of the Ghetto Big Mac….
