3 Reasons I’m Thankful For Starbucks To Go Cups

So if you follow me on Instagram at all, you’ll see that I already posted my #100happydays challenge for today. What I am thankful for is Starbucks to go cups.

There are a lot of reasons why I like these things and why they make me happy, but I’ll only post the top 3 reasons why I’m grateful for Starbucks to go cups.

1. Saves Me Money

That’s right, did you know that they save you 10 cents on every refill? Each cup costs $1 and so that means you only need 10 refills to make your money back.

Plus, if you drink as much Starbucks as I do, it will soon be well worth it.

It might seem little at first, but it all adds up. I am learning more and more that the little things that happen day in and day out are the habits that build up the foundations for our success.

Even though saving 10 cents might seem silly, after 10 times you have 1 dollar and after 100 times you have 10 dollars. Little by little you can save money on the habit that you already have.

2. Easy To Hold

The coffee bug is really easy to hold. This also might sound silly, but there are a lot of coffee cups and containers in general that are simply difficult to hold.

The Starbucks to go cup is really easy to hold and it does not burn you when you hold hot coffee.

One of my thermoses literally feels like holding a hot coal after you have poured coffee in to it. Plus, an extra bonus is that the Starbucks sleeves fit right into the container!

3. Easy To Drink

Again, it’s the little things. This glass is convenient to place in cup holders and other spots where regular coffee cups do not fit.

More importantly however, the lid on the glass stays securely fastened to the top of the cup, unlike the normal paper cups.

Finally, the lid has a little hole which allows air to flow into the glass so that you can drink continuously without any suction. Again, it’s the little things.

What about you?

So that’s it! Tell me about your Starbucks experience? I posted a picture of what these cups look like below so you can check them out yourself.

Have you tried the new pumpkin spice lattes yet? Let me know what you think! #100happydays is really just about being thankful and grateful for the little things in life.

Even though this is one of those little things in life, I am happy because these cups save me money, they are easy to hold, and they make drinking coffee convenient.

100 Days of Gratitude and Thankfulness



100 Days of Gratitude and Thankfulness

So have you heard of the #100happydays challenge that’s going around on social media? Well I have barely heard of the concept; however today when I was thinking of ideas to blog about I thought about how easy it would be to blog about 100 things that I am happy and/or thankful for.

So if you haven’t heard of 100 Happy Days, go check out the story. And if that isn’t enough, maybe you can read about Dmitry Golubnichy, who appeared on the Today show, and started this concept.


It’s been scientifically proven that grateful people who are thankful, live a more purposeful and fulfilling life. An “attitude of gratitude” is the way to approach life. There are so many benefits to living a life of happiness.

So I got to be thinking, perhaps writing 100 blogs would be a great idea. I mean, it would help me accomplish my challenge of writing 365 blogs in 52 weeks, but even better, why not post things that I am thankful for.

On top of all of that…

Today happens to be September 22nd… and ironically enough, there are 100 days left in the year (precisely 100, that’s right, I looked it up on WikiPedia). So, starting today, I am going to post about 100 things that I am grateful for and happy for.

The First Day

The first thing I am happy for is my parents. They have taught me everything and spent 18 years raising me to adulthood.

Through thick and thin they have stayed together and I am very happy and thankful for the foundations that they setas parents.

First, it was a foundation of love but most important, it was a foundation of excellence and morality.

The Challenge

Now I would like to challenge YOU as my reader, to join me in the #100happydays challenge and post 100 pictures, posts, status updates, or whatever you want for the next 100 days.

Do you think you can do it? I’d love to have a couple personal accountability partners who want to keep me accountable!
