Swap a Coffee a Day for a Holiday

There’s nothing quite like a steamy cup of liquid energy in the morning, but if you’ve been spending a fiver a day on coffee, and thought nothing of it, take a look at how you can turn a coffee a day into a holiday.

If you’re like most, and opt for a medium latte each morning, on average you’re looking at a $4.50 spend per day, and once the working week is over that’s $22.50 put towards your coffee fund.

Well coffee lovers, it might be time to consider settling for an instant coffee this morning and leave the morning coffee run behind to put those funds towards a holiday.

So what would happen if you were to stop your daily coffee run for one month, two months, six months or even twelve months?

Let’s see…


The cold pressed stats:

$4.50/day x 5 days = $22.50/week

Cut out your coffee for 1 month ($90)

So you’ve lasted four whole weeks without your morning cup-of-joe greeting you with an open lid. Now it’s time to treat yourself!

With $90 you could spend a day pampering yourself at any Peppers Spa Retreat. Perhaps your skin’s missing coffee the most, so an Elemental Nature Facial is the answer.

Or maybe you’d prefer to indulge in something delicious instead?

With $90 you can treat yourself to an incredible dinner at View Restaurant in Noosa.


After 2 months without your caffeine fix ($180)

It’s time to book a night away!

Take a little mid-week getaway with these accommodation options as low as $129 per night. Otherwise if air travel’s what you’re looking for, book a flight from Sydney to Gold Coast for as little as $79 one way.


6 months without the Americano ($540)

It’s time to get out there and experience life beyond the Americano! With $540 you can go on an Exclusive Sailing Cruise with Seafood Lunch & Bubbly for two.

Or what about a stay-cation in your own city? Sydney-siders can get a weekend stay-in for two nights at Mantra on Kent. Melbournians it’s time to put your feet up at Mantra on Little Bourke, Perth you’ve got Mantra on Hay.


12 months becomes the daily grind ($1,080)

If you’ve gone this long without your morning coffee, your funds are going to be looking rather healthy, so it’s time to go overseas!

Treat yourself to a lakeside escape at Mantra Lake Tekapo for four nights just over $1,000, set in the rugged alpine heart of New Zealand's South Island.


Otherwise what about flying north?
