Making Your Own Recession Special Combo

Those of us who dig through our pockets to use every cent accounted for will be happy to hear about Dunkin Donuts’  promotion that lets us buy a small hot or iced latte on any weekday between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. for 99 cents through Nov. 11. You can also get a 99 cent Egg and Cheese Sandwich with the purchase of a medium or larger hot coffee through Nov. 1.

All I have to say is that when I dug for pennies out of my purse to run down to the DD next to my building, I literally gave myself a pat on the shoulder for remembering to bring an extra dime to account for tax, because the cost of the latte really comes out to $1.07, at least in New York. But, I can’t complain. Much. All things considered, the coffee gods have been on my side for the better part of 2008. From the two Starbucks coffee cards I received back to back that got me free Wednesday coffees from April to the end of July, a few free iced coffee days at Au Bon Pain, DD, and when a Joe the Art of Coffee opened in Grand Central and handed out free coffee and treats, the past months have left me very jittery and happy, though slightly dehydrated.

With a dollar latte in hand and my free bag of Terra Chips (see below), I have just demonstrated how to make your own recession special combo.
