Many people and especially restaurants throw out almost as much coffee as they consume. This can get surprisingly expensive over time, especially if you tend to buy premium varieties. I found out many years ago that coffee does not get stale, as most people believe. It turns bitter because it's being kept hot. If you make coffee and IMMEDIATELY remove it from the heat and let it cool, it can be reheated for at least 2 days. As long as you don't reheat it to the boiling point, it will taste as fresh as when you made it. Over several decades, this trick has saved me many hundreds of dollars.
Left over coffee can be frozen into cubes for making iced coffee in the blender and also makes a very good gravy browning ingredient. A small amount has often been the secret ingredient in many of my recipes. (Not that I actually ever follow a recipe. LOL) Coffee grounds are also good for your garbage disposal and kitchen drains. Think of them as "roughage".
I'll be posting more money saving tips from time to time. This one alone should save you enough to pay for all of your Ice Cream, which of course is the whole point. LOL
