My eyes have been opened for the better, fam. Trader Joe's now has a shelf stable Matcha Almond Beverage for only $1.99. It's essentially a matcha latte pre-made and ready to drink.
I'm a big advocate of reusing items you already have to save yourself the money for other beautiful things that you want but don't already have. It's like having your cake and also having your ice cream - delicious.
I just wish I would have known about Costco's excellent seafood department sooner! For under $3 per serving I can have fresh seafood on the table for dinner, I never thought I could find such a healthy deal.
