Do you enjoy espresso? Perhaps you like a good cappuccino. As for me, I love a great latte, and I’m thankful for my new espresso machine!
You may be wondering, “What does this have to do with being a lawyer or law student?” Well, if you have ever been around many law students or lawyers, you would know that we love our coffee. Unfortunately, many of us spend $3 per day (or more) getting our coffee fix. Perhaps you do too.
Back to the FREE espresso machine. Yesterday, my new DeLonghi espresso/cappuccino maker (pictured at right) arrived via UPS (I hate how they knock and run!). I set it up, read the directions, and made hot chocolate for my wife and a latte for myself. This morning, I made a nice, tall latte to bring to class with me.
Two benefits come from making your own coffee in the morning. First, you don’t have to stop by the coffee shop. This can save time, since you don’t have to drive or walk there. Plus, you don’t have to wait in line. Second, you save the vast amount of money you would otherwise spend at the coffee shop, in addition to the gas money to get there. It’s a win-win!
How did I get the machine for free? I used my Westlaw reward points. As The Frugal Law Student explains, Westlaw and Lexis reward points are great ways to get nifty things for free. Sure, you have to spend a little time to earn some points, but we’re talking 5 minutes a week, and you can eventually get something cool.
