Save your leftover coffee!


A few months ago, in a fit of frugality, I started pouring whatever morning coffee was left in the pot into a pitcher in the fridge. By Sunday enough had been collected for two large, Leslie-sized, servings of iced coffee. I had no idea how much coffee I was pouring out! Of course, coffee isn't incredibly expensive, still, every bit counts, especially these days. Turning your leftover coffee into iced coffee is a great way to have a cool caffeine delivery system on a hot summer day and to waste none of that amazing brown stuff!

I love doing this! Sometimes I also save the coffee grounds in a jar and keep them in the shower as an exfoliator. The caffeine is supposed to be good for fighting cellulite! Not positive it works, but I say it's worth a shot!

Awesome tip, Aryn. Thank you!

Coffee ice cubes are good, too. My mother always used her grounds as fertilizer for her garden, but the cellulite tip - I am trying it!
