Advice From a Coffee Mug ☕

Advice From a Coffee Mug ☕

If you never thought your mug could change your life, think again 😉

From my new favorite reader of the blog, Alyssa:

Good morning J!

I was looking through the office coffee mugs this morning for the biggest mug available to try to get enough caffeine to get me through the day and I found this gem. Not only does it provide the sweet sweet goodness of coffee, but it comes with some good financial nuggets hidden in the dolla’ dolla’ bill sign.

Here are some of my favorites:

“Money that is earned with blood, sweat, and tears, is seldom spent like water”

“The secrets of economy is to live as cheaply the first few days after payday as you lived the last few days before payday”

“It is not the employer who pays the wages, he only handles the money; it is the product that pays”

“A study of economics usually reveals that the best time to buy anything was last year”

“The safest way to double your money is to fold it over once and put it in your pocket”

“A little hush money can do a lot of talking”

and one final one; “If all the rich men in the world divided up their money amongst themselves, there wouldn’t be enough to go around”.

Let me know if you want to hear any more coffee mug financial advice 😉 Because the back has a bunch more…

Of course the first question I had to ask was, “WHERE DID YOU FIND THIS GEM???” as well as “CAN I PLASTER IT ON MY BLOG????” and “WHY AM I WRITING IN ALL CAPS????“, and while we don’t have an answer to that latter one, we did get one for the first…

But alas we’ll have to keep wondering:

“I work in an architectural office and it was stuck in the back of the coffee mug cabinet. That’s all I know, so it’s a mystery how it ended up here!”

I say we all stage a coup and demand some answers 😉


Even beating out these guys!!

If you’ve got a mug to throw in the competition, now’s your chance to pass it over…

You know what they say, you can’t buy happiness but you sure can coffee! And that’s pretty close!

Bottoms up,
