Starbucks Just Got a Little Less Budget Friendly

So, it's going to cost a smidge more to get your morning fix. Starbucks is raising their prices...again. I used to walk my son to our local Starbucks for a soy decaf latte...it gave us something to do, and as long as I could keep from spilling, it was great.

I finally accepted that the sweetened soy milk was just too sweet for me, so I stopped. I found another place I like better, so I get the rare treat. That said, I'd be pretty annoyed if I was still a Starbucks-ite since they raised their prices 5 cents in October 2006, and now another 9 cents. If your cup of coffee costed you $1.50 at this time last year, that's a 10% hike. Eep!!
