This calculator tells how much your coffee habit bankrupts you

Cups of coffee

Unless you're getting all your java at Texaco, you're probably dropping more dough on coffee than you realize.

Luckily, the Good Samaritans at USA Today put together a handy calculator to help you estimate your crippling coffee expenditures. The tool asks you where you generally get your coffee (in a coffee shop or at home) and how many cups you drink a day, and then it spits out the money you'll spend in a month, a year, and 30 years. Unsurprisingly, people drinking Folgers are saving a lot more than the coffee shop addicts. We're not talking spare change -- we're talking full payments on your Kia Sorento. Read the numbers and weep.
