TBD on Ning

A Seattle-based woman by the name of Beautiful Existence (her legal name) has set a very strange challenge for herself this year – she plans to eat food and drink beverages only from Starbucks for all of 2013.

No, she’s not addicted to Starbucks products. Beautiful Existence just likes to set year-long challenges for herself. For example, in 2011, she only bought stuff from Goodwill stores. But there’s more to it than that. Beautiful wants to document the experience on her blog and show the world how communities benefit from Starbucks. “The company pays good benefits for part-time workers. That’s where my money is going,” she says. ”We’re really lucky and I would say actually spoiled as Americans because we have all these different eating options,” Existence adds. ”You go to all these other countries and they don’t have these luxuries. Really? Is it really going to be that hard for one year of my life to limit my menu? We’ll find out.”


she’s spent an average of $18.79 a day on food and drink. If she keeps her expenditures at this level for the whole year, she can expect to spend around $7,000 on her daily diet. According to the USDA, the average woman spends around $3,000 a year on groceries.

She should change her name to "Toomuch Money". If she had to budget like I do, she'd be very happy with her own food.

Besides the cost, I cannot imagine eating from the same menu,  day after day after day......

Very true.

I agree, luvy.  You can tell she's the type who likes attention by what she's named herself.  (And even if her parents really did name her that, then they probably gave her an overabundance of attention while she was growing up.)

Wonder if she's going to get a discount from Starbuck's for the publicity she's garnering?
