I did not start drinking coffee until after my second child was born, and after she refused to sleep through the night for a solid year I adopted a solid coffee habit. It’s about the ritual for me. I’m not usually the sort of person that rolls out of bed and grabs a cup of coffee right away. I like to save my coffee for a moment that I can sit and enjoy it.
Let’s be perfectly honest, there are many mornings with no time to stop and enjoy my coffee. We all have those days when we’re on the go from the moment we drop the kids off at school until the moment they’re piling back into my car. Thank goodness for travel mugs on days like that. However, whenever possible, I like to grab a quiet moment at home once my kids have been successfully delivered to their classrooms. Those few minutes where I mentally prepare for the day, make a checklist (oh, how I love a good list) and enjoy my coffee are some of my favorite moments of the day.
It’s no surprise that these moments are so important to me because I like routines in all forms. No one will ever accuse me of being spontaneous because I am a girl who likes a plan. I reserve Fridays for my big grocery shopping trip and Sunday afternoons are for planning out the week ahead of me.
California recently passed a law that requires grocery stores to charge ten cents per grocery bag, and quite frankly this thrills me. I have always had a stash of reusable bags but I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not the best about remembering to put them in my car, or even remembering to get them out of the car once I reach the store. I have tried to solve this problem by keeping bags everywhere. I store bags in my trunk, in my husband’s car and even a few inside my purse, just to make sure I’m never without a few bags. My kids are also a great help with this, shouting “Do you have the bags?” as we get out of the car.
I’m a big believer that routines make my life better and I love when brands I love believe in doing their part to make lives better in the communities they serve. So, by grabbing Starbucks® Pike Place® Roast on a trip through Albertson’s I am also helping to support the Starbucks partnership with Conservation International through their One Bag One Tree Initiative.
- For every bag of Starbucks® 10-12z & 20z Ground or Whole Bean coffee purchased at participating Albertsons Company stores in the U.S. from May 1st through May 28, Starbucks, through its partnership with Conservation International, will provide one disease-resistant coffee tree to a farmer in Mexico, Guatemala or El Salvador.
- For each bag sold, Starbucks will donate 70¢ – the average cost of a tree – to Conservation International to foster thriving coffee communities.

Our family is doing our part to make easy, sustainable changes that have a positive impact on the earth. To name a few, we use reusable water bottles and travel mugs when we’re on the go, we are making a serious effort to use reusable grocery bags, and we’ve nearly eliminated our bottled water use by using a filtered pitcher in our refrigerator.
Helping Starbucks make a big impact is as simple as picking up your favorite Starbucks® ground or whole bean coffee in an Albertson’s or Safeway store. If you’re anything like me, the smell of coffee in your kitchen in the morning is all the incentive you need.
