I don't know where you live; but, the most I pay for my coke habbit is $3.50 a twelve pack. As for the wine I would have to say as a former waitress its usually 3.25 glasses to a bottle of wine. I would never pay more than $4.00 a case for bottle water. I can only conclude the I am more frugale then most with the exception of the wine.

Hi nomadreader: Every person is going to pour their wine a little differently. I've always grown up hearing it was 6 glasses. http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_many_glasses_of_wine_in_every_bottle_of_wine Also, I called several Starbucks locations, and their prices are a little different around the country(probably due to to the shipping of coffee and milk as well as rent in the area). I agree with you though, they are expensive beverages. One thing you can count on...is if you make them at home, you save yourself some big bucks.

Where in the world is the standard for wine six glasses in a bottle? Also, my lattes are usually almost $5 at Starbucks. $3 sounds pretty good!
