That Starbucks time of the year

One of the signs that Christmas is just around the corner is when Starbucks start taking out the red cups! It's time to fill up the Starbucks planner sticker card for that 2012 planner.

I don't really know when Starbucks started this annual red cups and planner custom. My first Starbucks planner is their 2005 edition. I just missed the 2009 planner because I was in my last trimester of pregnancy and eventually just gave birth during the sticker collection period. I wasn't able to drink much coffee that time. Too bad. :(

The first few years planners were so "sulit" because the coupons were almost all-year round. Most of which are free drinks! Those were the days!

When I opened my Facebook account this morning, I saw this from Starbucks Philippines' official Facebook page.

Yay! Just seven more days and I can get to taste my favorite Starbucks Toffee Nut Frappuccino again! I am not quite sure what other Christmas drinks they will feature this year in addition to Toffee Nut. Let's wait and see.

Much to my delight, I even stumbled upon a blog where the 2012 planners were featured. Cool designs and they even added more designs to choose from. There were three designs last year and now they have five. I like the pouches that goes with the planner. For a more detailed description, head on to this blog by

Head on to your favorite Starbucks branches on November 3, 2011. Save the date, my fellow Starbucks addicts :)

Oh my gosh, I remember the days back in college when I would really hit Starbucks just to get them planners. I did actually get one, but I gave it to a close friend as a gift. Lucky bastard. Hahaha!

I stopped collecting the stickers when I, one day, decided to calculate how much I was spending and how much the planner is worth. I stumbled upon a seller on Multiply or was it eBay selling it for half the amount that I am spending for each cup!

Now I just settle for my phone's calendar. :D
