Oatmeal ~ A Quick, Healthy & Inexpensive Breakfast

Family Balance Sheet

Price dictates whether or not I buy Quaker Oats or the store brand. Thanks for reading. A 42 oz container of name brand oatmeal has about 30 (1/2 dry) servings and costs about $3.69, which calculates to about 12 cents a serving. This would go down even more if you buy the oatmeal on sale and with a coupon, or buy the store brand.
