Save Money By Switching To The Big Box Of Quaker Oats!
Members Were Sparked
Where I live the boxes of flavored oatmeal packets are close to $4.00 per box, with 8 packet servings. The Large round box of Quick Quaker Oats is ALSO $4.00, but there are 30 servings of the same size. Just add your own fruit, or cinnamon and it cooks almost as quickly. You don't need all the ADDITIVES in the flavored packets, either, so there's savings in both money and health!

When the sale papers arrive I take 1/2 hour and go through them to write down what's on sale. I then plan my menu by the best sales. For the most part I only go to one store - once a week. If another store has one or two items on sale that are too good to pass up I will go but only for those item
Combine sales with coupons - save in reg. grocery stores more then big box stores.
If you're trying to add oatmeal to your diet, you're probably eating instant oats. Quaker's Weight Loss has about the same calories as the Quaker's regular, but 3 more grams of protein and fiber, and 4 fewer carbs.
For even more protein, make it with skim milk instead of water. Yes, it adds 60 calories, but also adds 6 grams of protein.
