RECIPE SUBMITTED BY Rick Thompson
Oatmeal Packets 

Here’s what you need:

Take a big thing of oatmeal (make sure to use the quick oats, mine was 42 oz. I went and checked, ha-ha) $3.78 at my local Wal-Mart

a box of snack-sized Ziplocs’ (or whichever brand you prefer) 

a 1/4 c or 1/2 c measuring cup (I did mine 1/2 c but my kids are 8 & 11 and then there is my hubs, the pre-made packets are only about 1/4 c so if you have itty bittys you can just do the 1/4 c)

a few spare minutes (probably took less than 10 minutes)
And here’s how I put mine together, feel free to add in what you and your family like:
1. I put 1/2 c oats in the baggie (could do 1/4 c if you have itty bittys, that’s how much are in the name brand guys pre-made packets)
2. Approximately 2 TBSP of brown sugar in the baggie
3. Zip it up!

For the water or milk part you add 3/4 c – 1 c of water or milk (for the 1/2 c oatmeal size), however you prefer. Easy-peasy! Done! Kids can even help on this one! You can also add in raisins, dried fruits, cinnamon, chocolate chips, whatever else you like in your oatmeal. So for $3.78 you now have 60 – 1/4 c packets or 30 – 1/2 c packets. The name brand guy for the same amount would cost you between $15 & $30 depending how much you would eat, 1 packet or 2 packets. I’ll keep that extra money thank you very much! How about you?
