If you are looking for a quick way to cut down on your grocery spending, buy some oatmeal and serve it every morning for a week. Add things like brown sugar, raisins or fresh fruit to add some variety for the kids.
You'll love how many breakfasts you can get out of that container of oatmeal, and it is an extremely healthy breakfast for the entire family. Oatmeal is low in saturated fat and cholesterol and may even help reduce heart disease risk.
And the Quaker Oats Container makes a great item for recycling! Use it to make musical instruments for kids by filling with beans or rice and securely taping the lid on.
Use it as a holder or knick knacks around the house.
Let kids decorate the containers with paper they have colored, contact shelf liner paper, left over wallpaper, or even yarn that they glue on. Then use the newly decorated containers anywhere in the house!
