Well, this would usually be a no-brainer, but it’s a good reminder that eating at home is MUCH cheaper than eating out. Especially if you’re an oatmeal eater.
If you like oatmeal, you’re going to love this: You can eat breakfast for less than 16 cents every day. Yes, 16 cents. So, if you’re stopping for oatmeal at, say, McDonald’s MDC, -2.22% a few times a week and paying $1.99 a pop (national average) — or at Starbucks SBUX, -1.59% where you’re shelling out $3.45 for your oats (suggested retail price, and you know you’re also buying coffee) that’s an annual savings of somewhere between $285.48 and $513.24 on oatmeal alone.
