Abe Lincoln

“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich...strengthen the weak by weakening the strong...bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift...lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." -Abraham Lincoln

Make do Monday

Welcome friends!  Today make do is saving money with oatmeal.  Instant oatmeal, you know the little packs of flavored oatmeal come in a cute little six pack is very pricey.  The big round tub of old fashion oatmeal is a lot less money.  Use one cup water and 1/2 cup oatmeal, heat in the microwave for 2minute 30 seconds, then add your own favorite toppings.  I like a little brown sugar and cinnamon.  You could add some blueberry, apple sauce, cinnamon and sugar, maple syrup, what every you have on hand.  Good hot meal on a cold winter day and money going back into the bank.  Remember you can just boil some water on the stove and add the oatmeal, just like your grandmother did!  Enjoy your day!
