Make Your Own Instant Oatmeal

February seems to be a month when we eat a lot of oatmeal. Even though the store brand packets are fairly inexpensive they still come out to .25 per packet. Bob eats two packets every morning and usually adds more raisins, nuts and/or brown sugar. This month I tried making my own packets. We really like them and they are much less expensive.
