$125 Budget Weekly Menu –After two years of $100 Budget Menus , we’ve increased the grocery budget to $125 a week for six people including three teens.
The main strategies I use to feed my family well for less are:
(1) Make a weekly menu plan based on the sale items at my local stores;
(2) Buy extras of the super sale items each week so that I am buying food at the lowest price.
