$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 and one pre-teen. This week a friend graciously gave us some ham, hummus and other food that she had leftover from a party, so you will see lots of ham in the menu.
If you need help with menu planning, now is a great time to try eMeals*–weekly menus based on your local store’s sales including recipes and a grocery list!

Please Note: I post my weekly menu to encourage menu planning and to give meal ideas, not as a nutritional standard. You should feed your family based on your priorities and values. You may not be able to replicate this exact menu for $125 because sales vary by region and you will have different items on hand, but you can save money just by using a menu. )
