$125 Budget Weekly Menu –See how I feed my family of six including three teens and a 12 year old for $125 a week. I’m keeping it super simple this week because I will be in Guatemala and I want to make things as easy as possible for the babysitter and my family. Check back later today to see my shopping for this week.

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. :)

Read how I feed my family for less without extreme couponing in my Save More-Clip Less ebook!

    Good luck with your Guatemala trip!
    White asparagus season had started in Germany. Our local street market is full of it, so it will be a lot of meals including it this week!
